LOS ANGELES, CA – On this week’s UFC TONIGHT, UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones and challenger Alexander Gustafsson talk about the their upcoming title fight at UFC 165.
UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones on dealing with Alexander Gustafsson’s reach: “I think Alexander uses his reach really well, but he doesn’t use his as well as I use mine. If you watch his fights, he gets hit in the face a lot. He does a lot of things that I do, but I think I do them better.”
Jones on Daniel Cormier fighting Glover Teixeira in a number-one contender fight: “I think that’d be a phenomenal fight. I think Glover will win that fight. Cormier is a pretty decent wrestler, but he’s not ready for high level fighting in the light heavyweight division.”
Jones on if he’ll move to heavyweight: “I think it’s in my near future. I’m excited about moving up and challenging some of these guys. If Cain can do what he’s done at that weight, I believe I can do it as well. I do things that heavyweights aren’t used to seeing.”
Jones on why people should watch the fight this weekend: “You’ll be able to witness a dream come true. You’ll see me surpass Tito’s record. I’m more dominant than ever. My cardio is better than ever. My tactics are better than ever. It’ll be domination baby!”
