Corey Anderson vill ha en match mot lätt-tungviktsmästaren Jon Jones, men han känner att han blir undviken. Detta efter som han är ett hot mot Jones.
Det här hade Anderson att säga via ‘MMAFighting’:
I’ve been saying it since last year when I called for the fight. He tweeted me saying, ‘You want the smoke?’ I answered back I want it right now. All of a sudden, he started dilly-dallying around my name, calling other people out. He’s avoiding me. He called me out thinking I would hesitate. I want that. I need that. I wanted that when I came here.
When you look back at UFC 181, I beat Justin Jones, and I said back then I beat a Jones, but the goal is to beat the Jones with the belt. I want it. I think he knows it’s a dangerous fight. It’s a risky fight.
Jones har de senaste dagarna berättat att han kommer att gå match mot Dominick Reyes härnäst och menar att detta är den större utmaningen.
Just finished a coaches meeting studying Dominick and Cory‘s careers. Established Dominicks definitely the more dangerous fighter. Beating his ass next 🦁

Anderson köper inte alls detta och menar att Jones all motståndare är ‘endimensionella’.
Medans Reyes har bra striking, så har han enligt Anderson inte någon styrka i brottning vilket Jones kommer att använda till sin fördel.
All these guys he fights are one-dimensional. Dominick Reyes is a great striker, but he doesn’t have the best wrestling defense. He has OK jiu-jitsu. Thiago [Santos], we knew he was a striker, but that was it. We knew Anthony Smith, his only chance was if you gas out and you let him get you down or some sh*t, or he gets you at the end.
But when you’ve got a guy like me who has the cardio, who has the striking, and has the wrestling the same or better than Jon Jones, as well as the jiu-jitsu that can match him, then it’s like, that’s a tricky fight — does he want that fight right now, or does he want to keep getting these easy wins, stack his bread and keep breaking records?
Vad tycker ni om Andersons kommentarer, har han rätt? Skulle ni hellre vilja se Jones mot Anderson eller Reyes?
