UFC 126: Jon Jones can tell where Ryan Bader is at ‘mentally’

Quoteworthy:

"When you watch someone's interviews, you can tell where they're at mentally. There's certain words people use, keywords that show their level of confidence. Like, ‘If I win this fight.' Or, ‘I hope.' ‘I might be able to do this.' For instance, when [Bader] says, 'When Jon does that spinning back elbow he has his back open for a split second and maybe I can take his back.' Just the fact that he mentioned that in a Q&A tells me that's on his mind and that's a move that frustrates him, that's bothering him, so I should work on it and make it even faster and harder for him to see coming. People give a lot away in everything they say."

Light heavyweight prospect Jon Jones believes he has the undefeated Ryan Bader well scouted for their bout at UFC 126 from Las Vegas, Nevada on Feb. 5. If Bader is indeed focusing on the flashy fighting style of his opponent, it will be his downfall according to "Bones." With a handful of wins over accomplished wrestlers in their own right, Jones is confident that he has what it takes to stuff Bader's takedowns. What do you think, Maniacs? Is "Darth" paying too much attention to the flashiness of "Bones?" Or is Jones putting too much focus on Bader's interviews?
