There is nothing that jones is doing that is any different from couture/gsp.The only difference is that latter have age/experience and are better actors.Yet the fans refuse to eat up his holier than thou man of the ppl attitude.Why? its because unlike with couture/gsp these fans cant identify with jones.They see the images/narrative the media plays out for ppl that look like him and refuse to buy into what hes selling..

The whole chael sonnen phenomenon which was built off the foundation of xenophobia, crass remarks and racism really exposed the true identity of mma fans
Proof that huffing glue is bad for you.

Am I the only one who misses ol kreed when he's gone?

When he doesn't post I get worried that he might have escaped whitey's boot heel. Overcome his burdens. Made something of himself.






Nahhhhh... still same ol kreed

I dont necessarily want to demonize Nike here for sponsoring a drunk driver, since they are obviously picking him because hes going to be extremely successful (already is currently) and has the chance of being very popular as well. I do however dislike people who buy shoes/products based on an athletes image, I just think its silly. I will never see someone like Jones as a role model or worth looking up to. Someone like Rich Franklin is the epitome of the American dream and worthy of such admiration.
