Jon Jones on being prepared

Jon Jones has a lot of natural talent, works hard, has a great team, and is a smart fighter. However, it is not only those four attributes which make him such a special talent, it's also because he is insanely prepared for every battle. He spends hours upon hours dissecting video footage of his opponents and analyzing everything about them. That passionate approach to studying his opponent has paid off many-fold in his mixed martial arts career on route to becoming the greatest light-heavyweight in UFC history.

Jones channels the spirit of Sun Tzu, legendary military strategist and author of the Art of War and owner of this quote: Know thy self, know thy enemy. A thousand battles, a thousand victories.

"Every time I watch a fight I pick up something different. I just like to study. There's a quote that says, 'If you know yourself and you know your opponent, you shouldn't fear the results of 100 battles.' Just really being prepared gives you a lot of confidence."
-Jon Jones
