Must be rough to heavily dislike him, seeing as his going to mess up everyones favorite LHW's. His always seemed like an emotional guy so i'm not surprised.

Dave Meltzer always exaggerates stories, so I will take part one with a grain of salt.

Jones will eventually learn how to better conduct himself in interviews. With age will come more maturity. If he has a PR team (could be unlikely at this point) then they should be out of business.

Hey, I'm a guy who is/was a Jones fan. I say is because I'll still watch the guy fight any day... but with the recent events, it takes beyond a stretch to even attempt to support the guy.

It seems now the only people who admit to being Jones fans even have to admit he's done some "questionable" stuff to say the least lately. Then the ones with blinders on post paragraph after paragraph (as if more typing means they are correct). Even deep down they know he made a total bitch move.

If the OP was correct, it's just one more nail in the coffin for Jon Jones the person as far as I'm concerned. Jon Jones the fighter will continue to accomplish greatness.

Jones really went to Dana to ask him to stop Chael from teasing him? Really? One of the most dominate LHW's ever did this? Grow up dude.

RIP Jordan Corder. Watch over me from above brother.

Jon Jones did admit that he talked to Dana White on the phone and that Dana told him he would have to win 2-3 fights to get a title shot.

It seems pretty realistic that this is the same conversation where Jones asked him to ask Chael to quit making fun of him. And then Dana comforted him by telling him not to worry because Chael will have to fight his way to a shot and not talk his way.

Dana is a sneeky git. Saying exactly what he needs to keep Bones on side. He knows full well there are barely any interesting fights left for Jones at LHW. If Sonnen had to have 3 fights to get a shot, then Jones would also have to have 4 fights in the meantime. And who would they be against?

In my opinion, what will happen is Chael will beat Forrest convincingly in December. By then Bones would have beaten Belfort and will probably be booked to fight Machida around January. Then what? Assuming he beats Rua, then Gustaf maybe?

My money is on Chael fighting Bones around April/May next year after Chael has had one fight at LHW.

Fuk this "leaning how to conduct himself" shit. If you're a pusy, it will come out like you are a pusy. These guys are fighters, these don't need stupid PR teams etc. They speak their mind and say what they want. Jon Jones is doing just this, and because of who he is, it's coming out like he's a pusy.

The guy can fight like one of the greatest but he's no warrior.

Bingo! Show me where DW says this or where JBJ admits it. Meltzer will say anything to be heard.

Plus if this were true, I'm sure Dana would have said it during his initial Jon Jones/Greg Jackson bash fest. Meltzer is notorious for making stuff up just like any other writer in the sports industry.
