Jon Jones Not Impress With Thiago SIlva Slapping Brandon Vera

Following UFC 125, Jon Jones wasn't too impressed with Thiago Silva's antics during his bout with Brandon Vera.

Jones took offense to Silva's slaps to the back of Vera and talked to MMAFighting about how it rubbed him the wrong way:

“It kind of bugged me, only because we all fight, and just losing alone is humiliating enough. It's embarrassing. … Think about all the people who watched those fights. All (Brandon Vera) fans, all the members at his school, all the kids that look up to him. Man, it just kind of rubbed me the wrong way. It's not something I would ever want done to me and it's not something I would ever do to someone else. … There's ways of looking for an opening besides playing pattycake on a guy's back.”
