Bas Rutten Clarifies Comments About Jon Jones Fighting Dirty at UFC 172
Posted by Jeremy Thomas on 05.15.2014



As you may recall, Bas Rutten made comments on AXS TV's Inside MMA where he said Jon Jones' eye pokes to Glover Teixeira were dirty fighting moves. Rutten has now taken to Facebook to clarify his comments.

You can see the whole of his comments about Jones below, in which he says that Jones knows what he's doing in fights and was too calm and calculated for this to have been a mistake, but that he doesn't believe that Jones is doing anything else illegal in fights.

Wow, some people don't listen to what I say, they just "assume". This is what I meant and you can get that from what I said on Inside MMA

Jon Jones knows exactly what he's doing when he fights, that's why he is such a great fighter. He is calculated and totally aware of what he is doing.

I said in interviews over a hundred times, that the key to be a good fighter is to be relaxed, fight the same under pressure as you do in training and you are good to go.

If Jones wouldn't have been as calm and collected I could have givin this to "oops" made a mistake.

Unless he was looking down, I said, (so he didn't know his fingers were in his eyes) he was doing it on purpose. Why else, if he's looking straight at him (I didn't check if he was looking down or up, I also said) would he put his fingers in his eyes for a couple of seconds?

Now the question was if he was a dirty fighter based on the eye pokes, to me THAT was dirty but it's not that he's doing anything else illegal.
