Oh my God it has NOTHING to do with racism, Jesus Christ, it has everything to do with the fact that GSP has an entire country behind him and seems far more genuine than Jones who everyone thinks is a fake and a phony.

MMA fans are far more unforgiving. If Jones loses a fight or two the community shall forget...and there goes his prestige.
For me, it doesn't matter if he loses a fight or two, I hold basketball in higher regard than fighting and I'm sure many others feel the same way. Jones could go down as the MMA GOAT and never lose a fight and still never have the impact Jordan has had. I have so much Jordan shit it's ridiculous, I'll probably get a Jones t-shirt, and maybe some shoes if they look cool but it'll most likely never even come close to the amount of Jordan brand things I own.
