yeah but that idea is really laughable.
Lets say for arguments sake that as soon as Henderson got injured the whole team got together to train Chael hoping that Dana was going to let him replace Henderson if Henderson backs out in the last minute.
(Sounds even worse when i type it all out haha)
That is still Chael training for 3 weeks compared to Jon Jones 10-12 weeks.
So Jones would still be in a boat far exceeding that of Chaels.
And yeah i agree with you completely.
Yep. I feel like Jones and his camp have done a great PR
job. From they way they've been talking it's as if Chael is some kind of super unstoppable behemoth that should strike fear into the hearts of gods. Dont get me wrong, Sonnen is a very impressive MW. He'll no doubt make a very impressive LHW... But we are talking about Jon fecking Jones here. If anybody in the UFC is an unstoppable beast it's him. The fact that he's fully coiled and ready to fight right now makes him a terrifying prospect for any fighter. Anybody thinking Chael has nothing to lose is tripping. He has to go in there and fight this beast.
I don't care about Jones training being geared towards Hendo. He's going to be sharp and ready for anything. Theres only so much training you can do on specifics without leaving yourself exposed in other areas. If Bones has not been training any TDD that makes him and Greg Jackson a pair of idiots. I refuse to believe it. How many times have we heard fighters saying they train to be prepared for absolutely anything. Jones has been training double leg defence, of that I have no doubt.
