Jon Jones Says Dominick Reyes ‘Started to Give Up’
Jones’ tweet reads, “Dominic’s absolute best moment in round two, give me those defensive points, I’ll take that.”
The champion responds to a fans tweet, “I love how whenever I have a competitive fight everyone claims the other guy won. Guess it just comes with the territory.”
Jones’ tweet reads, “Dominic out struck me by literally 12 shots. I scored the take downs, was the aggressor, control the octagon every round, had more significant strikes landed.. Dom completely stopped fighting in the championship rounds and has the audacity to be mad at the judges.”
Jones continues, “Don’t be mad at the judges, be mad at Dom’s conditioning guy. man started to give up when the water got deep and is now going around doing interviews talking about being robbed. When will these young boys start taking responsibility that’s what’s wrong with boys these days.”
Jones tweet reads, “At the end of the day, I got to be a part of another classic. I’m over here in ABQ smiling from ear to ear. Having fights like that tickles my pickle, it makes me feel so alive. Makes me feel like a man. Especially when you display having balls the way I did, nothing but a win.”
The light heavyweight champ says, “And I know my haters are pissed, which also makes me really happy lol.”
Bones continues, “Fights like those are the ones fans never forget. What a way to make history.”
UFC 247 Was a Blessing for Bones
Jones says, “This will probably be one of the only times I defend myself about the fight. just glad it has everyone talking.”
Jones tweet reads, “I don’t think people realize how many ways this has been a blessing for me. Humbling, record-breaking, financially, a new rival, got to bring out the dog. #UFC247 is what it’s all about.”
Jones finishes his stream of posts by answering a fan’s tweet. The light heavyweight champion was told that he didn’t need to defend himself and to “rematch Reyes and set the record straight.” Bones replied, “Someone tell uncle Dana to give me a call.”
