Jackson didn’t and won’t watch GSP vs. Condit
Appearing on today’s’ (Nov. 19, 2012) edition of “The MMA Hour,” Jackson, who is at the helm of one of the most powerful combat sports gyms in the world in Jackson-Winkeljohn Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) in Albuquerque, New Mexico, explained why he didn’t even bother to order the UFC 154 pay-per-view (PPV) and why he won’t even watch a replay down the road.
“It was just a little too personal for me. I love both of those guys and it is just business and they did what they had to do, but for me, it was kind of a personal thing and it’s not something I enjoy. So, I hung out with the family and didn’t participate. A few people were asking me and I said no, it wasn’t like I was dying for play-by-play or anything like that. I got updates after it was done and everybody let me know it was good and everybody was okay and that was my main concern. Everybody was fine and it’s time to move on, I guess.”
When asked if he would watch the bout for future training purposes, Jackson had this to say:
“Nah, I don’t think so. There might be (advantages in seeing the fight) but, I know Carlos so well, I know his style so well that I probably won’t need to see the fight just because it’s already in the noggin.”
