On June 15, Mark Jones is in for the toughest challenge of his amateur career when he takes on Eli McGlothlin in a #1 contender fight in V3’s lightweight division. Jones is currently 8-3 and fights out of American Jiu-Jitsu in Huntsville, AL. Jones’ combative sports career started when he was a kid and took karate.
He then wrestled in high school, and after that he wanted to combine the two and found MMA. Jones earned this spot by defeating Charlie Alexander back in February in the second round via guillotine choke. Jones spoke up about his upcoming fight with McGlothlin:
What are your thoughts on your opponent, Eli McGlothlin?
Man, Eli is a monster! He always puts on a show and isn’t afraid to stay in the pocket and exchange.
How do you see this fight going?
I see this fight being very fast paced and back and forth.
Where do u feel you have the advantage in this fight?
I believe I can fight him anywhere, but my ground game is where I have an advantage.
What type of camp have you put together for this fight?
The same type as always. Hard work, well structured technique, and working a lot of striking with aggressive strikers.
What are your strengths as a fighter?
Well, I believe my hands have come a long way recently and my counter-striking is picking up. That, and my jiu-jitsu are where I feel I’m the best.
Anything else you want to add?
I just want to thank my coach, Jason Carley, AJJ, my sponsor Game Changer clothing, my amazing wife Samantha, and everyone who has helped me prepare mentally and physically for this fight.
