In our initial episode of Coach Gethin Radio, I interview Mason the Dragon Jones. As well as being the Cage Warrior's Lightweight World Champion, Mason has an exceptional background in professional boxing, Judo and various other arts.
My aim for this podcast was to dissect Masons thought processes and training methodology. This interview achieved this and then some. Mason offers us a deep description of his pre-fight nutrition, training regime and what he looks for in a coach.
