The one drawback is — in addition to [Henry] Cejudo and a pair different guys like [Joseph] Benavidez, he [Johnson] was not coping with guys that had been of the caliber of men that Jon Jones was going through. He was going through the elite of the elite and he by no means f****** misplaced even when he was doing coke and he wasn’t even coaching. That’s how goddamn good Jon Jones is.”
