Much like trying to find someone to train with against JBJ, finding someone with his height and his reach is a difficult task.
Agreed. Vitor's been around a long time and his style is straight forward. Personally I also believe Jones doesn't think Vitor's much of a threat so he doesn't feel he needs to specialize. I think Jones is going to take Vitor down and pound him out very early in the fight.
