Craig Jones is never shy to share his opinion… And, well, he recently shared his opinion about motivational quotes that some BJJ practitioners share via their social media.
And no, it’s not a favorable one.
Here’s what he had to say:
That is literally the gayest thing we have to battle every day in this sport.
You’re a 30-year-old I.T. worker with three kids. You’re not a member of the Gracie family. Please stop saying that.
Every single time I meet someone, it’s a big move for me to follow another Jiu-Jitsu athlete.
And I think: “F*ck, this guy’s pretty cool.” [So I follow him.]
And then, out of nowhere, they’ll post a reel from an alpha motivational Instagram page.
Jones argued that this is proof that BJJ doesn’t destroy ego.
You go, holy f*ck, these are some of the dumbest human human beings I’ve ever met.
Like, athletes aren’t smart. The Jiu-Jitsu guys might be the dumbest of athletes.
And really, you guys [people watching the video] should take this as inspiration.
Follow these guys on Instagram, which you probably already do. You’re going to see this s*it they post.
Take a look at the Instagram post, taken from the full El Segundo Podcast episode, where Jones talks about the topic:
