Part of evolution is learning and innovating. Jon Jones, GSP, and these guys are proving it. Some camps plateau when another camp outworks them. It used to be Lion's Den. Then MFS (which produced Matt Hughes, Tim Sylvia, Pat M., Robbie L... Greg Jackson, ATT, Minnesota MMA, Extreme Couture... It's very important who fighters choose to train with. Look at Melvin Guillard, lots of talent but gets in trouble all of the time. BJ is finally starting to cross train and work his fitness up so his natural talents can flourish... I really wanna see Jon Jones develop!
