Why does Jon Jones start his fights by crawling around?

Is there an actual reason for it? What advantage does it give him?


Dinner time... i'll write more later lol

Discuss...

To take control of the center of the cage. His wrestling background allows him to do it.

He said after the Rampage fight that its to set up some takedown, but I think its to try to get his opponents to kick him. Almost worked last night, but it was a legal kick and Big Jon was on top of it

cuz he doesnt want to get blitzed by a striker who is fresh like rampage or vitor, i knew he would go right for the takedown to tire them out

I think he does it to make his opponents uncomfortable. Jones is crawling on the ground and even if he doesn't stay there for long, you're thinking about the fact that he seemed really focused on coming in low. When he's suddenly standing up, kicking your leg, and jabbing you from the outside - your brain's still thinking takedown.
