Jon Jones labels Dan Henderson as a “one trick pony”

Quote:
In preparing for an opponent a fighter has to consider all of the threats posed by his/her adversary. However, when it comes to UFC light heavyweight champ Jon Jones’ upcoming title-defense against Dan Henderson it appears as though the 25-year old didn’t have to hit the books too hard based on the seasoned veteran’s singular attack.
“Dan Henderson’s a winner, an animal, a beast…but it’s no secret that Dan Henderson is a one-trick pony. He just has that power. Uppercut, overhand…when he touches people they go down,” said Jones in an interview with the UFC. “My objective is to not get hit at all.”
“When you put Dan Henderson against a guy who can wrestle against him, you’ve gotta throw his wrestling out the window,” he added.
While Jones plans on defusing Henderson’s trademark “H-Bomb” and any other similar strikes, the 16-1 champion believes he can inflict the sort of damage on “Hendo” he’s attempting to avoid himself.
“I feel very confident that I’m gonna be the first guy to TKO him,” explained Jones “Slowly, methodically, hitting one hit at a time until he decides his body is hurting and he wants the fight to be over. Nature will take its course.”
Jones-Henderson will meet in a little more than two weeks as the headlining tilt at UFC 151.

Not a fan but I at least realize that this is what MMA needs more of if they are going to crossover.I am sick of the vanilla stock responses especially from fighters that should start acting like larger than life champions..I dont know why its fans refuse to acknowledge this..Everything jones said was within the confines of the match at hand.Nothing about self grandioseness henderson's wife, or derogatory statement about ppl from California..

Strictly business yet this is the kind of attitude thats frowned upon? why? I dont get it

I don't care much for him but he will absolutely dominate Hendo. Finish in 2 rounds. Hope I'm wrong.

One trick pony is not an accurate observation ...If that trick connects it's more like a one trick horse.

I think some are failing to grasp what he meant by this. The one trick pony remark has nothing to do with who he beat, but by how he did it. Its true that he's a one trick pony, if he doesn't get the KO, he has nothing else going for him, at all. He has no TDD, hardly ever throws combinations and doesn't exactly have the best takedowns despite being an olympic wrestler.

Stop grasping at straws and making JBJ look like the bad guy again, what he says is nothing but true.

oh yeah I understand that, but I'm just saying he was good enough at that trick to beat those elite fighters. If Jones gets hit by this trick then he's another big name in a long list.

He does throw some combos when he gets you against the cage i think. Everybody knows to keep away from the overhand yet his dropped guys like Bisping and Shogun with it.

I'm not saying he doesn't have power, but thats still the definition of a one trick pony. Just because fighters get caught in it, doesn't mean its not what it really is.

They say the same thing about Ronda Rousey, that shes a one trick pony for arm bars.

When Hendo used to land the H-bomb in earlier fights, I thought it was very fortunate and lucky. He almost telegraphs it and doesnt set it up with the right strikes. It is basic rudimentary striking but his opponents cant seem to avoid it.
Full respect to Hendo as he has shown it isnt a lucky punch and Jones better not underestimate this supposed one trick punch. If it lands then Jones could very well be tucked into bed and put asleep.
