UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Jon Jones has been taking a lot of heat of late over eye pokes. His habit of extending his lead arm with the hand open and fingers pointed at the face of his opponent. He has been accused by many fans that he is intentionally looking to poke opponents in the eyes in order to gain an advantage and game the fact that referees rarely penalize on the first offense of any foul.
Jones took to Instagram to send out his response, in the video above, some time last night. The video was then quickly deleted, but clearly nothing ever really deleted from the internet. This coming on the heels of Jones claiming his Instagram was hacked after offensive comments appeared on it aimed at a Swedish man.
For Jones this video is a continuation of antagonistic behavior that is quickly making him one of the more polarizing figures in the sport. It is a position that in the past has meant big dollar signs for fighters like Chael Sonnen.
