Jackson Wink easily one of the best MMA Gyms in the world with Jon Jones leading the way and becoming a mentor now to future Bellator Light Heavyweight Champion Christian Edwards.
“It’s definitely surreal for me for sure,” Edwards told MMA Junkie on Tuesday. “I’ve been watching fights since I was 11 years old. I think it’s humbling to think that I have that kind of support from somebody so great. He invited me out. I didn’t even ask. He just invited me to his house. He said, ‘Let’s watch tape on this guy. Let’s study and let’s work some counters for this guy.’ I’m really grateful that he did that. It means a lot to me.”https://mmajunkie.usatoday.com/2020/10/bellator-249-christian-edwards-jon-jones-film-session
