"Everybody thinks he's so good right now, and style wise, I think I'm the worst fight he could have. The way I fight is a tough match-up for him. I think it will give him more trouble than any other style. I don't think he's ever been (on his back) in a fight...I know what it's like to be on my back. He hasn't been there. That's the place to beat him. I think that's where he's not ready to be a top-level fighter yet. I'm not going to give him a lot of chances to throw me. He gets wild...The wild things he does, they work. One of these times, it's going to hurt him, like Urijah Faber; how he got caught the first time he fought Mike Brown. He can't be like that forever."
-UFC light-heavyweight Jake O' Brien (11-2) tells MMAWeekly how he believes he can beat rising undefeated prospect Jon Jones. O'Brien was once considered an exciting top prospect in his own right, winning his first eight contests via knockout including his UFC debut back in 2006. The former Division 1 wrestler from Purdue University has since gone 3-2, however, with losses to both Andrei Arlovski and Cain Velasquez. Though he defeated highly regarded contender Heath Herring, O'Brien has decided to drop to light heavyweight to face Jones with the hopes of emphasizing his substantial power and size.
