Jones is one of the toughest dudes on the planet so if anyone deserves to be cocky its him, but i dont think he is cocky at all. He is confident but not cocky and is very respectful to the people that deserve respect.

People just trying to find flaws. I've seen it a few times that people refuse to truely rate him until he overcomes adversity in the Octagon, how is that looked upon as more favourable than wrecking everyone? Jones destroying guys like Hamill, Vera and Matyushenko, throwing them around like they were ragdolls is much more impressive than if he'd say, been badly rocked by Vera but come back and won. Jones not being under true pressure in the Octagon proves how good he is, he has absolutely destroyed some bloody talented dudes, and I see him doing the same to Bader.

Very cocky & arrogant indeed. Can't blame 'em though. He has the right to be since his skill in the cage outshines both of those traits. Sucks that Rashad has rubbed off on him.

He's very humblee, learned that after the Hamill fight. He's a very mental dude, if he didn't those things he wouldn't be as successful.

I've seen a lot of people over the course of the entire Jon Jones FTW over the entire LHW division debate call him "confident." Maybe so, but you don't say fighters aren't worth your time if you're confident (he said that exact thing about Bader initially, but retracted it when people started calling him cocky).

If you're confident, you act like Chuck Liddell and say, "He's done some good stuff, but I'm gonna test him like nobody has."(about Rashad Evans)

If you're cocky you say things like Nick Diaz, "He doesn't deserve to fight me." (about Jason Miller)

Jones said Bader didn't deserve to fight him and he wanted to fight better opponents. Jones is cocky. That's what happens when you're a high caliber fighter who's fed cans by yes men. You become cocky.

Yes.

This is a tweet from aaron simpson
I don't think jon jones has any idea what he is getting into with Bader. I hope he is up for it.

Bones replied
Didn't you lose your last 2 fights? Please don't piss me off, I actually have respect for ryan

jones has since deleted the tweet.


there was absolutely nothing simpson said to deserve a response like that.

I just might jump on the bader wagon.

I don't see whats wrong with his response, maybe he could have removed the 'piss me off' part, but Simpson questioned his ability.

Simpson had no reason to type that to begin with. He wasn't asked by a reporter his opinion of what will happen. If Simpson was asked by someone in the media what he thought of this fight, then JBJ has no right to go after him, but that tweet was unnecessary.

That's the thing though, you don't see JBJ going on his twitter and randomly saying a fighter doesn't know what hes getting into like Simpson is doing.

JBJ responds when he gets asked in a interview question, so of course you are expected to respond. Like I said, just randomly saying this is totally unnecessary.

See, this is the sort of thing that gets me. He straight up insults someone then tries to come across as a buddhist monk with the "I have respect for ryan" nonsense. He seems so fake a lot of the time, scripted responses too.
