Jackson: Jones Has to Watch Machida’s Speed, Power

By Sherdog.com Staff Nov 21, 2011
Greg Jackson, on “The Savage Dog Show,” discussing how Jon Jones matches up with Lyoto Machida:

“We’re going to have to watch Machida’s speed, and his distancing is key. He’s also a very creative fighter. He’s very quick on the in and out. He’s going to try to get past Jon’s length, I’m sure, with his jumping in and jumping out style and moving side to side. We have to be extremely careful with that. He does have one-punch power, so we need to be careful of his power. He’ll be very motivated because once somebody supposedly has that stature that Jon has now of this invincible machine, everybody trains really, really hard -- partly out of fear, partly out of ambition -- to take you down. I fully expect us to fight the best Machida that has ever fought, and hopefully we’ll be able to get around that and those problems.”
