I am sorry to revisit the life of Jones as these forums have been saturated with talk of him as of late. But amidst all the conversation, I read that Jon had gone to Brazil just over a month out from the Cormier fight. I also read he went to Russia a month out from the Gus fight. Firstly I want to know if this is true? Secondly I want to know if these aforementioned trips were discussed publicly prior to Jones actually taking them? Thirdly I want to know how many days he went for and with whom? Fourthly I want to know if anyone here has some insight on to why a fighter would take such a trip in the midst of their training camp? Is this a new strategy to take a short mental break? Is this a lack of discipline? Is this to do with promotion? or is it perhaps something more sinister? Something along the lines of test dodging..
