You just knew Jon Jones couldn’t help himself. By Bones Jones standards, the aftermath of UFC 232 was kind of dull. Then Michael Bisping told this story and everything was right with the MMA world again.
Bones had the strangest journey any fighter ever had in the lead up to UFC 232. Not only did Bones anger his sea of haters, every single Alexander Gustafsson fan but he also stole an entire UFC event from the city of Las Vegas. That’s next level stuff, even from MMA’s GOAT Heel.
Throughout fight week, Jones butted heads with members of the media. Bones walked out in the middle of interviews and total reporters they suck at their jobs. In 2018, people hate the media in general, so some of these moves might have gained Jones more fans than he lost. Hashtag Fake News, all caps locked Click Bait and pound the exclamation point key when they type out ‘journalism is dead’ kind of Internet folks.
You know the type. Jones fed into the narrative that the media is out to get everyone throughout the build to UFC 232. The media made Jon Jones do all the PEDs, sources say at least.
So it shouldn’t come as a surprise that Bones Jones went off on Michael Bisping during the UFC on Fox post-show for UFC 232. It’s not like Bisping isn’t an easy target for everyone. Sure Bisping loves to stir the pot whether he’s hyping a fight or conducting an interview.
The Count is a button pusher and he says Jones cursed him out off-air during the UFC 232 post-show.
Here is the Bisping vs. Jones interview in question.
