Thread: "Skinny Fat" Jon Jones Returns from Injury, Begins Training for Alexander Gustafsson

Hybrid View

  1. Default "Skinny Fat" Jon Jones Returns from Injury, Begins Training for Alexander Gustafsson

    http://www.mmaweekly.com/ufc-champ-j...der-gustafsson

    UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones has been sidelined ever since his UFC 159 victory over Chael Sonnen.

    That is, he had been sidelined until Tuesday.

    UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones is set to fight Alexander Gustafsson on September 21. As of today, he's 67 days from his fight, so he'll go into full-fledged camp mode soon. But before he trains, the 18-1 fighter admits that he is a bit lazy and puts on some weight before fights.

    Jon Bones Jones ✔ @JonnyBones

    I am the laziest man in the world until it's time to work hard

    Well maybe not the laziest, I definitely needed time to recover

    I'm thinking about taking a before picture so you guys can see my level of #skinnyfat a little self-conscious

    So the guy who looked like the above pic at his weigh-in on April 26 looked like this on Monday:

    There are many paths to freedom....not all are peaceful.

    In before BonesKnows claims Jones is Getting ready for the HW division - since hes 2 fights away from cleaning out 205.
    And if you want beef, then bring the ruckus

    Let's just hope this UFC thing doesnt get in the way of his acting career.

    It was a joke, glad you were able to grasp that one. But in all honesty, he is two fights away from cleaning out the division. And before you or anyone else says he still has to fight Machida again all i have to say is this;



    UFC top 10 at LHW:

    1 Lyoto Machida (Finished)
    2 Alexander Gustafsson (Next fight)
    3 Glover Teixeira (should be next fight after Goose)
    4 Rashad Evans (5 round decision that wasnt close at all)
    5 Antonio Rogerio Nogueira (no where close to a title shot)
    6 Dan Henderson (2 fight losing streak - not close to title shot anymore)
    7 Mauricio Rua (Finished)
    8 Phil Davis (Working his way back up, still 2 fights or more away from a title shot)
    9 Gegard Mousasi (Dropped to MW if im not mistaken)
    10 Ryan Bader (Finished)

    What else is there for him to do at 205 pounds? Clear out the "top contenders" a second time?

    WE'RE NOT HERE TO TAKE PART, WE'RE HERE TO TAKE OVER!!

    I know it was a joke. Me reposting it was not a dig at you but instead adding to the humor of the deja vu of the pic and Kevo's post.

    In Order:
    - Machida (promised a title shot along time ago)
    - Gustafason
    - Glover
    - Lil Nog (he did beat Rashad)
    - Phil Davis
    - Thiago Silva
    - Anderson Silva (likely to happen anytime after Gustafason)
    - I would like to see Jacare move to lhw
    Anderson Silva:
    Best Fighter on the planet.
