Bas Rutten Feels Jon Jones Is A Dirty Fighter

1

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

This week on Inside MMA, Bas Rutten 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.”
