Sergio Babu was the responsible for his Jiu-Jitsu trainings back then. How was he when you first got there?
Rashad is a phenomenal athlete. Rashad is a phenomenal athlete. He has a great ground game and he`s from wrestling, so he`s fiscally privileged. In terms of gi Jiu-Jitsu I can`t tell, but in terms of MMA Jiu-Jitsu he has a pretty efficient game. The rest of the teams have some highs and lows. There`re people with excellent Jiu-Jitsu level but some don`t really know it. But, in general, I guess their level is reasonable for having a good fight.
Rashad is fighting Jon Jones, who has shown sharp ground game against Rampage and Lyoto on his last fights…
Jon Jones is very talented. I guess it`s a hard fight for anyone whether it`s on the middleweight, on the light heavyweight or even on the heavyweight. He really knows how to use Jiu-Jitsu techniques mixed with MMA techniques, more precisely MMA techniques that really hurt, like knees, elbows, ground and pound. He`s tall, very tall, We`re working on his game, which is very efficient.
How do you see this fight between them since they`ve trained together in the past? Did he comment some of weak point about the champion`s game?
Absolutely, but I don`t think that`s that relevant because each fight is different. It`s going to be decided on the day they fight, they are in different moments now than back when they trained together.
