UFC 135: Jackson accuses Jones of spying

The camps from professional fighters can probably all use a bit of insight information concerning what the rival team is doing in order to have their fighter ready to face his opponent, and according to Quinton Jackson, there are spies from current light heavyweight champion Jon Jones on his camp who are passing information to Rampage’s future adversary at the upcoming main card of UFC 135 (to take place on September 24). Jackson’s suspicions came due to false information spread by him about an injured hand, to which he received a phone call from Joe Silva, a matchmaker for the UFC, asking about the injury, and with Silva pointing out Malki Kawa, Jones’ manager, as the one who told him about it.
