Jon Jones Talks Injury, Sends Message To Haters And Doubters
After an injury forced him out of his first UFC Light Heavyweight title defense against Rashad Evans at UFC 133, Jon Jones took to his Twitter account to discuss his thoughts on pulling out of the fight and sent a message to anyone that feels he was scared of Evans, who will now face Phil Davis:
"I'm a young athlete with years of competition ahead of me, addressing all small Injuries will play a huge role in me having a long, successful and healthy career
I'd like to thank all my friends and supporters for their patience and understanding
For the few that are accusing me of dodging a fight, remember God has not given me the spirit of fear but of power, love and a sound mind"
