Jon Jones on Matt Mitrione eye poke: Travis Browne using my favorite technique!

What I find so amusing about this tweet is how closely that emoji resembles Matt Mitrione.

That said, I'm sure "Meathead" is not in a jovial mood following his technical knockout loss to Travis Browne, which took place at the UFC Fight Night 81 mixed martial arts (MMA) event last Sunday night (Jan. 17, 2015) inside TD Garden in Boston, Massachusetts.

Probably because he was poked in the eye -- twice -- which along with damage incurred against "Hapa," left him disfigured inside the cage (see the gnarly pic here). He also took a few violent punches to the back of the head, but that's neither here nor there.

As for Jones?

The former UFC light heavyweight champ has come under fire on several occasions for accidental eye pokes, to the point where promotion president Dana White had to go on record to proclaim he would try to help stop them from happening in the future.

Mission: Impossible.
