We're all entitled to our own opinions. Jon Jones is hardly the first fighter to be called out. My opinion is that Jones is a bit of a phony who hides behind his father's profession. You'd likely disagree... all good.

yes! of couse i disagree jones is jesus!!!!!lol no

its just so strange the more hype he gets the more who go out of their way to hate. he never said he was perfect and if he did nobody would honestly take him serious. i'll be the first to say he still can be a champ even if he losses.

hey man its your opinion i cant hate it....but when jones ktfo's vera i hope he cartwheel's over vera's broken and battered hype trin as it heads to the scrap yard to be melted down and used to make promises he can keep..........sorry, had to put that in there for the lulz



JUST SCRAP

I won't lie, I was very surprised and deeply disappoint at how Bones Jones acted at the weigh ins. Completely uncalled for, imo. Everyone gets nervous but that's just not the way you go about it. Bones made himself look like a twat. As far as I know, Vera has said jack to justify Bones gettin' 'excited'. Had Vera been very offensive to him I would have welcome such an attitude, but he wasn't.

Vera's given him props and everything and has been respectful. The worst thing you can say about Vera's personality was that he had a cocky swagger when he burst onto the scene those few years ago, and that's not a big deal at all.

Hope Bones doesn't pull that crap again otherwise I won't be rooting for him in the future..

Why Do We Fall?

see I dont think he didnt anything wrong. He got in his face a bit too much there, but when Dana stepped in he regained his composure. If he would have kept on pushing vera then it would be a problem, but theres nothing wrong with getting a little overexcited as long as you dont lose control.

Worse has happened, people have been shoved at weigh ins, trash talk has occurred, fighters get flipped off, it is always going to be a part of this sport. Jon Jones just got really close to Vera. Anderson Silva gets as close as possible to his opponents.

When I read the title of the weigh-in vid I expected something out of the ordinary like a wandy show-down but then I just "that's it?". I don't see the problem here, it's a fight guys!
