"Suga" has been the one doing most of the talking, thus far, and "Bones" said after his recent title defense at UFC 135 against "Rampage" Jackson that he would be doing no such thing in the build-up to this one.
I guess he decided he had something he wanted to get off his chest to MMA Weekly:
"He's flapping his gums, talking to himself, to try and convince himself that he's ready and he has this and he has that over me. Rashad is saying he has my number, he knows what he can do, and he knows all this stuff. I know all this stuff as well (about him). I do really good on improv. I'm excited to see what I can do with somebody I've went with several times before. When I spar my team, there's a level of respect that's always there. To let that clutch off for the first time and go into turbo mode on him, it's gonna be interesting. I know where he's open and I know where he's gonna try and take the fight.
Sounds like Jones isn't too concerned about his past training with Rashad coming back to haunt him in their highly anticipated match-up, tentatively scheduled for early 2012.
But should he be?
What do you think Maniacs?
