Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

Jones, Faber Discuss What They’d Like To Change About MMA

For the ladies, since you can’t get enough of these two. VidProps: UrijahFaber0com/YouTube

Well well well: Our boys over at WithLeather scored some sit-down time with Jon Jones and Urijah Faber, and asked both fighters what they would change about MMA. And they got some interesting answers. We’re not big on spoilers, but Jonny Bones won’t say he’s the best fighter on the planet, and he does not like your fake belts.

We’ll let them tell it:

When K-Swiss had their four-day shoot to restart their awesome Kenny Powers “MFCEO” campaign, With Leather’s Josh Zerkle was invited to check it out and spend time with the athletes supporting the California-based shoe brand. Faber and Jones sat down separately with Zerkle, among others, in a roundtable discussion last month to share their thoughts on their sport and being part of the K-Swiss campaign.

WithLeather: Bones, You took a fight for UFC 87 with just two weeks to prepare. I’d imagine you cut a few corners in your preparation there.

Jones: Yeah, it was a big move, but it was a big opportunity.

WithLeather: What do you cut out of your regimen at that point?

Jones: For the two weeks, I just did all cardio. I knew I had the technique, but I wanted to focus on not making cardio be an issue. At the time, my opponent had so many tricks with experience and technique, black belt in jujitsu. I said, “You know, if I lose, it’ll be because he’s just flat out better.” I wasn’t gonna lose because of my cardio.

WithLeather: So counterattacking…trying to match styles?

Jones: Yeah, he trained with some high-level coaches. I figured he’d be a better combatant, but I just wanted to make sure that my heart could get me through.

WithLeather: Are you the best pound-for-pound right now?

Jones: In my weight class.

WithLeather: In the world?

Jones: No, not in the world. There are so many great fighters.

Read the rest at WithLeather… but please tell us here if you are the proud owner of a UFC replica belt.  We want pictures of you with your precious, so we can compare you to Tim Sylvia forever.

i really wish people would stop saying 'pound for pound' all the time. it doesn't mean ANYTHING

cain velasquez is the best pound for pound in the sense that he has the most pounds

There is just something creepy about two half naked guys gyrating in a recreational vehicle...

Fabers chin balls are beautiful to a fault.

I wonder if Jones carries Faber around in a backpack, like Master Blaster. I hope so.
