UFC Quick Quote: Jon Jones denies Rampage Jackson's spy claims


"@Rampage4real Just so you know, I'm not a person who looks for shortcuts in life. Unlike you, MMA is not something I do because of money. It's a way of life for me and I would never disrespect the integrity of that. I have way more faith in myself, as well as respect for the art of fighting to ever stoop that low, thats just bad karma. Believe me or not, I've said my part, hoping you have a safe and healthy finish to your camp. #Respect"

-- UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Jon Jones today took to Twitter to defend his good name, denying bold claims made yesterday by Quinton Jackson that "Bones" has a mole working inside the camp of "Rampage" prior to their showdown at UFC 135. Jackson insists that shortly after he fabricated a story that he injured his hand in training, UFC matchmaker Joe Silva was calling from South America to determine the validity of the "report." It's important to note that Jackson also insists that the same disloyal disciple dished secret dirt to Rashad Evans prior to their 205-pound clash at UFC 114. "Suga," for what it's worth, was quick to shoot down the accusations. Both fighters at one point shared the same camp at Jackson Winkeljohn MMA, where Jones actually still trains. Regardless, it seems as though Jackson -- who has relocated his camp to Colorado to prepare for the main event fight at the Pepsi Center in Denver on Sept. 24, 2011 -- might want to look closer at those around him before pointing fingers elsewhere. Do a little house cleaning.
