Matyushenko Carefully Preparing For An Explosive Jones, Forced To Be Creative At ‘UFC On Versus 2’

Vladimir Matyushenko understands the difficult task ahead of him as he prepares for the biggest test in his mixed martial arts career.  The former IFL light heavyweight champion admits that Jones can be very dangerous wherever the fight is taken, but that’s just forcing him to train extra harder.  “The Janitor” feels sharper than ever coming into his “UFC on Versus 2” main event fight and plans to be a bit more creative in the octagon.

From Vladimir Matyushenko:

“He is a pretty different guy and he’s difficult to prepare for. He doesn’t have one main style. His style changes all the time. He changes his stance, he has a long reach and is very explosive. I haven’t really fought anybody like him. But it makes it interesting. It’s making me prepare carefully for the fight and he’s making me bring a bit more creativity into it. Obviously I can’t make my reach longer, but I can come into the fight in the best shape of my life. I had great partners to train with and I’m sharper than ever.”
