That's crazy his sister died. Smartest guy I ever knew, full scholarship to Harvard, IQ of 183, his sister died in high school and he became a carnie and he's a complete alcoholic now.

Its funny how people say JBJ didn't have a hard life, how could you possibly know? I won't say he had it hard, or easy because it would be pretty stupid of me to make those statements, when I know nothing about JBJ on a personal level, and only know what he says to the media.

The hate some of you show for JBJ is reaching new levels, where you say things just to be spiteful and don't even care how stupid it makes you look.

His wrestling coach seemed more upset about his sister dying than Jones did.

Awesome episode. Much better than the first. I love finding out more about these guys lives.

I had heard something about Jon's sister once before but never knew she died. Hard thing to deal with for Jon and the family considering she helped them all out with a lot.

It's ridiculous that people judge Jon about him saying that you don't know what he's been through. Unless you know him on a personal level then you have absolutely no way to know what he has been through.

Also, cheers for the post OP +rep

It seemed to me that he blocked it out of his memory. I'm not sure but it seemed like he couldn't even remember a memory him and his sister had. I guess it just goes to show you everyone has different ways of coping with something that tragic.

I get like that. There's people who have passed that I don't think about a lot. Then all this sudden something pops up and reminds me of them. All this sudden you just get flooded with memories and emotions. It's pretty overwhelming. It's a weird feeling because you tell yourself that you're fine and all of this sudden everything just comes back. I definitely could relate to him at that point.

RIP Jordan Corder. Watch over me from above brother.

People hate Jon Jones because of his personality, I am one of them. I'll give him all the props in the world for his skills, but his personality is not likable.

Every fighter has haters no matter what, Jones did have a difficult childhood along with most mma fighters. Jose Aldo's life could be made into a blockbuster movie. Watch interviews,etc, Aldo has a great personality.

Watch the video of him getting his first suit, if you know the history that video would make you happy and sad at the same time.
