The tweet is an example of how fake Jones is.

I have said it for a while now. He just says things that he believes will make people respect him or like him. He is VERY concerned with how he is viewed. He tries to paint his image through saying the right things. Things he doesn't mean.

He thought he was the company man when he said never to worry about drinking and driving with him, basically shitting on guys who have messed up and done it. Then guess what? He does it not long after saying that.

Now this tweet. He thought it would be good to say he will never not accept a fight. Yet he just said a few weeks ago that he didn't want Machida. Now he turned down a 185er who wasn't expecting to fight.

He is a fake. A very good fighter. But a fake. Nothing he says seems genuine...it never did. Even his trash talking sucks. A guy liek Rampage can just be himself and be funny at pressers. Jones? Jones is awkward and has no clue what to say. He just gives weird looks nto the camera with his eyebrows raised.

Everything he said in the past couple years was to improve his rep and standing with fans. Yet he is so fake that is backfired. People aren't as dumb as he must think.

He is a spectacular fighter. But he has 2 terrible attributes. Greed. and Fakeness. He wanted everyone to view him as a great christian man who would never get in trouble with the law and would turn no opponent down. Yet he wasn't able to come thru on either of those claims. It isn't like he said this stuff 5 years ago. He said he would never drive drunk a coupel weeks before he was so lit he crashed his car around a pole.

Pretty irrelevant to bring up a Tweet from 2010; people need to find better things to do. That was a much different place at a much different time. Fame can go to people's heads (obviously has here to some extent). Plenty of people have gone back on their word, ESPECIALLY in the sports business.

No one is hanging on this one tweet. But it is just another example of Bones not being who he says he is.

He didn't only tweet that but he said it in the media. He says things to get people on his side and look like the good guy. But he does others things.

No one is hanging on a tweet. It is just another thing to add to the list of hypocritical things Jones says.

He isn't who he says he is. But many people saw this a while back. Jones likes to talk a good game. But actions speak louder than words.

I am still Jones' fan.
I am not Jon Jones, i dont consider you guys Tiny Mortals. And i certainly dont consider letting you buy my shirt as "Blessing you".
Il leave that nonsense to your hero Jon Jones.

And don't worry...

I know you would die before you let those salty nut bags leave the comfort of your mouth.

Now lets do each other a favor and not get in to it with one another. I can guess your stance on the matter and iv already voiced my stance.

The funny part is that it was explained to him that Dana White said that Jon Jones is the first ufc "Champion" to turn down a fight. And Jon wasnt even stepping in on short notice. He had a full training camp to get in shape and work on his skills. It was Chael who was stepping in on "short notice".

Id like to see Jones step up 4 months before his scheduled fight in order to save an event with only 8 days notice. Which would be basically spent in the conference and media rooms. THEN! Jones can cry about being on "Short notice".

Dana white is full of shit. He has accused Tito and Anderson silva of turning down fights in the past.

As for the tweet you can say jones went against his word but to say that makes him fake is just stupid. Only a few weeks ago dana said Sonnen would not talk his way to a title shot at 205 but he did just that. Also he said UFC wont ever do freakshow fights but he signs james toney? does that make dana "fake"?


There are lots of examples of dana going back on his word just let me know if you want more.

When has he said that Anderson Silva wouldnt sign a contract that they put in front of him??? As far as i know Dana White has mentioned that "Anderson Silva" doesnt seem too interested in fighting that person. But he has never said that Anderson Silva is refusing to fight someone. ESPECIALLY when he was scheduled to fight on that date. That is something only Jon Jones has done and the only Champion that would ever do that.

Tito Ortiz has ducked Chuck and tried to fight everyone else but him. BUT when the UFC gave him the contract to fight Chuck then Tito signed it.

Also Tito isnt a good example since in the same interview Dana White goes on to say that Tito Ortiz was by FAR the hardest guy to work with and he never even pulled something like this.

There are lots of examples of dana going back on his word just let me know if you want more.

The reason Jones is fake is because of the thousand of other shit he has pulled and said. The list just grows and grows as time goes. Iv never seen someone that can constantly come off as a phony like clock work.

And everyone knows Dana White has gone back on his word. Alot of people think Dana White is a scum bag.
What is your point??? That 2 scumbags make an honest person???


And the reason i made this thread was because of the irony. The fact that everyone who is trying to defend Jones is coming up with much worse Jon Jones vilification reasons shows that you see Jones for what he really is but are in denial.

Nobody is really defending Jones. I am just saying that there are two sides of every story. He should have taken the fight and didn't; end of story. Just because he Tweeted something in 2010 when he was fighting on TV cards and is now a million-dollar UFC Champion doesn't mean that a person's instincts of what to and what not to say won't change. I hung out with him in 2010 and he was a really cool guy. Has he changed? Maybe. Fame does that to a lot of people.
