Paul Bradley Lashes Out At Charlie Brenneman Over Complaints About Jon Jones - Bloody Elbow
Charlie Brenneman, a fairly charismatic fellow, has been in the press lately after he's been openly critical of Jon Jones' decision to not fight Chael Sonnen at UFC 151. He took to twitter, not allowing his voice to go unheard, repeatedly and deliberately blaming Jon Jones for him not having a fight this Saturday. |
Well, now it appears the tables have turned. Paul Bradley, a TUF alum and UFC welterweight, has recently opened his mouth about the situation. Here's what he had to say to "the Spaniard" on twitter:
With Bradley putting his word in, it makes the situation a little different to look at, with Brenneman coming off looking like a hypocrite. The fight in question was supposed to go down at UFC on Versus 4, when Brenneman's original opponent, TJ Grant, had to pull out of his fight. According to Bradley, he was offered as a replacement, but Charlie turned down the fight. However, Brenneman did end up picking up his most significant win to date, defeating Rick Story at the event, so the situation is fairly different from Jones'. Even so, if a guy is complaining about someone turning down fights on short notice, when he has done so himself, it doesn't end up making him look good. We'll see if this twitter beef goes anywhere, and maybe we'll get a small grudge match.

To clarify, i did turn down a fight once. Reason, it was out of my wt class. Two days later, i fought rick story.
Nothing in all the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity.
