Thiago Silva Responds To Jon Jones, Says He's A Jerk
Jon Jones was critical of Thiago Silva's antics during his bout against Brandon Vera at UFC 125 and in response, Silva has given his two cents on Jones and his place as a fighter:
This guy is a jerk. Everybodyâ€™s a professional fighter and all fights include provocations. Brandon Vera said heâ€™s break my legs, that I wasnâ€™t on his level. I donâ€™t say things, I do. You get recognized when you do things. Iâ€™m a professional fighter, but I canâ€™t always please everybody. Thereâ€™s always somebody behind the computed with a plate filled with French fries, ready to criticize you. I fight for the fans, for the money and to put my name up there. Talking is too much easy, nobody knows what goes on in your life, your trainingsâ€¦ I think I did my job. Who likes it, likes it, but you can dislike it if you want.
