UFC heavyweight champ Jon Jones just recently had a humbling experience on the mats while training with jiu-jitsu professional Gordon Ryan. Despite his credibility as one of the best combined martial artists of perpetuity, Jones confessed that Ryan served him a “big hot piece of simple pie.” The experience left Jones with combined feelings and trouble sleeping.
Jones, with a record of 27-1 with one no-contest, has actually beat numerous MMA legends throughout his profession, consisting of Mauricio ‘Shogun’ Rua, Lyoto Machida, and Daniel Cormier. Meanwhile, Ryan is thought about one of the very best submission grapplers on the planet, with several jiu-jitsu world champions to his name.
Currently, Jones is getting ready for his very first heavyweight title defense against previous champ Stipe Miocic at UFC 295. Ryan is helping Jones in enhancing his ground video game for the upcoming bout. Despite being preferred at first, the betting odds have actually moved in favor of Miocic as the fight draws nearer. Jones is now a -350 preferred, while Miocic is the +310 underdog.
Many think about Miocic to be the best heavyweight champ in UFC history.
