Check out the full hour long press conference and Q&A with the fighters at UFC 140. Light heavyweight champ Jon Jones speaks out about what he doesn’t know in the sport, here’s a few quotes;
“I am four years into my MMA career and there is so much that I don’t know. Jiu-Jitsu is a whole culture, Tae Kwon Do is a whole culture, Muay-Thai is a whole culture, boxing, the sweet science, I’m not even close to that yet. There is so much that I don’t know and there is so much stuff that my teammates are way better than me at. I just happen to be one of the better ones at merging them all together, but I have teammates that are so much farther ahead at different disciplines and that is what keeps me aware of the fact that I don’t really know anything.
“A lot of times people will come in and see me do pads and they will be like, “Wow his pad work isn’t really that nice.” Well, that’s because there are better kickboxers on my team, and there is way better everything on my team. Being around Jacksons MMA makes me realize that I am good at mixing it all together, but I am not the best at any discipline.”
