UFC Quick Quote: Jon Jones can make his fight against Lyoto Machida very, very easy

"He’s going to be scary. In fact I think he’s already got people scared. There’s no doubt about it. He’s an anomaly with his length and the fact that he believes in himself. The neat thing about Jon is you can show him something and he goes OK, and five minutes later, you’ll put him in sparring and he’ll be trying it. He’ll just be doing it. Most of the time he pulls it off. He does the same thing in fights. He’s just a believer in his skills and his abilities, and that’s so huge in the fight game. It’s so mental. You’ve got to believe in yourself and have the confidence to incorporate these moves and these techniques into your game ... To fight Machida again with Jon Jones, I think it’s going to be great. I know Jon’s a believer. He’ll pull it off. He can make this fight very, very easy if he’d like to. Jon has those abilities."

More high praise for UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Jon Jones, who will defend his 205-pound strap against former division titleholder Lyoto Machida at UFC 140 on Dec. 10 from the Air Canada Centre in Toronto. Coach Mike Winkeljohn tells Sherdog's Beatdown Radio show that "Bones" can make his fight against "The Dragon" very, very easy if he'd like to. Is the Jackson camp sounding a little too overconfident? Or does Jones warrant all the accolades? Let's hear it Maniacs, who calling for an upset?
