Earlier today my old roommate texted me, claiming that MiddleEasy has a certain bias against Jon Jones. He stated that we only post negative Jones articles and that we never truly give him praise, or spread any Jon Jones positivity. Apparently he hasn’t seen the gigantic banner on the front page of the site that links to a post-UFC 172 article in which I praise Bones for his showing against Glover and that Daniel Cormier essentially has no chance against the UFC light heavyweight champion.
However the fact still remains that some MMA fans believe Jon Jones has a self-inflicted douche cloud (yes, douche cloud — a fine cloud of douchiness) that the champ brings upon himself. We just cover this MMA stuff — but we were the first site to discover the homophobic remarks he made on Instagram. MiddleEasy didn’t tell him to call homosexuality a ‘sin,’ although minutes after we published the article his phone was apparently hacked and(or) stolen — or both.
Now days later we have another Instagram incident, something that Jon Jones deleted from his account minutes after it was published. However this is the internet, folks — once it’s there, it’s there forever. Check out Jon Jones’ response to all the people (including Dana White) that claimed he used a blitzkrieg of eye pokes in his UFC 172 bout against Glover Teixeira.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gSLL2HCMSXU
