Current UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Jon Jones spoke with Ariel Helwani about his upcoming fight with Glover Texiara, not sleeping on him like he did with Gustafsson and most newsworthy, Dana White.
He asked how Jones Felt? “I feel good, I just had some lunch, had some coffee, I feel good”.
You slept on Alexander Gustafsson, are you sleeping on Glover Teixeira? “Oh no, of course not. ”
Dana White said that Renan Barão is the number one pound for pound fighter in the world, how does that make you feel?
“I can’t argue with what Dana said, he is not a fighter, he is a promoter. I can’t always speak for his logic when he speaks. His world really does not change anything, he is our boss, but he is no sense say. It’s whatever. ”
Dana White is really behind Ronda Rousey, he talks about her a lot, are you one of Dana’s guys?
“It’s hard to say, at the end of the day, at the end of the day all I got to do is win fights and hope that I have a great relationship with him. ”
When asked if Dana White has love for him:” He (Jones) said he does not want to say. I think the fans know where I rank with him. Let’s just say that I will never be Chuck Liddell and at the same time it’s cool, as long as we respect each other then it’s cool.”
Since you have a love hate relationship with the fans, why not go total heel on them?
“I am not ready for that, I love the fans. They are a positive force and light into the sport. I am not going to give up on some of the people. “
