I'm an as**ole.
that'd be very funny, I'd like that.

I'm wondering how it'll turn out for the Jones sponsored by the UFC thing.

the thing with jones is that people who don't like it are like that not because he's selfish or thinks about money more than the rest and whatnot. I believe people hate on him because he's not honest about who he is. He plays an act but he's such a bad actor and such inexperienced in life that very few people believe it to be the truth.

Look at fighters like tito, chael and many others, they're not trying to make the fans believe they're all nice and gentle, they're just honest about who they are and what they feel and think. They don't hide it. Jones tries to hide it from others, this is why people call him fake and dishonest. that's why people hate on him.

I'm the same, I'd take a true asshole over a fake good guy any day of the week.

The sponsorship by the UFC was only temporary until another big name sponsor came along... And Nike did, so I don't believe they're sponsoring him any longer... After yesterday they aren't at least - that's for sure

This seems to make it different than what you're saying.

White was also specifically asked if this would have any impact on the UFC's sponsorship of Jones, something that made news before his last fight and led to some questioning of the appropriateness of a promotion sponsoring a fighter. Dana said that he hates the UFC sponsorships to begin with but that it was a "good question" if the actions of Jon in turning down the Sonnen fight would impact their sponsorship. He also, at one point, said that the decision to turn down the fight would significantly impact his and the promotion's relationship with the light heavyweight champion.

As for DW punishing Jones he will do something to him and probably let us know. He made Anderson come up to 205 and fight a former champion. Maybe he puts together a catch-weight fight with DC. It doesn't matter if Jones didn't break any rules he pissed off the president and like Tito before him will be punished.
