Jon Jones Talks Lesson Discovered In First Encounter With “The Mauler”

Jones just lately appeared on the UFC Unfiltered podcast. “Bones” revealed what Gustafsson taught him within the first struggle (by way of MMAMania.com):

“I was getting used to people saying things like, ‘He is a lot like Jon Jones with better hands and better footwork.’ Everybody was saying he was a Swedish version of me. In my head, I was thinking he’s tall, has a presence about him, but he is not me. There is only one me, and it was almost an arrogance that I had. I was feeling like I was a product and he was a knockoff version of me. What he showed me was, hard work can beat talent when talent isn’t working hard. And that is such a true thing. I know I wasn’t doing the right things. I was in the heyday of my partying. Now I know what he is capable of and I will treat him as such. I will train for him like it is supposed to be.”

Do you assume Jon Jones is really taking issues extra severely this time?
