Up close with Jon Jones, slams critics who call him a coward for ducking Gustafsson

MMA fighter Jon Jones published a quick 15-second video via Instagram with his phone camera right up in his grill, ranting about people calling him a coward.

The video was quickly deleted not long after it was posted, but it was already posted all over the place. In the video responded to the question of who his next fight will be against – Alexander Gustafsson or Daniel Cormier.

The UFC wants to see Jones-Gustafsson, a rematch from UFC 165 that Jones won by unanimous decision – arguably his toughest bout to date, but Jones reportedly prefers Cormier.

“Asking for an undefeated Olympic wrestler (and) Strikeforce champion makes me somehow a coward?” Jones asked. “How ’bout the fact that I beat Gustafsson already, whether you guys like how close it was or not? It’s my career, not yours.”
