We’re now less than a week away from UFC 165 which will be headlined by a light-heavyweight title fight between current champion Jon Jones and Alexander Gustafsson.
Check out what both men have to say about their upcoming fight below.
“I don’t think I’m going to change my approach too much. I’ve fought guys who are a lot more technical on their feet than Alexander and I’m just really confident that I’ll beat him at his strongest thing.”
“This fight has nothing to do with my belt, he’s not getting my belt. This fight is about me and me accomplishing a goal. To be able to have the most light-heavyweight title defenses and the most consecutive title defenses – it’s huge, just a chance to be the best at something. It doesn’t come around the corner very often, it’s right in my grasp and all I got to do is just respect my opponent, work my tail off, reach out and grab what’s mine.”
“Jones could attack me with anything. He’s unpredictable, you never know what he’s coming with. That’s why he’s so dangerous, that’s why he’s the best right now.”
“Everybody’s got weaknesses, everybody bleeds. It’s up to me to find out in the fight what he’s weak at and what he’s strong at. Everything that he throws at me I’ve seen before and can respond to it. It doesn’t matter what the situation is – I’ll have an answer for it.”
