Craig Jones is renowned within the MMA community as the esteemed grappling coach of Alexander Volkanovski and Israel Adesanya. He is not only celebrated for his martial arts skills but also for his humor and penchant for controversy.
Recently, Jones captivated social media with a video posted on his Instagram account. It showcased a rather unconventional gender reveal event that stirred up quite a storm.
In the video, Jones discloses his undisclosed location in Southeast Asia. Jones then introduces a group of individuals, presumably Thai women or ladyboys. Each of them is holding a balloon. The twist lies in Jones bursting the balloons to unveil their gender.
He captioned the video: “The only gender reveal test that matters.”
In the funny video, Jones used a pin to disclose the gender of the women or ladyboys who had come forward with balloons. As the video unfolds, the first four reveals consist of two women followed by two ladyboys. After that, a ladyboy and a woman came up.
The seventh person then emerged, but Jones brought her to his bedroom without popping the balloon. But the guy filming the video went ahead and popped the balloon, exposing it to be a ladyboy.
The video quickly gained viral traction, spreading like wildfire across various social media platforms.
Jones is well-known for making humorous comments regarding sexuality and sex. He became popular for wearing a t-shirt that said, ‘Jiu-Jitsu is gay.’ Additionally, he referred to Alexander Volkanovski’s head coach Joe Lopez as a ‘gay version of Mr. Miyagi’ on their podcast.
Jones hosts a humorous podcast called El Segundo on YouTube, where viewers may hear his banter with guests.
A number of MMA stars, veterans and referees had something to say about the video:
