LAS VEGAS -- Marcus Jones tried his best, but after initially rejecting the "Big Baby" nickname Rashad Evans gave him on this season's edition of The Ultimate Fighter, the former defensive end for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers has agreed to go with it just days before he makes his UFC debut against another ex-NFL player, Matt Mitrione, on Saturday night.

FanHouse spoke to Jones at Thursday's media workout about why so many fans are drawn to him, his beef with Mitrione and why he decided to not retire from MMA following his semi-final loss to Brendan Schaub. The video interview is below.

If he's introduced tomorrow as "Big Baby" instead of "The Darkness" I'm going to be very pissed.

Unfortunately the Big Baby was born with zero chin. I hope he slaughters Mitrione.

I think "The Darkness" was better, he's not a big cry baby when he losses, but he is very black.....besides it rhymes with his name!

lol...I too prefer "big baby". It was a term of endearment on the show.

baby is good just because he is such a softy. that's not an insult. huge dude that looks like he could kill most men with his hands and he's into flowers.

i haven't made a pick on this fight...Mitrione looks like he hits really hard.
I'd actually love to see both these guys get into the UFC and get better.

Anyone else shocked that Schoonover didn't stick with "titties".

I bet it will even be his nickname when he goes back to serve, providing the men in uniform are still watching the UFC.
