UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Jon Jones wants no part of Steven Seagal.
The bloated B-movie action star made a surprise phone call to "Bones" prior to his UFC 135 title fight opposite "Rampage" Jackson back on Sept. 24 in Denver, Colorado.
But what did he have to say? Jones details his "strange" conversation with Seagal in a recent appearance on the Jim Rome show:
"First off, you never know what people's motives are, especially with a guy who coaches Lyoto Machida. Machida is definitely someone I want to fight in my near future and I just didn't want to share my psychology with him or anything that would put me at a disadvantage in the future. It was just confusing, really, to bring in someone you don't work with at all to give you last second advice, it can actually be more detrimental than helpful. I don't know how he got my number. He was like 'Hey listen, I think you're gonna win the fight, and when I predict someone's gonna win I'm never wrong and there's some things I wanna go over with you.' It was all very strange. I don't wanna bad mouth him too bad, he had good intentions, I think. But yeah, I definitely wasn't having Steven Seagal in my corner. I could see if it was Jet Li or something, Jet Li would be pretty cool. I would definitely take that call, for sure."
Is Steven Seagal a spy for the Lyoto Machida camp? Or just a camera hog who wants to piggy back on the success of yet another UFC fighter?
Hear the complete audio, as Jones breaks it all down, after the jump.
How about it Maniacs, have we seen the last of Seagal after getting stuffed at UFC 135? Or will he be back in black (house)?
