QUINTON JACKSON VS. JON JONES
"@Rampage4real Just so you know, I'm not a person who looks for shortcuts in life. Unlike you, MMA is not something I do because of money... It's a way of life for me and I would never disrespect the integrity of that... I have way more faith in myself, as well as, respect for the art of fighting to ever stoop that low, thats just bad karma... Believe me or not, I've said my part.. hoping you have a safe and healthy finish to your camp.. #Respect" -Jon Jones, I like how he added #respect, after taking a shot at him.
