“Bones” got on a number of nerves this past week with a few statements pertaining to the UFC matchmaking team’s decision to give Alexander Gustafsson an opponent outside of the Top 5, saying an “off” camp affected his performance in a hotly-contested clash with the Swede, and most recently threatening to “kill” controversial NFL lineman Richie Incognito. For awhile, Jones was doing a good job of focusing on the task at hand instead of drawing attention for questionable comments but it seems he might be back to his old ways. There’s nothing wrong with an individual wanting to speak his/her mind, but someone in Jones’ camp needs to polish up his decision making skills when it comes to what topics are worth discussing publicly and what subjects are better left for kitchen-table talk.
Welcome back to the 10-Point Must! Every week I’ll give my thoughts on ten topics from the past seven days with hopes the readership will contribute their takes as well in the Comments section. This time around, subjects range from UFC lightweight champ Anthony Pettis’ health-related woes to a Hall of Famer calling out a few peers to a quick look at this weekend’s epic lineup for UFC 167.
