Jon Jones Lays Into CM Punk – ‘He’s Only Good For Making The UFC Money’

Jon Jones Lays Into CM Punk – ‘He’s Only Good For Making The UFC Money’

Jon Jones took time out from laying into Daniel Cormier to have a pop at CM Punk signing with the UFC. He only had one positive to say on the matter:

“I think it’s an awesome thing for the sport, it’s going to bring a lot of publicity,”

But went on to trash talk Punk:

“(These guys are) living in the gym, eating turkey and peanut butter, bare minimum to chase this dream, and then a superstar like (Punk) just gets to jump into the UFC just because he knows the right people and has a name,”

“I just think it’s unfair for the people who have been working their tails off to earn this opportunity. That’s why I really hope UFC gives him a real opponent, so we can watch him get knocked out.”
