I don;'t know if its me but something about jones in reccent interview etc makes him seem a little cocky. I know he is not that famous yet as he has not fought anyone that great yet, but do you think once he does he might come off as a jerk?

I don't think he's cocky or arrogant, he is very humble when he wins and the best way to see a fighters emotion is after some controversy.

Take a look at his actions and response after his DQ against Matt Hamill. He has a blemish on his record that shouldn't be there, Hamill wasn't able to continue because of a separated shoulder, not from the elbows.

He doesnt seem to cocky to me, which im sure is hard to maintain considering how damn near everyone in the MMA world is on his nuts right now and proclaiming him the next GSP/Silva type of fighter. Its gotta be hard to stay humble with that kind of talk being thrown at you all the time.

Yea, he seems kind of cocky. Not that I blame him. The ridiculous bullsh*t people are saying about him would make anyone cocky.

Nah. Only Haters think he's cocky. He's a very down to earth guy.

I don't think cockiness in a fighter is necessarily a bad thing. In fact I'd say to some degree it's a requirement.

It's the fake nice guy humble routine that I don't like.

I haven't figured Jones out yet. The Clark Kent glasses in interviews seems a bit much and I haven't forgotten that he passed on nog, a decision that a good businessman would have made more than a hungry fighter.

still... for some reason it's hard not to like the guy.

I think so too.

People like to be a dissenter just for the sake of being a contrarian. Making up imaginary character flaws, such as being arrogant which when asked for examples they'll say he just comes off that way. On top of it, making up imaginary flaws as a fighter "He's gonna get brutally KO'd once his chin gets checked". Yes, because he must have a glass chin. Seems only logical.

I can't wait for Jones' to be exposed. People have been saying he's a messiah since he was like, 1-0 in the UFC. If he loses to Bader (not a top guy, clearly lost to Nog 2 rounds to 1, there's a lot of people who are going to be embarrassed.



Actually if he does anything BUT steamroll Bader at this point it will be embarrassing. People are acting like he KO'd Rampage, submitted Machida, beat Rashad and finished Shogun. In reality he's... beaten Vera and Bonnar? At a time when Coleman dominated Bonnar.
