Not many will call it strictly like they see it, but former UFC champion and current Inside MMA co-host Bas Rutten has never pulled punches, whether it be inside of the cage or out. And he didn’t pull any punches in his recent comments about UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones.
Jones was heavily criticized following his recent victory over Glover Teixeira for reaching out with an open hand, constantly keeping his fingers in Teixeira’s face. With the topic of eye pokes and how they affect fight results being a current hot topic, Rutten addressed Jones’ approach.
Rutten says it is a dirty tactic, that Jones knew exactly what he was doing. The former UFC champ, however, says Jones is still beatable.
