Jon Jones silences critics on twitter

Jon Jones took to twitter and fired a barrage of tweets aimed at Reyes and critics. He said that whenever he gets into a close fight with his opponent, some fans automatically believe that he lost the fight.

I love how whenever I have a competitive fight everyone claims the other guy won. Guess it just comes with the territory,” Jones wrote on Twitter.

Dominic out-struck me by literally 12 shots. I scored the takedowns, was the aggressor, controlled the octagon every round, had more significant strikes landed. Dom completely stopped fighting in the championship rounds and has the audacity to be mad at the judges.

Don’t be mad at the judges, be mad at Dom’s conditioning guy. Man started to give up when the water got deep and is now going around doing interviews talking about being robbed. When will these young boys start taking responsibility – that’s what’s wrong with boys these days.”

Jon Jones posted a clip on Twitter that showed ‘Bones’ evading majority of the punches thrown by Reyes in round 2. Jones showed excellent defense, making Reyes miss majority of the punches.

Dominic’s absolute best moment in round two, give me those defensive points, I’ll take that.”

At the end of the day, I got to be a part of another classic,” Jones added. “I’m over here in ABQ [Albuquerque] smiling from ear to ear. Having fights like that tickles my pickle, it makes me feel so alive. Makes me feel like a man. Especially when you display having balls the way I did, nothing but a win.” Jones concluded.
