Sure he does part of a fighters income comes from their image and marketability and JBJ has not been the most popular fighter among the hardcore MMA fans.

He seems more like gifted athlete who would rather play video games and go shopping than a bad ass in your face fighter.

Even Anderson when pushed turns into a killer but Jones seems to be more about business and stardom then actually fighting. If he could make more money at tennis I’m sure he would quit tomorrow.

I respect his obvious fighting ability, athleticism and he DOES bring it in the octagon but is he really a fighter?

Guys like Randy, BJ Penn, Liddell, Hendo are fighters.
