Also chiming in was Conor McGregor's coach John Kavanagh, who used Jones being pulled as an opportunity to gripe about McGregor's absence from the card.
I wonder if there's any regret taking him off the card over a press conference now? 🤔💉💉🚫🚫— Coach Kavanagh (@John_Kavanagh) July 7, 2016
Need 2wait 4 details BUT if true it's a real slap in the face to his coaches, team mates, fans & DC. Couldn't deal with someone like that.— Coach Kavanagh (@John_Kavanagh) July 7, 2016
