Jon Jones: Mitrione is a scumbag
UFC lightheavyweight champion Jon Jones was not shy in expressing how he felt about UFC heavyweight Matt Mitrione for his recent comments about transgender fighter Fallon Fox:
“I think he’s terrible for that,” Jones said. “It’s ridiculous. I think Fallon Fox, that’s a strong person. Despite what the person has been through in their life, that’s a strong person. I’m a fan of that person because of what they’ve gone through and what they’re willing to go through.
“People like Matt Mitrione are scumbags. He’s a scumbag. I don’t care if he’s off suspension or doesn’t fight again. He’s a ridiculous person.”
Jones said he believes in freedom of speech but that being a “decent” person should trump all.
“He needs to shut his mouth,” Jones said. “That’s how I feel about that kid. He’s scum.”
