Find out why UFC 205-pound Champion Jon Jones is envious of former UFC Heavyweight Champion Andrei Arlovski. "The Pitbull," who also trains alongside "Bones" at Jackson's MMA in Albuquerque, New Mexico, is the new darling of coach Greg and despite being a "little bit jealous," Jones is also happy for the Belarusian brawler.
"It's great to train with Andrei Arlovski because he has this thing where he's so macho and so tough, but he really isn't, he loves his dog and he's just a good dude. He's developed an amazing relationship with Greg Jackson, one that I'm a little bit jealous of because Greg goes EVERYWHERE with Andrei. Andrei is his baby! It's great, I'm happy for him and I'm glad he's apart of the team. He keeps me on my toes and I'm fortunate to have him."
What's this? Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Light Heavyweight Champion Jon Jones tells MMA media members at the UFC on Fox 6 media scrum (watch it here) that he's just a little bit jealous of former heavyweight titleholder Andrei Arlovski. Turns out "Bones" is yesterday's news now that "The Pitbull" is hanging around his camp in Albuquerque, New Mexico, and monopolizing the attention of coach Greg Jackson. Still, the UFC 159 headliner is "happy" for the Belarusian brawler, who continues to stay busy on the stateside regional scene as well as the International circuit. Could Arlovski be giving Jones so pointers on his eventual move to heavyweight?
