It seems that Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) light heavyweight champion Jon Jones may have indeed gone full heel.
While he may no longer be trying to defend his name after being labeled a dirty fighter for his constant eye pokes inside the Octagon, "Bones" finds himself in the center of more drama. This time, the 205-pound champion has drawn the ire of fight fans and UFC President Dana White alike for refusing to sign on the dotted line to face Alexander Gustafsson.
That's because Jones wants to face Daniel Cormier instead rather than a man he's already defeated. He uploaded a video to his Instagram account to let everyone know that the moves he makes are based on what's best for his career, not yours.
"Asking for an undefeated Olympic wrestler -- a Strikeforce champion -- somehow makes me a coward? How about the fact that I beat Gustafsson already whether you guys like how close it was or not? It's my career ... not yours."
The post was immediately taken down, but not fast enough, as someone was able to snipe and post the video on YouTube.
The video is just one of several Jones has posted over the past couple of months, firing back at all of his critics for his moves in and out of the Octagon. The viral messages, however, haven't been doing the champ any favors as far as growing his fan base is concerned.
But, it's safe to say that at this point, Jones doesn't really care. Or, he could just be an amazing troll.
It's anyone's guess at this point.
