Jon Jones Responds to Criticisms

Earlier today I reported that Jon Jones was “ducking” his rematch with Gustafsson. You can read that article HERE.

This afternoon he took to Instagram and posted this video as his response:

IMG_1593I’m not entirely convinced he ain’t skeered. He does make a good point that this is his career and that it’s ultimately his decision. At some point though, he has to realize that he is an employee and should fall in line. I mean, if he beat Gustafsson once, why can’t he do it again? Why wouldn’t he take the easier fight if it makes the fans happy and his bosses happy?  Doesn’t make sense to me.

I guess this is a case of “better the devil you don’t know.”  I’m sure Jon Jones realizes that some people thought Gustafsson should have won their previous match.  Even if a match with Cormier seems more difficult to us, maybe we just don’t realize how hard Gustafsson hits.  It was only a matter of time before UFC had some fight drama pop.  It happens in boxing all the time, remember a few years back when everyone in the world but Mayweather and Pacquiao wanted a Mayweather vs. Pacquiao?

Do you think Jon Jones is skeerd? Let us know in the comments below.
