Jon Jones Targets Chuck Liddell And Phil Davis In The Wake Of UFC 172


UFC light-heavyweight champion Jon Jones is not only known for being a phenomenal athlete and fighter, the youngest ever champion of the promotion has also been recognized as a pretty top notch troll. Beefs with Rashad Evans, Rampage Jackson, Chael Sonnen, Daniel Cormier and Alexander Gustafsson have bought out ‘Bones’’ trash-talking alter ego.

Most recently, a semi-feud between Jones and legendary UFC hall-of-famer Chuck Liddell has broken out; ‘The Iceman’ claimed he would have ‘Knocked Jones out’ in an interview prior to UFC 172, and now Jones seems to have fired back. The top picture was posted with the tagline “talking all that trash before the fight, you mad bro?”, and was taken in the moments after Glover Teixeira’s loss.

Jones also went on to get back at his current enemy Phil Davis, who talked a bucket of trash before his fight with Anthony Johnson at 172, and failed to impress in his lopsided decision loss:

(The video came with the tag: ‘Crumble me like a cookie?’)

So much for not stooping to Davis’ level, ay Jon? The tag of ‘heel’ is certainly appealing to Jones, and he seems to fit the bill very well. Obviously beef sells tickets, maybe even of the wolf variety (?), but is there an element of reality to Jon’s jeers? Counter to that, is this actually the real Jones?

In a world where the villain is king, where do you draw the line? Realistically, Liddell will not come out of retirement to fight again, and Davis was just jolted from the title picture, so Jones’ trolling of both men is either for personal satisfaction or to build attention.

  • Lol… I dont blaming for trolling Davis.. Cause he was hyping himself like a lil bitch and got royally whooped!

  • Yeah that's just funny, nothing to be upset about. The title made me think he was looking to fight Davis or Chuck, and I was like fuck he's ducking Gus again

  • i have the little suspicion the lowkick-staff targets jon jones

    • I dont know about the staff but like 90% of the members are Jones and Dana haters. Whether they post good things or bad its all hate in the comments.

      • maybe it is because the arrogant monkey armed eye poker should take his chicken legs up to Heavyweight instead of ducking the only competition he has in LHW…
        and Dana is just a son of a bit**

        • Mwahahahah, your profile name fits like a glove. I didnt see that coming.

  • Davis had it coming and Chuck is the man but I have no problem with Jones response here either. Jones is about half as Cocky as people make him out to be and the reason he looks cocky is because they hate his vindication. I wanted Gus to beat him but Gus is being more cocky than him since their fight.

  • I have no problem with it. And it's pretty low-level as far as trash talking goes. The champ is just calling these two on their crap.

    Regarding Davis's taunts, they're understandable. He's a fighter. In terms of Liddell's remarks, as VP of the UFC he shouldn't be saying such things about any fighter, and should not be promoting or siding with any one fighter over an other. By my view his comments about beating Jones and his biased support of Teixeira, were out of line with his job.

    I thought it was kind of funny. Jones is 26 years old. Let him be a goof once and awhile. I don't understand why he can't get away with anything he says or does.

  • Ivy

    This is what happens when Rory is writing articles rather than obeying orders from Clownshoes.

  • He has a right to do what he done. You don`t just roll over when they give you grief.
    And when you get the opportunity you hit them hard and make it count.

  • Ok now I am officially a Jon Jones fan. Before I was only a fan of his style. I might even change my nickname.

  • Jones is incredible, talented, mature, tactful in his speaking to media and just an all around perfect human being……..

  • Even on Liddells best day in his prime he would be lucky if he lasted a round with Jones.

    • Whoever weaked you must realize that MMA has evolved. Every champ in 2014 would destroy the champs of 8/10 years ago.

      So you are right

      • I couldn't have said it better

  • Just i to say that Bones is a monster… No one toys with Glover like he performance of his career imo…..crazy! Who can beat this kid??

    • DG1

      Who can beat? DG1 can put him sleep to for days ha! *facepolm*

    • Alex G?
