UFC 128 Results: B/R Goes Backstage With Jon Jones' Head Coaches

Ari LeVauxContributor ISeptember 29, 2016

The men behind the magic that Jon Jones displayed in the cage, mastermind Coaches Greg Jackson and Mike Winkeljohn, share some insights from the comfort of their hotel room post UFC 128.

It was a masterful performance from the young 23-year old phenom, the youngest man ever to wear UFC gold around his waist.  While Jones deserves all the accolades he is receiving, even he would admit that the men sitting before you are the ones that got him fight-ready for the biggest night in his young career. 

But they're just as quick to deflect the praise right back at the young phenom.

Of Rua's experience in the cage with Jones, Winkeljohn concluded: "He got Jones-ed."
