Jon Jones "I can tap out Shogun"

seems like during the UFC 128 conference call JBJ said: ''Despite being a white belt, I think I can tap out Shogun. ''

and also said that hes excited that he will be pushed for the first time in his career with this fight

now does any1 know if this is actually true or a rumor? ive seen it on other forums and no1 has said its BS yet...i dont have any hate torwards jones, and i never even bothered to care for other things he has said

but damn to actually say he will tap shogun out...seems very disrespectful, and to say you havent been pushed yet is pretty disrespectful to his other opponents up until now

i dont hate him but i really didnt like this comment, i hope its just some BS rumor

and to be fair he could have said it as a joke or something like that

How is it disrespectful? Or are you just joking? You are aware that this guy is a professional fighter right?

Yes saying he will knock out or tap out his opponent before the fight is cocky. He should just say he'll lay on him for 5 rounds to be humble.

When people hate a certain fighter, no matter what they say, is disrespectful. BTW Jones hasn't been pushed yet. Seems like Rashad and Jones get most of the unwarranted hate on this forum and is getting to the point of being ridiculous...

No its not disrespectful at all. For some reason Bones is being held to a ridiculously high standard. Its almost like he's running for president and the opposition is trying to tear him down.

I wasn't that much of a fan and still dont consider him one of my "favs" but damn he has a lot of haters.

In what context was that quote said in first of all? I wouldn't ever expect a fighter to be unsure of his abilities.

lol i dont even hate on him, look at my posts ive never even posted in the other threads where ppl hate on him, i really have nothing against him, its just this is beyond ridiculous

i have seen many fighters saying ''oh hes better than me in X area but i dont care'' and other things like that

but you come out and say that you think you can tap shogun even though you're a white belt? i guess this just shows how he really needs to learn more about the game, maybe he doesnt understand what a white belt is...come on..i train bjj...in shoguns gym! lol...if he actually pulls this off i will be a fan for life, i guess its not disrespectful, just really, really, REALLY stupid

just because you are going into a fight you dont have to believe you can beat your opponent everywhere, i bet you AS didnt think he could out-wrestle chael for example

its a good mentality to have...but its just beyond ridiculous..keep dreamin son!

seems like every time people get worked up over something like this the fighter was asked a direct question in which the only other possible answer would be admitting his opponent would best him.

I call that BS, if it were true it would be all over the sites by now.

Even if itīs true i donīt see it as being disrespectuful, more like if it is a self confidence thing.
