Anderson: ‘Jon Jones Isn’t The Greatest Striker’


Bellator light-heavyweight contender Corey Anderson has played down the striking ability of long-time 205lb king Jon Jones.

In an interview with Fightful, Anderson insisted Jones is seriously lacking in the striking area of his game.

“Everybody knows Jon Jones isn’t the greatest striker,” Anderson said. “Jon is a great martial artist, but he’s not a great striker. He’s not really technical with his boxing, he’s not good at defense. His defense is very lackadaisical I feel. He’s just long so he gets away with things.”
