Jon "Bones" Jones has gone full heel.
A lot has been made about how the reigning UFC light heavyweight champion is "ducking" a rematch with Alexander Gustafsson. Gustafsson gave Bones one of the hardest fights of his life in September 2013, leaving the champion battered and bruised. Bones won in a very controversial unanimous decision, and a rematch has been expected and anticipated ever since.
Yet here we are, with no date set and no contract signed.
Naturally, fans have been quick to accuse Jones of "ducking," and they may be right. Jones, however, responds to that claim in the above video. Saying that he wants a match against the rapidly ascending Daniel Cormier, he does not feel that the ducking argument holds water.
His response isn't exactly kind, either.
Note: Jones deleted the video on his Instagram account shortly after posting.
