Cyril Gane confirmed that he did not train until the match was announced

Cyril Gane is one of the best fighters in the UFC. We don't have to say too much about his qualities. Gane is the main topic again, considering that in two weeks we will be watching a match between him and Jon Jones. What surprised many was Gane's admission that he did not train until the moment the fight between him and Jones was announced.

"I only train when a fight is announced. I had my fight against Tuivasa, barely trained since then, and now I’m back it since the Jones fight has been announced," Gane said for La Sueur. Cyril Gane confirmed that he is a "lazy" person and that he wants to work on it.

It seems that besides fighting, Gane has other jobs and responsibilities that he is focused on. Family is his priority. “If I look back at my career, this a regret. I love grappling but unfortunately I’m lazy, that’s the truth.

I only train when a fight is announced. I have a lot of media obligations. Professional opportunities outside of the sport. You can’t say no to all these things. I also have to give time to my family, rest well."

Jon Jones: Definitely have the knockout power that I didn’t have before

Jon Jones returns after a long break.

Jones is a UFC legend and many believe that he will experience defeat. Jones confirmed that Gane is his toughest opponent so far. "I fought many guys who were nasty on their feet. Guys with very intimidating one strike knockout power.

I feel pretty comfortable, and this is definitely not a kickboxing match. Wrestling is more than a few take downs, it’s a mentality. I’ll just leave it at that. I feel faster and more explosive. Definitely have the knockout power that I didn’t have before," Jones tweeted.
