Michael Bisping shared two gruesome fights that resulted in severe damage for Jon Jones, needing help from his coach to wipe his own a**.
Former UFC light heavyweight champion Jones is widely regarded as the greatest mixed martial artist of all time. After becoming the youngest titleholder in the promotion (a record he holds to this day), Jones went on a dominant run that saw him dispatch several elite contenders and essentially go undefeated, bar a controversial disqualification loss to Matt Hamill. He also leads the list for the most title defenses ever at 13.
Michael Bisping shares the story of when Jon Jones couldn’t wipe his own a**
In a recent video posted on his YouTube channel, Michael Bisping shared the story of when Jon Jones needed help from his coach after his clash with Alexander Gustafsson at UFC 165 in Sep. 2013.
“Jon Jones’s coach had to wipe his a** after he fought Alexander Gustafsson at UFC 165,” said Bisping. “That is just some of the lengths we go through as mixed martial artists, some of the damage that we do to ourselves and it is not uncommon.”
“So, apparently the story goes UFC 165 when he fought Gustafsson the first time. It was a sensational fight. Both men went back and forth. It was one of the best fights of that year. Jones said he didn’t even train for that fight. He was partying, shall we say, sticking things up his nose. That’s what people say on the internet. But he showed up because he was so complacent. He was so used to winning, so used to just going through all the competition that he never really trained and he still went out there and put on a performance of his life.”
Bisping revealed it wasn’t the only time
‘The Count’ further shared another story of the time ‘Bones’ took significant damage from his fight with Quinton ‘Rampage’ Jackson at UFC 135 in Sep. 2011.
“But that’s not the only time Jon Jones has been messed up,” Bisping continued. “I remember when he fought Rampage Jackson in Denver, Colorado I was there. Afterwards, we went to a restaurant. We were having some food. I went to the toilet and then Jon Jones comes in on a wheelchair because he couldn’t even walk. He’d obviously put his heart and soul into that performance. He got the rear-naked choke to win the fight but took some damage along the way… yes, he couldn’t wipe his own a** and one time, he couldn’t even walk.”
Jon Jones will return to action after a three-year hiatus to make his heavyweight debut against Ciryl Gane for the vacant title at UFC 285 this Saturday in Las Vegas, Nevada.
