Gustafsson: Jon Jones Is A Spoiled Brat Trapped In A Grown Man’s Body

“He’s a little brat in an adult’s body. Jones is a very immature boy in a grown man’s body.

“It is not always that a person is himself in front of the cameras, and that’s Jones. If you’re with him for a week, as I did at UFC World Press Tour … you see the way he behaves. He is a real bully.

“It’s like you spoil a kid. You just say yes, yes, everything that a kid ask for. Since there are no limits. It is all haywire. No, his behavior then … No, I’m not a fan of it if I say so.

“We would do an interview together in England. Me and Andrew (Michael) had to sit and wait for Jones was delayed. When he comes in 45 minutes late, he asks not even apologize. Neither me or to those who would do the interview.

“I am a professional and have great respect for Jones as a fighter. There are not many who can do what he has done and he deserves all the respect. But as a person, as a role model, I’m really not a fan.”

In an interview with Sweden’s, Kimura.se, UFC light-heavyweight title challenger, Alexander Gustafsson, shared his dislike for his upcoming opponent, Jon Jones.

Think there is any truth to these accusations or is Gustafsson just trying to play the mental game?
