JONES BROTHERS SEEK TO REBOUND IN PXC 42

Brothers Trevin and Tyrone Jones are looking to make a strong return in PXC 42 as the brothers have not been able to get a victory while fighting on the same fight card.

Mixed Martial Arts is not considered a team sport, but a solid “team” or training partners often take fighters to new and often better levels.

The same can be seen between MMA brothers Trevin (23 years old) and Tyrone Jones (27 years old) who will be fighting on the same fight card in February’s PXC 42. The brothers have been on the same fight card just twice before where neither of the brothers were able to get a victory.

“We’ve been having a bad luck streak and both of those losses were on us. We’ve won on different cards, but we’ve failed to win on the same card. This is our third time and the third time is a charm and I have a pretty good feeling we’re going to win our fights. We train really hard and we put in our all,” said Trevin.

Their most recent was PXC 40 where Trevin was submitted by Alvin Cacdac and Tyrone loss to Chuji Kato by unanimous decision. Both of the Jones’ are hungry for a win and are feeling confident that this fight card will be different as Trevin faces off against rising talent Ricky Camp while Tyrone will square off with Josh Muna, who is coming off an impressive KO victory.

“I’ve been preparing better than ever. Everything gets hard and it only makes you better. I’m looking to push the pace and perform at my best. I’ve never performed at my best yet so we’ll see how the fight goes,” said Trevin on preparing for Camp.

“I’ve been working a lot on takedown defense. The only thing [Muna] has against me is his takedowns, that’s all he has on me. If he can’t take me down then he can’t win the fight,” said Tyrone on what he’s been focusing more on training.

Trevin, the younger of the two, has been involved with MMA the longest and has a professional record of 3-3. Tyrone is 2-3 and says that his younger brother was the one who got him into the sport.

“He has been doing this before me and he is my motivation. What I mean when I say motivation, I mean we’re both going to come out with a W,” said Tyrone.

Tyrone is set to fight before Trevin which could make it difficult for the latter to focus, but Trevin is confident in his brothers ability and will trust Tyrone can handle his own.

“I’m not going to be too focused on [Tyrone’s] fight. He has an opponent I know he can beat, which doesn’t mean anything, and I have a very tough fight in front of me myself. I’ll be there for him, but we did our part in the gym and it’s time for us to mentally get ready for our own battles,” said Trevin.

Though a win has avoided the Jones’ brothers in the past two fight cards, Tyrone feels that being on the same card helps their chances of winning and that everything they do is connected.

“We do everything together as a team; one unit. We are going to go out there strong and perform and come back and party strong,” said Tyrone.

The Jones’ fighting for a win will be one of the many unfolding stories in a PXC 42 fight card that features “can’t miss” fights throughout the entire line up Friday night.
