Jon “Bones” Jones is having a bad week reputation wise.
He is being deemed responsible for the UFC”s first ever cancellation. His reputation is in shambles following the fall out from declining to fight Chael Sonnen.
Now Bloody Elbow is reporting that Jones asked UFC President Dana White to ask Sonnen to stop insulting him.
Jones was very upset after Chael began calling him out and mocking him on Twitter, going as far as to contact White and ask him to tell Chael to stop
Jones has to understand that Sonnen is that kid in class that wants all the attention. Even if Jones beat him up, he would still run his mouth.
Jon Jones made the decision that he didn’t want to proceed with UFC 151 after Dan Henderson hurt himself. Now live with that choice. You are the champion. You are the man. Jones is allowing those around him and in the media to make him sensitive.
We all know Jon Jones can fight and may be the best in the world. Regroup find another opponent and get focused. If he’s tired of hearing Chael Sonnen, then he should take a fight with him and smash him. Anything other than that he should just ignore.
