UFC: Jon Jones' deleted Instagram video addressing fans that say he's ducking Gustafsson

Tom Szczerbowski-USA TODAY Sport

UFC light heavyweight champion, Jon Jones tried to delete yet another Instagram post where he addresses fans that think he's ducking Alexander Gustafsson.

UFC light heavyweight champion, Jon Jones deletes more tweets and Instagram posts than any athlete I've seen on either social network. It's become something of a game with fans and media, a race to screen cap or rip video before he can rescind their access. It's a game he'll never win, because there are far too many dedicated folks out there that are ready to snatch and grab.

His latest ‘Now you see it, now you don't' moment is a short Instagram video he posted that addresses those that would call him scared, accusing him of ducking a rematch with Alexander Gustafsson. Since their September rock ‘em sock ‘em battle, that fight is the one fans and media alike have clamored for.

Jones has other plans, though, calling for a bout with unbeaten Top 5 contender, Daniel Cormier. Cormier and Bones have a bit of history and there is no love lost between the two. In the video, he taunts viewers with a snarky comment about his choice of opponent.

Here's the quote, in it's entirety:

Asking for an undefeated Olympic wrestler, strikeforce champion makes me somehow a coward? How about the fact that I beat Gustaffson already? Whether you guys like how close it was or not. It's my career. Not yours.

Our friends at Bleacher Report were able to snag the video before he took it down, just moments after putting it up.
