Jon Jones failed a drug take a look at just lately which compelled Dana White and the UFC to maneuver his battle towards Alexander Gustafsson from Las Vegas to Los Angeles. In order to advertise the battle, the UFC hosted one its signature press conferences. Usually, these press conferences could be fairly entertaining however yesterday turned bitter when Jones belittled a reporter for merely doing her job.
The Swedish MMA reporter requested Jones about why he failed his drug take a look at, a query that was met by boos and a fast “subsequent query” from Jones who smirked at White. She then adopted up by asking White why Jones remains to be being allowed to battle and hasn’t been suspended like different fighters. This prompted Jones to inform her “you suck” and demanded higher journalism.
Later within the press convention, Brett Okamoto from ESPN requested an identical query. This time Jones replied saying “I feel my attempting to show any kind innocence goes to be just about unattainable earlier than the battle, as a result of the controversial picture I’ve.”
The alternate between Jones and the feminine reporter prompted some outrage on Twitter with MMA reporter Ariel Helwani commenting on the state of affairs saying “that was horrible.”
Jones will battle Gustafsson tomorrow within the gentle heavyweight principal occasion.
