GREG JACKSON AND CARLOS CONDIT INTERVIEW TOGETHER ON AXS TV’S ‘INSIDE MMA’
Gilbert Smith Wins Welterweight Title with Third Round Submission on ‘AXS TV FIGHTS: RESURRECTION FIGHTING ALLIANCE 26’
LOS ANGELES – June 5, 2015 – UFC welterweight Carlos Condit and his renowned trainer Greg Jackson together joined AXS TV’s INSIDE MMA tonight for an interview with series host Bas Rutten and guest host Ron Kruck, who filled in for regular host Kenny Rice. During the interview, Condit discussed who he would like to fight next following his victory at UFC Fight Night 67 while Jackson shared his thoughts on Jon Jones, who was recently suspended from the UFC and has trained with Jackson at his Albuquerque, New Mexico gym.
“I don’t have too much to comment on Jon [Jones]. We’ve kind of decided to stay off the comment stuff with him, but I’m very optimistic. I feel if he really puts his mind to it, he’s gonna have a great comeback and I’ll just leave it at that.”
