“I’m an absolutely believer in [ring rust],” White told The Jim Rome Show. “[Muhammad] Ali was off for three years. He never looked the same when he came back after three years. I can tell you this: Jon Jones is an absolute freak of nature. He has been since the day he walked into this company. I think, and what I’ve heard Jones talking this week, he believes that he’s more of a complete fighter than Ciryl Gane is. Jon Jones feels like he’s the whole package and they’ve never seen anything like him in the heavyweight division.”
We’ll find out this weekend in “Sin City.”
