Bas Rutten believes Jon Jones is a dirty fighter, says he “knows exactly what he is doing”
Former UFC heavyweight champion Bas Rutten was on Inside MMA, where he discussed a variety of topics including whether he considered the 205lb. champ a "dirty fighter."
"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."
Bas was also asked whether he believes Jones could be considered "unstoppable," or if he only presents that aura. Rutten replied that although Jones is continuously evolving and improving on his prior mistakes, no fighter is unbeatable.
"I think everybody can be beaten. The thing with Jon Jones is he continues to get better everytime. He learns from his mistakes and goes back to the drawing board. But everybody is stoppable."
