According to Greg Jackson…
- While talking with Sherdog, Greg Jackson gave some more details on how Jon Jones injured his knee. According to Jackson, Jones' injury came during a wrestling practice with UFC heavyweight Alistair Overeem.
"It's part of the game, it wasn't like ... somebody went for a flying kick and dislocated [something]. Somebody went for a takedown, [Jones] stepped the wrong way, twisted the wrong way and down he went. He was fighting it, and he just twisted it. And then it just popped. Alistair's maybe 240, Jon's 220. It's not like he was working with a giant moose. It was just one of those things."
