Wrestler/MMA Fighter Speaks Out After He & His Brother Sent Oklahoma WR To Surgery After Bar Fight (VIDEO + TWEETS)
Nothing ever goes well during a bar fight, but it could be even worse when a fight happens in a filthy restroom.
Oklahoma wide receiver Spencer Jones found this out the hard way after the redshirt senior was left with a serious injury that required surgery. A video surfaced on Twitter a few days ago showing Jones getting into a fight near the Oklahoma campus known as Campus Corner.
You can see Jones’ friend push a guy and then be on the receiving end of various punches to the face while getting slammed to the pee-soaked ground below.
After the video went viral, the guy in the beanie who was fighting the friend spoke out to clear up things:
“Just to get rid of the misconceptions, I’m the fellow in the beanie and that is my brother. We ARE NOT wrestlers at any university, we have been wrestling since we were in diapers and MMA/Cage Fighting since we were 12.
They gave us no options unfortunately. We showed restraint.”
Just another case of “It’s not the size of the dog in the fight, it’s the size of the fight in the dog.”
According to a report from OU Daily, Woodrow “Woody” Glass, an attorney hired by Jones’ family, said the receiver underwent a four-hour operation on Feb. 16 that was performed by Dr. Perry Brooks in Norman, Okla.
“Dr. Brooks came out of that surgery saying he’s extraordinarily lucky at this point, that he’s lucky he didn’t lose the eye altogether,” Glass said. “And so he was able to do some things surgically to rebuild that orbital socket and thinks everything is eventually going to come back to normal, but it’s going to take a while for him to fully recover.”
