Earlier last week, Jon Jones went on the record and said that most of his “haters” are “dumb”.
I’m not a Jon Jones fan, but he is absolutely correct. Most UFC fans cannot handle themselves. Anyone stupid enough to call a professional fighter’s mother a whore should at least be brave enough to say it face-to-face. Louie C.K. is right. Sending a tweet or text or message in general is easier when there’s no physical empathetic reaction involved. Too many Internet tough guys, Not enough Internet goons.
Some poor fellow who shares a similar name to Jon Jones was treated to the Jon Jones hatred just because of his name. I don’t think the fighter Jon Jones deserves that kind of verbal assault either, but seriously, morons, Bones Jones is verified account on Twitter. Do a little research.
Unfortunately, this clear example of idiocracy casts a pall on MMA fans and UFC fans in particular.
You stay classy, fight fans.
