Jones: Davis took Gustafsson's soul


Jon Jones fights Alexander Gustafsson live on PPV Saturday night and told FOX Los Angeles that he thinks "The Mauler" is insecure. Gustafsson has only one loss on his record, a submission via choke to Phil Davis back in 2010. That loss, Jones believes, took Gustafsson's soul.

Phil Davis took his soul, took his heart, took his will to fight away in under five minutes," said Jones.  "He tapped out with less than 10 seconds left."

“I think he was being choked for only 2 seconds, so that showed me that he got claustrophobic in there, he was uncomfortable, basically his will to fight was over. That tells me a lot about his character and what type of heart he has.

"He's mentioned that he needs to stick and move and I think it does show about his psychology. I think stick and move is a psychology of the insecure fighter.

“It shows me he may feel inferior somewhere in his heart and if that's in there I will draw it out of him.”

I forgot about his loss to Mr. Wonderful.  This could be a walk in the park for Jon, or if he is overlooking him, continuing the trend of those who lost their belts this year: ala loBendo and Silva

I totally agree. Someone said "the best thing Floyd Mayweather did in the ring was convince the world Canelo deserved to be in there with him." Jones putting down his opponents and saying they aren't worthy doesn't make me want to spend the money to watch.  I have no input on his life choices, character, actions or any of the stuff all these threads are about. Just that he needs to sell his fights up instead of putting his opponents down.

Jon always gets the job done and is the #1 p4p fighter on the planet. Even if he is insecure on his feet, he doesn't need stand up when he can take anyone down. I used to hate on Jon but I really find it stupid now. The guy is not losing anytime soon. Cormier is the only person with a chance at 205 (if he can make the cut).
