Oklahoma Sooners wide receiver/placeholder Spencer Jones learned a very valuable lesson this month during a bar bathroom fight — make sure you don’t pick a fight with the guys who have MMA training. The 6’1 Jones, a redshirt senior out of Nashville, was on the wrong side of an ass-kicking from a guy who’s clearly had some combat training.
A guy named Braden Brown claims Jones and his buddy ran into the wrong guys to mess with. “Just to get rid of the misconceptions, I’m the fellow in the beanie and that is my brother. We ARE NOT wrestlers at any university, we have been wrestling since we were in diapers and MMA/Cage Fighting since we were 12. They gave us no options unfortunately. We showed restraint,” Brown wrote on Instagram.
Jones, an academic All-Big 12 first-team member in 2020, was named the Mortell Holder of the Year for his services as a placeholder for the Sooners. Fighting is clearly not his game, even if he came up against some college bro who hadn’t been training in MMA since he was 12.
As for how he’s doing, Jones needed surgery and, according to The OU Daily, Jones’ lawyer says his client is lucky he didn’t lose an eye. “Dr. Brooks came out of that surgery saying he’s extraordinarily lucky at this point, that he’s lucky he didn’t lose the eye altogether,” Woody Glass told the student newspaper. “And so he was able to do some things surgically to rebuild that orbital socket and thinks everything is eventually going to come back to normal, but it’s going to take a while for him to fully recover.”
It appears this one is headed to civil court in the near future.
