Jon Jones: I wanted to be nervous again. I wanted to have fear again

Jon Jones talked about his move to the heavyweight division. Regardless of what the critics say, this great UFC fighter is one of the best fighters in the history of the company, if not the best. In addition to his qualities, he is known for his willingness to face anyone who stands in his way.

He discussed the fights he has had in the past. Clearly, he was no longer motivated to dominate in his division because he appeared to have lost interest in it. “I stopped studying footage as much, it started to feel more like another day at the office,” Jones said on Unlocking the Cage with Jimmy Smith, as quoted by mmafighting.com “The fear was gone.

I didn’t really fear these guys”.

Jon Jones didn't feel afraid while he was in his division. He felt that he was too dominant and that no one could stop him. It is precisely for this reason that he changed his plans in the first place.

His goal was to experience fear again, adrenaline. All the things that made him start MMA. He is aware that the situation in the heavyweight category is very dangerous. Several big names are part of the story, and Jones will try to assert his dominance.

This time, it will be much more difficult.
“I wasn’t happy with my pay, either. I’m stuck fighting guys like Reyes — who had been dreaming of fighting me, probably since college, and [he] was just relatively unknown to the general public.

I just wanted more, I wanted to be nervous again. I wanted to have fear again. I think fear is healthy, and now we’re in this position. The heavyweight division has never been scarier, and I’m glad to be in the middle of it,” Jones said.
