Karlos Vemola: I'd give Jon Jones trouble

by Ruarie Farrelly | source: addictedmma.com

How do you feel you would do if you were matched-up against Jon Jones right now? Do you think he would be in trouble with you?

I would like to think so. I think anyone would be in trouble with me. I would love to get up the top there. Jon Jones was lucky, he got his chance very early and very young so fair play to him, he's the youngest champ in UFC history. Everyone is eager for this chance, everyone wants to fight for the title, but everyone has to deserve it so that's why I need a fight like Stephan Bonnar or someone like that to prove I'm good enough to get the chance.

Many people regarded you as the best heavyweight fighting in the UK before you went on to bigger things...who do you think filled the void you left? Who is the man now?

Who is the man now? It's up and down now in the heavyweights. I like Ben Smith, he lost a couple of fights but now he's coming back. We've got Mark Potter coming up. There's Oli Thompson who I've trained with before, I've trained with Mark Potter I've trained with all of them. Mark has great hands.

  I thought this thread would be more Vemola hype. Turns out it's some dude just shitting on Jones. Carry on.

vermola looked worst than a high school wrestler yesterday. at one point he had markes right leg and looked like he was trying to lift him up and go for the slam (same way he took down seth) but it didn't happen and that pretty much took all the confidence away from him.

I think Vermola probably came in overconfident and didnt train in wrestling much thinking he was going to man handle Markes

Only trouble he'd give Jon jones is when he clinches his butt cheeks tightly while Jon rapes him
