Quinton Jackson, who challenged Jon Jones for the light heavyweight title in 2011, thinks that Jones is the dirtiest fighter ever.

Although Jackson admits he felt better than ever health-wise in the fight, he thought some of Jones' tactics in the fight weren't clean.

Jackson pointed to Jones' tendency to stick his fingers out, which has caused him to accidentally poke fighters in their eyes on numerous occasions.

Jackson also recalls getting kicked in the kneecap by Jones, which he says hindered his movement for a while.

Despite the criticism surrounding Jones' fighting style, Jackson said there's no ill will toward his former foe.

Jones returns from a layoff of more than three years when he faces Ciryl Gane for the vacant heavyweight title in the UFC 285 headliner on March 4.
