Jon Bones Jones is defending himself against accusations that he has a spy in Rampage Jackson’s camp. Writing on Twitter Tuesday, Jones addressed Jackson, taking a shot at him in the process.
“Just so you know, I’m not a person who looks for shortcuts in life,” Jones wrote to Rampage. “Unlike you, MMA is not something I do because of money.”
Jones’ tweet is a reference to Jackson who left the sport to act in The A-Team remake. He continued to defend himself to the public, adding “[MMA is] a way of life for me and I would never disrespect the integrity of that. I have way more faith in myself, as well as, respect for the art of fighting to ever stoop that low, that’s just bad karma.” Jones went on to wish Rampage a successful camp.
It’s important to note that Jackson didn’t accuse Jones of spying on him but rather his manager. But as Rampage pointed out, a manager’s actions reflects upon the fighter. Besides, that’s no excuse — if a fighter who’s so concerned with integrity knows his team is spying, wouldn’t he tell them to stop? That’s what one would figure.
