Jones spoke at length about never wanting to hurt an opponent in the ring and showed compassion towards overmatched foes on numerous occasions.He was apparently punching the ring apron screaming for the fight to be stopped when calling the Gabe Ruales-Jimmy Garcia fight,hardly the actions of a badass imo.
A badass doesn't need to say **** about being a bad ass. It doesn't mean they lack the ability to empathise with an extreme circumstance like watching a fighter slowly being killed in the ring. Whether he's a bad ass or not, Jones asking for that fight to be stopped is irrelevant in regards to his "badass-edness".
