Jon Jones will embrace the clinch game against Shogun Rua

Props: Fighters Only

"I'm definitely going to embrace the clinch in this fight, I look at my clinch as a little more active clinch, where I'm always looking for takedowns or different angles or strikes and things. MMA fighters pretty much, once they get into the clinch, they feel as if they're being dominant by pushing in. And that's not necessarily being dominant, that's setting yourself up to be thrown.

Jones is now training with his brother Arthur Jones( Baltimore Ravens) who is a skilled greco roman wrestler 

"I really don't see anyone in the heavyweight division right now being able to clinch with my brother and not get thrown. His wrestling is way, way, way above my wrestling. I was the second seed my whole career in wrestling because my brother was on my team… since he's been here, my Greco-Roman has just come back completely."

Jon  Jones will look to utilize his greco roman wrestling against Shogun Rua. He believes Shogun's muay thai background will set him up for throws in the clinch. Who do you think will win the clinch game maniacs?
