In a video courtesy of UFC.com, Light Heavyweight champion Jon Jones explains his philosophy heading into his UFC 152 bout with the legendary Vitor Belfort, believing that fighting is much more of a mental game than most would believe. Instead of focusing on strength, Jones recognizes the state of mind his opponenet is in, becoming a sort of cerebral assasin.
Belfort, on the other hand, focuses on his great speed and names it a key aspect for any fighter who is to have a chance to dethrone the dominant champion that Jones is. Moving on, Demetrious Johnson and Joseph Benavidez discuss their bout for the inaugural UFC Flyweight championship belt. Rounding out the video, Michael Bisping appears to talk his usual trash while his opponent Brian Stann states that he would prefer to have his fists do the talking instead. A great preview of a card that came together with quite unforeseen circumstances.
