UFC Quick Quote: Thiago Silva’s disrespectful actions 'bugged' Jon Jones

Silva-slap_medium

"It kind of bugged me, only because we all fight, and just losing alone is humiliating enough. It's embarrassing. If someone ever did that to me, where they would beat me like that and then drum on my back, I would be humiliated. Just absolutely humiliated. It came out afterwards that he said he slapped him to try and get him to open up, and I do believe that he was looking for an opening, but at the same time he was having a little fun, too. There's ways of looking for an opening besides playing patty cake on a guy's back."

UFC light heavyweight sensation Jon Jones tells MMAfighting.com why he was none too pleased with Thiago Silva's antics during his bout with Brandon Vera at UFC 125. "Bones" let his feelings towards Silva's actions be known through his Twitter account. Besides badly breaking "The Truth's" nose, Silva used Vera's back as bongos, handed him open-handed slaps, a loss and eventually a pink slip. What do you say, Maniacs? Were Silva's actions uncalled for? Or is Jones overreacting? Also, would you like to see this match-up should "Bones" get past Ryan Bader?
