Jon Jones Says He Was Strong-Armed Into Alexander Gustafsson Rematch
Posted by Jeremy Thomas on 06.16.2014



Jon Jones claims that he was "bullied" into a rematch with Alexander Gustafsson. Jones appeared on the MMA Hour (via MMA Fighting) and said that he wasn't aware he would be facing Gustafsson until he read about it online.

"I just kind of identified it with being a like strong-arm technique on their part, trying to get fans pushing for a fight and prematurely announcing a fight," Jones said. "It's not that I haven't signed a contract, I hadn't even heard that date before. I thought it was unprofessional, I thought it was a bullying technique, bully style, I don't know what it was. But it is what it is."

Jones has since signed onto the fight, which will take place on September 27th at an as-yet-unannounced location.

As to his relationship with the UFC, Jones said, "I think we are in a very healthy spot. We actually talked about being in contact more often and things like that. Instead of going through my managers to talk about things, we'll have a more open line of communication. I'm really happy about that. I feel like we're in a very open and honest place right now."
