In these hours, the coach of Jon jones, Mike winkeljohn, acknowledged the hope he has for the American UFC fighter. Although he was a dominant champion for several years in the Light Heavyweight, now he will have the most difficult challenges with the Heavyweight. Clearly this could be crucial for his career, although in his environment they trust that he can be the one to get that belt too.
Understanding that, Winkeljohn He began by emphasizing the following: ‘Heavyweight is a different animal, but Jon He spent much of his career training with some of the best heavyweights in the world. I’ve seen Jon do hundreds of rounds with guys like Alistair Overeem and Andrei Arlovski and Travis Browne. We’ve had a plethora of great heavyweights through Jackson, and Jon has been Jon Jones with all of them. “
“The skill level of Jon He’s so high, his fighting IQ is so high, I don’t think someone with a 20-pound advantage over Jon is going to make a big difference. He is such a skilled martial artist. I think the weight class intrigues Jon. You’re not just moving up the division, sometimes you can go up like 50 pounds. These guys are great. It’s not like gaining 15 pounds like everyone else, “he also added to his words.
Trust your power
For its part, Mike he acknowledged: ‘It can be a great leap. So that makes a big difference. Jon he has always done very well against the heavyweights. He’s always had the ability to turn things around and when it comes to IQ, Jon is that guy. If you’re fighting a guy like Andrei Arlovski with a big setback, you know how to nullify it. He really has quality and technique to be able to exploit this division.
“If you’re fighting a guy like Alistair Overeem, who throws a big hook on one knee to the body, you know how to avoid it. It is very good to read a fighter and know what he is going to do, sometimes before the fighter knows himself. He’s eliminated a division so it makes sense to move to heavyweight. I applied money to Jon to move to heavyweight and dominate there too, “closed the coach of Jon jones, Mike winkeljohn.
