It appears fans and fighters are not the only individuals impressed by the poise and prowess UFC light heavyweight champ Jon Jones has exhibited thus far in his career.
UFC President Dana White shared his thoughts on the 24-year old title-holder earlier today while speaking to a group of media and enthusiastic Canadians at a press conference relating to the UFC’s December 10 stop in Toronto for UFC 140. Jones and opponent Lyoto Machida were also on hand at the proceedings.
“If Jones runs through Machida like he’s run through everyone else then the sky’s the limit for this kid,” said the exuberant executive. “I can’t even really tell you how impressed I am with him.”
Specifically, White mentioned he was not only in awe of Jones’ performances inside the Octagon but the way he’s handled himself out of it considering the amount of pressure involved and his relative youth.
