"It’s a blessing. There’s times that, say, he’s sparring and I’m sitting on the outside waiting for my turn and I just like to watch him. I like to watch great fighters and see where their confidence comes from. Maybe things that work for them may end up working for me as well. Being in the same camp as a guy like Jon Jones and watching him perform in the cage on a daily basis, it does nothing but help me. … What he brings to the table, the way I look at it, is to open your mind. Accept whatever you can do and put it to use."

Be like Mike "Bones." Undefeated heavyweight up-and-comer Travis Browne talks to Sherdog Radio about what it's like training with Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Light Heavyweight Champion Jon Jones. Apparently, it's a blessing, one that can perhaps propel "Hapa" to his fourteenth straight win a week from Saturday night when he trades blows with the equally massive Ben Rothwell on the main card of UFC on FOX 4 in Los Angeles. There's a lot of talk about who the next big thing at 265 pounds is ... does Browne fit the bill with a "Big" win at the Staples Center on August 4, 2012?
