Anthony Smith has ripped into Jon Jones for a remark he made about his recent home invasion ordeal, which led to him defending himself and his family from an unhinged man in his early 20’s.
“Glad Anthony is OK, no way dude would have left my house walking,” Jones had commented upon hearing the news about his fellow light-heavyweight fighter.
Smith took that to be a subtle dig at the fact he’d admitted to having one of the toughest fights of his life against the intruder, who would later emerge to be Luke Haberman, a former high-school wrestling standout and football player from Nebraska.
“What a perfect moment to flex, Jon, in the middle of a disaster like that in my home,” Smith said on SiriusXM Fight Nation. “What a perfect opportunity to flex how goddamn cool you are. Just when you thought ‘that’s pretty admirable of Jon Jones to reach out well-wish me,’ then as you continue reading you’re like ‘oh that’s right, I forgot you’re still a fucking douchebag.’ It’s just his opportunity to insert himself and make sure everyone knows how cool and bad ass he is.”
“First of all, I had a worst case scenario. We get it Jon, you’re all over Twitter and Instagram with all your guns and your cool dog, but I got caught. I got caught slipping, worst case scenario. Guns weren’t close: not typical. Door was open: not typical. I don’t get what he’s getting at. It’s really easy to sit there and go ‘if that guy came to my house I would have just beat the shit out of him, I would have done this, I would have shot him.’ It’s really easy to say that until you’re caught in it and you’ve been awake for eight seconds and you’re in the middle of a goddamn pandemonium throw down in the middle of your living room with no pants on. Nobody’s ready for that shit. It’s really easy to flex on Twitter.”
