"After watching Jon's last fight, I could just tell Chael to pull guard and he's likely to submit Jones. I don't know, I'm not going to disrespect the guy. He has an excellent overall game, incredible athlete. He's super young so he can get better in everything else. But his ground in his last fight was a little suspect. He got caught in an armbar by a guy who is not known for having great jiu-jitsu for MMA, even though Vitor's a black belt, he's not known for having great jiu-jitsu for MMA. And especially getting somebody in the submission off his back, it made things even more unbelievable.

Me judging as a technician, as an expert in jiu-jitsu, I don't think Jones has the kind of ground to handle a guy with incredible guard. I think I'm going to work on that with Chael, just work on his guard, pull guard and Chael will submit him off his back."
