If you were hoping that time would heal the strained relationship between former NFL players Marcus Jones and Matt Mitrione, allowing them to have a nice, gentlemanly scrap on Saturday night’s TUF 10 Finale, get ready to be disappointed. Jones still dislikes Mitrione as much as he did on the show, and considering what a kind-hearted, congenial guy "Big Baby" seems to be, that should tell us something about Mitrione’s effect on people. Just listen to him explain how he has no bad blood with Jones, but it will be a personal fight with a lot of animosity, and then see if you don’t want to punch him in the head. That guy is just not in control of what comes out of his mouth.
On a related note, the UFC doesn’t seem like they’re going to let Jones live down the nickname given to him by Rashad Evans. Though he’d like to be called "The Darkness," the UFC website isn’t obliging, even if it means adhering to a double standard. See what we mean after the jump.
UFC.com lists Jones with the nickname thrust upon him by an opposing coach on the show. Not exactly generous, but apt and somewhat humorous, so why not, right? Then there’s this:
What the hell? If Jones gets stuck with "Big Baby," why doesn’t Schoonover get stuck with "Titties"? At least then he wouldn’t risk getting a cease and desist letter from Bruce Springsteen.
