UFC heavyweight number one Cyril Gan, who will share the octagon with Jon Jones this weekend, commented on the words of the American, who was critical of his fighting skills, and also stated that the Frenchman was being led to the top of the division by convenient opponents.
“It doesn’t matter to me what he says,” the Frenchman told TMZ Sports. “I don’t play these trash talk games. I know that sometimes guys try to get in the head of their opponents, but in the case of me it is impossible. I’m going to put on a show, do my job, because I love the sport itself. I love sports, and I’m going to do only them. That’s all”
“I don’t know why John wants to talk so much. We’re going to do it, our fists will be talking very soon, so you don’t have to talk, my friend! There is work waiting for us in the cage, and we will see how it all ends.”
Recall that the fight between Jon Jones and Cyril Gan, who will have the vacant UFC heavyweight championship belt at stake, will headline the UFC 285 tournament in Las Vegas on March 4.
