LAS VEGAS – Mason Jones just isn’t pleased with Alan Patrick.
The former Cage Warriors two-division champion desires to see Patrick get his strolling papers from the UFC after withdrawing from their bout initially scheduled for Saturday’s UFC Fight Night 196.
Jones (11-1 MMA, 1-1 UFC) and Brazil’s Patrick have been set to rematch after their first struggle in June. That bout resulted in a no contest after an unintentional eye poke from Jones. Patrick withdrew from the rematch because of COVID-19 protocols.
With Patrick’s absence, Jones took on late substitute David Onama, whom he beat in a unanimous determination. Jones is upset with Patrick and hopes he doesn’t compete within the UFC once more.
“If Alan Patrick is watching, I hope you get cut and I hope you never fight in the UFC again,” Jones informed reporters on the UFC Fight Night 196 post-fight press convention. “That man is actually – he doesn’t should struggle.
“He signed against me with no intentions to fight. He pulled out on 10 days’ (notice) and literally when he pulled he told him he’d be clear by November. The guy had no intentions to fight me. I smashed him in the first fight and he found a way out, which is my fault (due to the eye poke). And now, obviously this fight he had no intentions to fight me. I hope he gets cut.”
Jones has no downside getting rebooked towards Patrick, however he’s assured the Brazilian received’t present as much as struggle him.
“I’ll happily knock him out, but the guy just doesn’t want to turn up,” Jones mentioned. “He cost me I don’t know how much money by taking half my purse in the first fight that I dominated. And in this fight, I prepared again for the fight, they pushed me back, which cost me money, and when I managed to fight, he pulled out on the last second possible. He was still putting posts up that he was fighting five days out even though he pulled out on a 10-day notice. The guy had no intentions to fight. I just hope he gets cut.”
