I`ve got to agree with limba on this one. Sure, all the media attention seems great, as it gives all the salivating Jon Jones nuthuggers something to feed on...BUT, when you take actual fans, they see the reality of the situation. This is not a good scenario leading up to the fight. Look at the major gap in how many appearances, and how much time is being devoted to the media by both fighters. The unfortunate part too, is Jones seems to be eating it up, which could be devistating. Hell, even look at the presser...Jones seemed more focused on feeding the hype train, and shining for the camera than he did on the actual fight just days away. Whereas Shogun looked like he was just waiting to go straight back to the gym. I guess we`ll see but, the promotion and the hype around this seems to be demanding most of Jones`attention, when he should be training, and letting the hype create itself when the cage door closes.
