Bones Ready For 152

(WBNG Binghamton)

It's hardly just another weekend for the Jones family.
On primetime national television Sunday, Arthur's Ravens will host Chandler's Patriots in a rematch of last season's AFC championship game.
And that comes after the big event of the weekend.

That is of course the title defense of middle brother Jon in UFC 152.
After a cancelled fight, and some controversy about who his next opponent would be, Jon has had a few weeks to get ready to face Vitor Belfort, a former light heavy weight champ himself.
And Jonny Bones' preparation has been about the mental side as much as the physical.

" By the time I fight I feel I know my opponent as well as I know myself. I know my opponent's ambition, I know his mental state I know how confident they're feeling by how they're talking. I'm a person who thrives off of being prepared."

UFC 152 is in Toronto this weekend.
We also visited Jon's parents in Endicott who are now on their way to Baltimore. They'll fly to Toronto for UFC 152, and then Sunday morning fly back to Baltimore for the Sunday night football game squaring off sons Arthur and Chandler.
