Anyone else watch UFC 182 on Saturday night. The main fight on the card was Jon “Bones” Jones and Daniel Cormier. Cormier lost by judge’s decision, but that wasn’t the most memorable part of the night. Unfortunately, the most memorable part of the match up didn’t even take place inside of the ring: rather all the smack talking that happened beforehand, and this classy move pulled by Jones after the match:
While I understand that neither side is without fault, and I don’t expect much in terms of courtesy from UFC fighters (not to mention in the realm of obscene gestures, this is actually pretty mild), I do feel this is a bit much. Dislike someone all you want, but at least give them some respect, if nothing else for the fact that they are willing to get into the ring with you to duke it out for a couple of rounds.
What did you all think, if you happened to watch the fight? Totally justified, or uncalled for?
Let me know- otherwise, have a great day everyone!
One response to “UFC 182: You Stay Classy, Bones”
Im not a fan of all the showboating bravado, there is a place for it and that place is called WWE.
There is no doubt about it Jones is a very talented athlete, he should do his talking in the cage and maybe just maybe the fans will start to like him.
Ps i feel the same way about the Diaz brothers.
