Jon Jones talks trash about Phil Davis, Chuck Liddell on Instagram

Jon Jones beltJon Jones has been talking some crap ever since beating Glover Teixeira at UFC 172 in Baltimore on Saturday night.

On his Instagram account — you know, the same account where he used some homophobic terms against an Alexander Gustafsson fan — Jones posted responses to Phil Davis and Chuck Liddell, both of whom have talked some crap about him recently.

Here’s what “Mr. Wonderful” said about Jones on The MMA Hour with Ariel Helwani in March:

“But I will tell you this, I don’t dislike Jon Jones. I quite like him. I think of Jon Jones as a shortbread cookie. He’s soft, he’s sweet, but when I get my hands on him he’s going to crumble in the palm of my hand, that’s what I think about Jon Jones.”

Well Davis lost to Rumble Johnson at UFC 172, so Jones posted the following video along with the words, “Crumble me like a cookie?” to his Instagram account on Monday:

Jones also brought the high heat to Chuck Liddell, who not only said Teixeira could beat Jones, but also said he could have beaten Jones.

Jones wrote this about Liddell on Instagram: “Talking all that trash before the fight.. you mad bro?”

He also posted this picture:

Looks like Jones is really feeling himself now. Either that, or the person who’s running his Instagram account is.

Rashad Evans to Phil Davis: ‘I’m Gonna Put My Hands on You Worse Than That Dude on Those Kids at Penn State’

Although Cain Velasquez vs. Junior Dos Santos was as exciting a fight as a one-minute fight can be, there are many critics who thought the UFC’s premiere event on Fox left a lot to be desired.  The same cannot be said of the next UFC on Fox card, which will take place on Jan. 28 and features a number of big names and title fights.  Rashad Evans and Phil Davis will headline the event, with the winner having been promised a light heavyweight title shot against the winner of UFC 140’s fight between Jon Jones and Lyoto Machida.

Exciting stuff, but you can forget all that for right now.  The big news on Wednesday from the UFC on Fox press conferences was Evans’ ignorance.

“I’m going to put my hands on you worse than that dude on those kids at Penn State,” Evans said amidst a an exchange with Davis.

Stay classy, Rashad.  For the record, his comments come on a day in which more charges were filed against Sandusky and new victims accused him of forcing anal and oral sex on them.  Simply put, it’s not a joking matter at all.  And it’s certainly not a metaphor you want to use when discussing an upcoming fight.
