I don't really see too many similarities between the two to be honest. Like others have said they are both religious, both confident, and both black, but so are a ton of other fighters.
I agree with the above. The main similarity is just that they are new
champions who have recently beat a lot of the established guys in their divisions that had a lot of fans. beating peoples favorite fighters isn't a way to win people over, but hey it's gotta be done.
Personally I think Jon Jones kicks all kinds off ass and I can't wait to see what he will do next. Guy is just a machine.
As for the whole mentioning god when you win debate I personally don't like it, but to call me a bigot? I think that goes too far. I have no problem with it, just a strong belief in god is not something I respect. My extremely strong disbelief in god makes me feel that way. When I find qualities in a fighter that I can relate too it makes me like them more. When I find out things about a fighter I can't relate too it makes it harder to relate.

I used to think you genuinely were racist. I used to feel for sorry for you that you had such a narrow minded and hateful few of the world. Now i'm starting to realize you are just a forum troll and racism is your MO.
I wish I could be a mod for a day. There is nothing I would love more than to send you on a vacation.
