In an interview with Ariel Helwani, former welterweight champion Tyron Woodley spoke of his current dedication and how it relates to Jon Jones.
Here’s what he had to say:
“I am best when I’m in chaos, and I had to come to grips with that. I heard Jon Jones say he didn’t train in between camps. I’m like, damn, I thought I was the only one. It was kind of my hidden secret.”
“And if you notice, Jon…not to compare myself to Jon because, in my opinion, he may be the best MMA athlete we’ve ever seen…but Jon has had so much chaos in his life outside the Octagon, but he’s managed to hone in inside the Octagon, and I’ve found that, don’t run from it. Don’t hide from it. God built you a certain way.
“And I say this time and time again, the renaissance man was a man that did a lot of things good but did no things great. But that was his ass; that ain’t me. I won’t sit on gifts. I won’t sit on gifts that God gave me. Because if you sit on them, you bury them, they get taken away,(and) somebody else do it.”Tyron Woodley speaking on The Ariel Helwani MMA Show
