Tweet of the Day: Jon Jones mocks main event bout between Ryan Bader and Ovince Saint Preux

Our (Deleted) Tweet of the Day comes from Jon Jones, as he was watching the UFC Fight Night: Bader vs. OSP bout.

It's another one of those deleted tweets that Jon Jones likes to do. The UFC champ was watching two fighters in his division 'Maine' Event a Fox Sports show, and Jones didn't seem all too pleased with what he saw. Ryan Bader took on Ovince Saint Preux, and while it wasn't exactly a barn burner, Jones took to social media to express his displeasure.

The tweet has since been deleted, but as with the internet, nothing ever stays that way. Here's a screen grab:

Despite what the champ may think, Bader won the fight by unanimous decision with the scores 48-47, and 49-46 twice. It's his third straight victory for the top ranked light heavyweight, with his last loss coming to Glover Teixeira in 2013.
