The UFC Light heavyweight Champion Jon “Bones” Jones spoke with Chad Dukes on Chad Dukes Versus The World this afternoon to promote his title fight with Daniel Cormier at UFC 182 on January 3rd, 2015. In addition to hyping his fight he also had some interesting comments about CM Punk’s impending UFC debut in 2015.
I think it’s an awesome thing for the sport, it’s gonna bring a lot of publicity. I went to my first WWE match this year and the enthusiasm and emotion on the fans faces, it was like they were watching real fighting in the UFC. I do have a respect for the influence of the WWE and the passion of the fans. I found it awesome to watch for myself and the audience. At the same time it would be a bad thing only because every day I’m at the gym watching these kids training. These guys have no money and they’re training their tails off, giving up everything to be a fighter. Living in the gym, eating turkey and peanut butter, bare minimum to chase this dream and then a superstar like him just gets to jump into the UFC just because he knows the right people and has a name. I just think it’s unfair for the people who have been working their tails off to earn this opportunity. That’s why I really hope UFC gives him a real opponent so we can watch him get knocked out.
