By your logic, I should heap praise on Michael Vick for being such a tremendous football player, despite the fact that he hangs and drowns dogs in his spare time. And don't forget Chris Benoit and OJ Simpson, who murdered their families. They were so good at their respective crafts that I can overlook that minor detail. Saying 'I have less respect than others for Jon Jones the man' isn't the same as saying 'I have no respect for Jon Jones the fighter'. It's really not complicated.

And I disagree with your latter statement, though I'd not be surprised if a fair few did agree with you. Both are pretty sorry acts, but there's a difference between cheating on your spouse and putting yourself in a position to commit manslaughter. That there's even a dispute as to which is worse is a sorry sign of the times.
