Very pleased to hear this.

It seems like swapping has no impact on his performance, given he left Alliance for the Manuwa fight and in that time he picked up timing, striking defence/offence and power but will have impacted his wrestling game.

Going back to Alliance is going to be good for refreshing his wrestling game, but may impact on kick defence. Either way I think the way in which he's taken the approach is going to give him the best possible chance to beat Jones.

Great idea. Mostly that he's training near where the fight will take place. No need worry about jet lag or traveling etc, just focusing on filling in that next triangle on his arm.
