Mitrione: Jon Jones is 'douchey'


"I think he shows a lot of douchey quality when he talks about, "Well, I'm a business man," I'm just being honest. "I'm a business man here, I got less pay-per-views for this guy so why would I want to fight him?" Dude, you want to fight him because he is probably the next best person in line. Maybe you talk about this stuff with your camp people or your manager, but you don't bitch about that or make it your main argument of why you turned down a fight or why you don't want to fight someone. That's my opinion. Overtime, I think he went from being a pretty cool guy, pretty humble, to being about as arrogant as I can handle. He's so cocky, he seems like really, so disingenuous and just blah, just not my flavor of a human being, that's all.

I even told Joe Silva, if Jon Jones is talking about going to heavyweight, I'd love to welcome Jon Jones to the heavyweight division. I'm not going to have a title anytime soon, so it's not going to be some superfight, but if you want to come play around in the heavyweight division, I'd love to try and punch you in the face. Let me be James Irvin, let me do that, cool."

Mitrione has balls and i'd love to see him rematch with Kongo after his next fight. His dismantling of Kimbo and Big Baby was fucking epic. If he can keep Kongo from taking him down in their next fight (please god let it happen), I would love to see him welcome Jon Jones to HW. DON'T BE SCARED HOMIE YUK YUK
