Default Jon Jones: "People like Matt Mitrione are scumbags."

Well, he just HAD to weigh in...after the story had died down, of course. Two things struck me. First, he bad-mouths Mitrione for bad-mouthing someone else. Pot, meet kettle. Second, his tortured statement never uses a gender pronoun. He may as well have said "it".

I guess he's a sensitive butterfly.



I think he'll probably win Saturday but Chael's definitely got him rattled!

I've just seen some quotes pulled out of context, but nothing else. Was this off-the-cuff or was he asked about it by a journalist? Honestly, lazier MMA writers know that slapping "_____ said THIS about Fallon Fox!!!!!!" is gauranteed clicks, so I wouldn't be surprised if the interviewer wasn't able to come up with anything to about the fight & just took this route instead.

Also, the issue just got re-stirred yesterday because Mitrione's already off suspension & signed to fight Brendan Schaub in a couple months. That's why it was "relevant" to bring it up again.

i don't know if scumbag is the right term, but jones is right about mitrione ... matt coulda just said that he feels fox doesn't belong in wmma because of her genetic make-up .. but i guess he has the nickname meathead for a reason ..
