Jones: I went 80% versus Gustafsson


Without a doubt, Alexander Gustafsson gave Jon Jones the toughest challenge in his title career, taking the champion to a five round decision. Reflecting on the bout, Jones believe the fight was only so close because he didn't give his full effort:

"I went 80-percent," Jones said about the Gustafsson fight.  "I'm not making any excuses, Gustafsson did a great job in the fight, but I know I had a lot more in me.  I did some of the cardio tests that I normally do and my numbers weren't the same. 

"Me knowing that, I still went into the fight thinking well since I can't perform excellent, maybe I'll still perform really, really high and still really, really good and maybe the fight will be a little bit closer if I just put half the effort in.  I learned the lesson the hard way that you have to give full effort."

It's like anything said by anyone about JBJ is taken as truth, fight-promoting, self-psych, self-confidence, etc.When JBJ talks it's all hate on him.Hmmm.

I still want to be a Jones fan. I think he makes it hard as fuck though. He is damn good and I don't think he is a bad guy. Just clueless and has no self awareness when he talks.
