UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Jon Jones will step back into action when he defends his title against Glover Teixeira this Saturday (April 26th) at UFC 172 but spoke for a moment about his last title defense against Alexander Gustafsson with MMAJunkie.com this past week.
Jones, who took a unanimous decision victory over the Swede in September 2013, explained how the closely fought bout changed things for him:
“That fight, it lit the fire under me that I really needed. I don’t like to make excuses, but I definitely think I’ve been more committed to other performances in the past. I could have been more committed to that fight, and I learned from that. I learned not to look past anybody.”
