    Sick, let's hope he doesn't wear it to the fight, lest he get subbed early.

    What's wrong with his face lately these days? It's badly swollen. Anyway I've always wondered why MMA fighters bother training on a gi Jones and Macdonald have both never rolled with a gi on before.

    It always surprised me to hear Pettis was only a purple belt.

    Pettis is now on McGregor's level. He's catching up to the GOAT!

    Serious question. Who is Daniel Wanderley, and what has he done in the sport of BJJ?

    I'm pretty sure that was a one off presentation at a Gracie Barra, can't remember the full story but Jon doesn't roll with a gi, in fact the only time he rolls period is during the lead up to a fight.

    Fucking awesome. Just another tool for the LW GOAT belt.

    Jon's signed up at Gracie Barra New Mexico after his victory over Vitor.
    I can't say with certainty that he continues to train there, but for the Chael fight, Jones has gone on record saying he trained there to be prepared to fight off his back.

    Well deserved, I'm sure. I always like to see MMA fighters training in the gi.

    I've always felt that a belt rank doesn't matter much in cage, it matters more how well it is implemented. Like a guy can be a BB with zero sub wins in MMA or get out positioned all fight with nothing to show for it. Cage belt vs rolling belt.

    In that aspect, Pettis is a blackbelt already.

    Might as well just give him his black. MMA fighters get belts like candy. If you aren't winning major BJJ comps, then how do you really know where you stand?

    His face seems to be going down the path of Steven Seagal's as he ages
