December 2, 2009 by Nelo2.0 in News, TUF, UFC with 0 Comments


This Saturday night from the Palms Casino & Resort in Las Vegas, Nevada the contestants on The Ultimate Fighter will be fighting their way into the UFC inside the Octagon, but the main event also has a young talented prospect in the making as undefeated light heavyweight phenom Jon ‘Bones’ Jones takes on Matt ‘The Hammer’ Hamill in the main event who will be a stern test for the 22 year old fighter out of New York, but is taking this fight seriously and is not overlooking his opponent in the least bit either.

In a interview with Michael David Smith for MMAFanhouse.com Jones is asked on his thoughts of his opponent Matt Hamill and what he brings to the table for a fight.

“I think Matt Hamill is a very good person, I think he’s good for the sport. As far as fighting Matt Hamill, I think he has a very strong wrestling base, and he’s tough, and it’s going to be a good fight.”

Although Hamill is very tough with his wrestling base, Jones will look to counter with his own style of wrestling which he uses his Greco-Roman style with a certain flashiness to it with very innovative offensive punches and elbows to go with it all and is still learning to further better himself as he has changed camps where he is now working with MMA guru Greg Jackson in Albuquerque, New Mexico where Jones says is amazing.

“Greg is phenomenal. I had a workout where I was sparring with two of the best, Keith Jardine and Rashad Evans, and the next morning I was really tired and sore, and I wasn’t really in the mood to work out, and all he had to do was say a few simple words to me and suddenly I was ready to go. To have a person who can change your whole mindset with a few words is awesome. He’s an amazing martial artist.”

Jones who is 9-0 in his MMA career with 3 of those wins coming in the UFC has a lot of upside going in his favor, but as far as what or where he wants to be in his future in the sport he remains with what’s up ahead which is Matt Hamill.

“I’m only thinking about fighting Matt Hamill. Anything other than that just isn’t even in my mind.”

For those of you who do not know much about Jon Jones you will get to see first hand what this youngster can do starting this Saturday night at The Ultimate Fighter finale main event.
