In the aftermath of Jon Jones’ dominating fight with Chael Sonnan, I was curious about whether putting Chael on his back (“out-Chaeling Chael”) was the gameplan from the beginning. So I asked his coach, Greg Jackson. Here’s what Greg said:
“(It was) one of several game plans, you have to give Bones options so he stays creative.”
We then went on to talk about non-MMA related things, but I want to post his interesting response to one question I asked him when our discussion turned philosophical.
Me: “What ought a person do to create an interesting, meaningful life?”
Greg: “Relentlessly self-improve, give back in meaningful ways, strive to fulfill your potential in whatever pursuit you choose.”
