By the Way, Jon Jones Won’t Be Having That Surgery on His Hand After All

Well, this isn’t going to help the credibility of that swagger-jackin’ Jon Jones. Bones’s manager Malki Kawa took to twitter today with a revelation that will only give more ammunition to the haters who found it a little suspicious that the UFC light-heavyweight champion postponed a fight against Rashad Evans to fix a thumb injury that “doesn’t affect [his] punching or grappling“:

I guess its time to put out the truth. @Jonnybones suffered a tear in his thumb in 2 different spots… Every dr he saw said to have surgery. We went to meet with the surgeon on wed and after he looked at @Jonnybones he thought that surgery was a bit [invasive] and bones didn’t have To have if he didn’t want to. @Jonnybones decided against surgery, and we immediately met with dana and lorenzo the next day to get his next fight scheduled.

For the record, every doctor @Jonnybones saw was a @ufc referred doctor. The very last one on the day before surgery thought against it…And to be quite frank, @Johnnybones never wanted to have surgery, the doctors advice all along was to have the procedure done. No @Jonnybones is not fighting rashad. Rashad is fighting phil davis. I’ll let you know who or when jon will fight real soon.

Do we think Jones ducked Rashad because he’s afraid of his former training partner? Of course not. Judging from the flawless beatings Jones has inflicted on guys like Mauricio Rua and Ryan Bader, that’s a ludicrous suggestion. Unfortunately, perception is reality, and Rashad can now hijack the narrative with the talking point that Jones pulled out of their fight with a fake injury, just to avoid fighting him. (Look, he’s already doing it!) At this point, turning public sentiment against Jones is probably as important to Evans as beating him in a fight. Get ready for a whole lot of mud to be slung…

    He did say he would fake an injury to get out of fighting a training partner...

    Makes you wonder is Jones said he almost finished Rashed in practice just to fuck with him. Maybe Ol' Stanky Legs finished Bones.....

    Why can't they just swap Jones for Davis and let Davis take the time off that he was planning to anyways?

    Hm, would be fun drama-wise for Evans to beat Davis now, but I like Davis to much and him too little to root for Rashad in this fight anyway.

    I know everyone likes to think of Jones as the golden boy of MMA, but he comes across as increasingly cocky every time I hear him, and this latest incident just makes him look like a fight-ducker and a pussy.

    I dont understand why Dana isnt pissed by this obvious deception and imediately re-schedueling the Jones vs. Rashad fight.

    Jon Jones is a joke. Very good fighter, but he isn't winning any fans with this sorta stuff. Can't wait to see Rashad expose Judas Jones. As for the Evans-Davis fight, it'll be exciting but I think Evans is just a bit seasoned for Davis at this point, but it will be huge tests for Davis

    Have any of you seen Jon Jones fight? Have any of you seen Rashad Evans fight? Why on God's green earth would Bones be afraid of a natural middle weight that has beaten an old washed up, half drunk Chuck? Was getting his ass handed to him by 'pillow hands' Griffin? Got 'stanky legged' by a guy who wont engage or fight? Laid on top of an out of shape Rampage who damn near beat him anyway? Come on meow, lets keep it real!

    @edhedicus You forgot to mention when he almost got TKO'd by a middlling LHW with horrendous back problems in Thiago Silva. And you're right, theres really no reason to think Jones is scared of this guy. Why can't this story just be taken at face value? He thought he needed surgery, turns out he doesn't. Can't blame a 23 year old in his athletic prime for worrying about his future. The only thing that doesn't make sense is why they don't just reschedule the Evans/Jones fight for later in the year.

    It walks like a turd, talks like a turd, is long, brown and tapered like a turd... it must be Jon Jones.

    I don't know how bad Mr. Bones thumb is, but if he says it's not that bad and he can still fight and he still ducks Rashad then he's nothing more than a bitch.

    Any Detroit people here? The only way to describe this situation is with a good ol' Drew and Mike "Hey Jonny Bones! BIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIITCH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

    No matter, they can just cancel the Rashad vs. Davis fight and get Jones vs. Rashad back in action. Rashad is the legit #1 contender so the UFC should put that fight back together.

    OK I know the entire universe hates Rashad and all, but I'm starting to feel bad for him.

    Rashad/Phil is not until August, why in the hell can they not just reschedule Phil for another fight, and have this originally as planned? It truely does seem like Bones is ducking Evans, even though he has no reason to duck him. This brings Bones' cred down just a touch right?

    rashad should get a rematch or this is bullshit, there are no contenders at 205 right now, maybe if forrest beats shogun and machida beats someone and rampage beats hamil, then maybe

    Are people really dogging rashad's wins? Jones has beat nobody. Calling him unbeatable like people have been is like calling a shark fights champ unbeatable. He beat a shogun look a like...not even close to the same shogun who faught chuck and lyoto. Who else has this cunt beat to be called unbeatable?...no #1 contenders...no former champs. Just a ring rusted champ coming off an injury. I used to be a fan of this faker.

    I'm glad the rashad-bonehead fight is off. It was going to be a yawner anyway. It takes a real piece of work to make rashad look like a sympathetic figure.
