"Meathead" was fined and suspended earlier this month after labeling Fox a "sick, sociopathic disgusting freak" who should be "embarrassed" for wanting to beat up women (read his verbal tirade here). His suspension lasted all of 16 days and he's now been scheduled to fight Brendan Schaub at UFC on FOX 8 this summer in Seattle.
That makes him a "terrible person," according to "Bones."
The good news is, the UFC 159 headliner can make the move up to heavyweight -- just like he's been teasing in recent months -- to settle his differences with Mitrione inside the cage. The former Ultimate Fighter (10) grad has even given him 12 months to do it.
Anything after that, according to his Twitter, makes Jones a coward.
Last time I spoke, gotNtrouble4 talking bout sum1 using hands2hurt women, guess thats a lot better than Bentleys&Telephone poles ... Ur a spoiled brat that needs 2b taught a lesson & I'm the guy2do it. Come fight me at hvywgt within 1 year or ur a coward, kid @JonnyBones
Mitrione is referring to Jones' run-in with the law back in early 2012.
The 25-year-old fight phenom plead guilty to driving while intoxicated (DWI) last June. In addition, he was fined $1000 and received a six-month suspension of his driver's license after crashing his Bentley into a utility pole in the wee hours of the morning.
See the details here.
How about it, fight fans, would Mitrione be a good introduction to the heavyweight division? Or would Jones -- based on his accomplishments thus far inside the Octagon -- have bigger fish to fry?
