Jon Jones responds to critics: 'It’s my career, not yours'

A day after UFC President Dana White publicly announced on UFC.com that light heavyweight champion Jon Jones is requesting to fight Daniel Cormier rather than Alexander Gustafsson, Jones posted a video response on his Instagram account before quickly deleting it, although a rip of the video can be seen above.

Gustafsson, meanwhile, took to Facebook to publicly callout the champion.

"Jon 'Bones' Jones, be a man, be a champ and sign that bout agreement and stop running," Gustafsson wrote. "Keep in mind that after I beat you and become the champ I might be doing the same to you when you chase me for a rematch, as a revenge for not accepting my challenge.

"Sooner or later you will have to face me, just make it sooner! The fans wants this fight, UFC wants this fight and I want this fight, and I damn deserve it."
