It's not his fault he's not a great public speaker or whatever, the problem is he's not learning from the feedback. Everyone does dumb stuff when they're young, whether they learn from it or not is what makes the difference.

Jones is doing well he's very successful, but every time he opens his mouth it is controversial and it may affect his career at some point.

People say Rampage is a big mouth, but look at his Twitter. Last thing he tweeted was on the 10th August, 'God said a man should work with his hands' and a picture of him wrapping his hands in training, nothing since.

Jones needs to be more like that, if you're going to say something on the internet make sure it's cool, don't react to a middleweight who was forced to move up because he lost two title attempts and is blatantly trying to talk his way into a fight with you.

'Why fight you? It's a lose-lose situation for me. I lose the fight and I lose my title.' He'll regret that one.

Til then all eyes on Hendo on Sept. 1st! If he's gonna lose...push JBJ to the limits and go out in a blaze of glory! It's all I ask.

LOL

Bleachereport...


Also? DO people still get butthurt whenever Jones opens his mouth?! Daaaaaaaaaaaaamn...

I love the guy...he's brilliant when he fights. His violence and aggression in the cage are *poetry*.
He could personally flip me off, and i would still love his fights...if he continues like this.

PS: i'm still waiting for the day he will oficially switch to *the dark side*, by doing something really nasty...
Nike ruined that for me though...

\ embrace your demons Jon!!!

My 'Stranger Danger' goes off every time I see Jon Jones interviewed. There's just something fake there. I'm sorry I can't pin point it. I want to like him, but I trust my 'Stranger Danger' more. It has not killed me yet.

Jones is just not a cool guy, he's awkward. That's never going to change, and to make things even worse and more square he's religious to boot. Talk about the worst possible personality for a champion fighter.

Bunch of jones haters in here.

No jones is not an awkward speaker. He is one of the calmest speakers in the game and is SPOT ON with most of what he says.

Chael doesn't deserve a shot, he is a xenophobic idiot with a bad writer trying to talk his way to a shot. Machida DID get owned just one fight ago and it had crappy PPV numbers, gustaf and davis ARE far more intiguing and deserving like he says.

He owned Rashad in the interviews and the cage, and Chael looks like a 4 year old with ADD in his moronic twitter battles.

YOU folks are awkward whiny biased LISTENERS because he wrecked your overrated favorite fighters. Oh and he's christian and vocal about it, everyone here loves to hate christians.

Good thing he made a mistake and banged his car drunk, otherwise you people would really have nothing substantial to hate him for instead of some of the nonsense you guys try to come up with to justify your butthurt.

It's fact. He just single handedly took out an entire card without thinking about how it effects all facets around em. Do you know that most shows would go out of business. Think Barnett vs Fedor.

No, a TRT cheating douche messed up his cycle, faked an injury a WEEK before the fight (hint, people don't spar this hard this close to a fight), and got it cancelled.

Jones did the smart thing and turned down some undeserving trash talking idiot from MW as a no win fight.

You can't fake a torn mcl...your ignorance disturbs me. You have to be checked out by a UFC doctor to pull out of a fight, especially one this big. You can just go oh my knee it hurts and pull out.
