“If there is someone who can defeat the Jon Jones, it's Poatan. Wherever it touches, no more hair grows. Poatan has a movie story and I would like to see that story being closed against possibly the greatest athlete of all time: Jon Jones. A dangerous, difficult fight, but if there is someone who can defeat the Jon Jones, it’s Poatan”, concluded Moicano, endorsing the narrative of an epic confrontation between the two fighters.
