Ortiz: Jones is mentally weak

by Steven Marrocco | source: mmajunkie.com

Tito Ortiz said Jon Jones essentially threw him under the bus in a recent interview.

"I looked at it as he's just a weak guy," Ortiz told MMAjunkie.com. "There's a lot of minds stronger than that. It shows how he can just fold.

"Mentally, if he gets pressed and pressed during interviews, and all of a sudden he just totally turns himself around, you can't be like that, man."

Jones told MMAFighting.com that he was hurt when UFC President Dana White compared him to Ortiz when discussing the circumstances surrounding the cancellation of UFC 151, which came after he turned down a short-notice fight with Chael Sonnen and the promotion elected to scrap the entire card.

That disappointed Ortiz, who said he stood up for the light-heavyweight champ when fans trashed him for turning down the fight.

"You can't be like that," he said. "You've got to stand for the things you believe in."
