Because of the eye pokes to Glover Teixeira...
Bas Rutten spoke on AXS TV's latest MMA news show about Jon Jones' win over Glover Teixeira at UFC 172 and more. Check out the highlights, and the video:
On whether Jones fought dirty in the bout: "He's a very calm, relaxed, methodical fighter, and because he is that, I have to say – I'm sorry I have to say – yes, that is a dirty fighter. Maybe when he was looking down and then pushing the fingers in the eye, maybe that happened. I didn't check that out."
On the eye pokes: "But he knows exactly what he's doing at any given time, and his fingers were definitely in [Teixeira's] face – and for a long time. He was constantly rubbing them in his face. So yeah, I have to say yes."
