Bones' UFC 165 prefight interview
UFC light heavyweight champ Jon Jones is currently tied with Tito Ortiz for most consecutive title defenses in the LHW division. 'Bones' aims to break that record on Saturday with a decisive win over Alexander Gustafsson in Toronto.
"A lot of people have said I've never faced anyone like him," Jones said in his UFC 165 pre-fight interview. "The truth of the matter is: He's never faced anything close to me."
Indeed, the youngest champion in UFC history—with a 100% takedown defense still firmly intact—has been a code his fellow light heavyweights have yet to crack. If Jones has had one weakness, it's been a lack of one-punch KO power. As his interview might suggest, he aims to put this perception to rest on Saturday.
"I'm really excited to prove to people that I'm one of the best strikers in the division."
Live UFC 165 coverage begins Saturday, September 21 at 8/5pm ET/PT on FOX Sports 1, followed by the main card on PPV.
