UFC 140 Results: Erik Paulson Disappointed With Jon Jones and Frank Mir

via erikpaulson.com

Erik Paulson, noted trainer of men such as Josh Barnett, was not thrilled with what he saw from Jon Jones and Frank Mir in their wins at UFC 140. Mir snapped Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira's arm while Jon Jones choked Lyoto Machida out with a front choke.

But it wasn't the way they won that disappointed Paulson, it was what they did after they won. From Paulson's Facebook page:

A little bummed out to see Mir break Nogeras Arm and not check to see if he was ok after the Fight. Also to see Jones Drop Machita on his face after he knew that he was out! safety and Well being of your Brothers after you share sweat and blood. then don't care about their well being. leaving a statement for the next generation of fighters that do it to you someday

Both incidents have caused a minor stir with some fans. I don't know that I can fully get on board with the idea that this is some generational issue that will come back to bite these guys, but Paulson's comments represent a certain segment of fans today for sure.
