Bas Rutten Feels Jon Jones Is A Dirty Fighter

Following 172, many fans and some media questioned the tactics used during the Light Heavyweight Title bout between current champ and challenger Glover Teixiera.

This week on , discussed the eye pokes and knee kicks used in the bout and gave his thoughts on whether or not Jones fights dirty or not.

“He is a very calm, relaxed and methodical fighter,” Rutten said. “Because of that, I am sorry that I have to say: yes, he is a dirty fighter. Maybe he was looking down when he pushed the fingers in the eye. I didn’t check that. But he knows exactly what he is doing at any given time, and his fingers were definitely in his face. For a long time he was constantly rubbing them in the face.”
