Jon Jones Gives Conor McGregor Props For Handling Defeat Extremely Well (Video)


Saturday night in Las Vegas, Conor McGregor was choked out by Nate Diaz in the second round of UFC 196. The usual loud mouth fighter was humbled and handled defeat extremely well.

Jon Jones, who was present at the fight took a shot at McGregor initially on Instagram after he said this earlier in the week:

“I’m No. 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 and maybe Jon and “Mighty Mouse” (Johnson) is 10. That’s what I feel,”

On Sunday, Jon Jones changed his tune and gave Conor props for taking a gamble and moving up weight classes to fight even though he lost.

Gained even more respect for @thenotoriousmma last night.
