Harsh words from Jon Jones this week ahead of his UFC 165 light-heavyweight title clash with Alexander Gustafsson.
The defending champion recently went on a press tour with Gustafsson but the trip hasnâ€™t built much mutual affection. Gustafsson decided Jones was â€śfakeâ€ť while Jones doesnâ€™t rate the Swedish challenger highly.
â€śPhil Davis took his soul, took his heart, took his will to fight away in under five minutes," Jones said.Â "He tapped out with less than 10 seconds left,â€ť he said to FOX Los Angeles.
â€śI 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.
â€ś"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.
â€śIt shows me he may feel inferior somewhere in his heart and if that's in there I will draw it out of him.â€ť
