    Speaking on Submission Radio, JacksonWink MMA head coach Mike Winkeljohn alluded to this fact, saying Jones was actually injured heading into the fight.

    "I'll share with you [that] a couple nights before the fight, yeah, he couldn't lift his arm -- he had hurt it wrestling," Winkeljohn said. "He wrestled a little too hard with his partner, maybe a lack of warm-ups. I'm not sure, but it was kind of scary.

    "It was one of those situations where when I was warming him up I had asked the coaches and they had agreed. They were ahead of me on this, that we shouldn't be doing a lot of wrestling because I didn't want Jon to have to underhook and lift with his one arm because that could potentially cause it to be hurt again and mess his mindset up. I wanted to keep that out of it hopefully so that way if it got re-injured during the fight, the adrenaline would take over. It was kind of scary, [and] nobody knew about it. There was an injury behind the scenes.

    "He basically didn't say anything other than that he's fighting," Winkeljohn said. "He didn't say anything about it. Let me put it that way. No matter how much it hurt, if it was tingling, if it felt weak, Jon didn't say anything. He just went and fought. That's why Jon Jones is the champion. He has that mindset."

    Isn't this the same guy that said Holly was going easy on all her opponents until the Ronda fight and didn't want to show her full power?

    So Jones didn't complain about any pain or inability to use it, didn't have any trouble fighting with it, was so serious that nobody even noticed or knew about it, but somehow Winklejohn just feels like he was probably injured?
