    In Jones first professional fight vs. Brad Bernard Jones as part of Full Force Untamed throws a kick to the body of a downed opponent after the finish.

    The commentators observe "Jones was kind of a sore sport her, he needs to learn some cage etiquette... John Jones says his favorite fighter is Anderson Silva. He exhibited some Silva-like traits in the brief minutes we saw him tonight... but definitely not sportsmanship here tonight... I think his cocky behavior, he should leave that outside the ring".

    I am a big fan of Jones as a fighter. And no one is perfect. But I was surprised that the sort of behavior we have seen from Jones in subsequent fights in the UFC doesn't seem to be unprecedented.

    Anyone seen anything similar in his previous fights?

    I think he kept hitting his opponent until the ref told him to stop, something like that.

    its his personality bro. You havent figured itout? Hes everything a young champion in his 20's usually are. Brash/Young/cocky/

    But he has a Suit of sorts he puts on his personality when in the public eye(most people do) Jones just cant mask his to save his life everyone sees though the BS.

    I've seen it already, I remember the one announcer moaning about sportsmanship.

    Sounded like the guy who lost was his brother or something.

    I don't even like Jones and he didn't really do anything wrong...the guy was face down and he kicked him, but the ref hadn't stepped in and stopped it yet. Was it necessary? No, but it wasn't after he was waved off or anything. I think the most comical part was when the commentator said the guy hurting himself was the only reason Jones won.

    Not a Jones fan even, but come on. Dude didn't do anything wrong there at all. He kicked him to the body, the ref hadn't stopped the fight yet.

    Yeah does anyone know the story behind the commentators?

    They must have known the guy or trained with him or something. Since its a local show it'd make sense

    Sounds like the announcers confused mma with boxing and thought Jones should have stopped as soon as the guy went down. Instead of after the ref stepped in.
