It might take a while, but more people for good and bad will start watching Jon Jones' fights now, and if he continues to perform, that hate will eventually fade away.
I think the reason LeBron's hate died down is because the Heat got humbled when they lost to Dallas, and LeBron flipped the switch last season and showed he was all business, ie stopping Chalmers from celebrating early against OKC.

Maybe if Jones loses, his hate will die down.

Has a 205er called Jon Jones out yet?

A lot of quiet light heavyweights in the world tonight.

Well Shogun and Gustafsson have been weirdly quiet... Zuffa probably asked both after they asked Machida?

Such was my excitement that some of my brain fell out of my ear. Not to worry. All better now.

Still... I'm completely chuffed that Lyoto is fighting for the belt in a few weeks.

Yay.
