When people start talking about themselves in third person that is arrogance.

well i think jones is not confident, IMO he is scared and he is trying to boost his confidence by talking that kind of stuff

Arrogance can be a good thing also. It can fuel great rivalries and make competition better. It's what gets one fighter going in wanting to become a great.
MMA is a sport full of arrogant people, it's just that we don't get to see fighters showing it.
How would you feel walking into a room, knowing you can beat up everyone in that room?! Walking on the street or into a bar and not knowing what fear looks like?! Everyone being "involuntary cautious" and affraid towards/of you...
Fighters need to have somekind of arrogance.

I would also like to see more people here talking about the fight itself - technical breakdown, strategies, the "who, why and how" regarding this fight.

Sometimes i get the impression there is too much "sissy talk"...especially when it involves things that were said/that happened outside of the cage.
It feels like MMAF stands for "Mega Morality Awareness Forum"...or something like this.......
Like I said, I don't care if you're arrogant, that's not what I don't like about Jones. It's that he wants it both ways, he wants his cake and wants to eat it too. You can't say arrogant things then say you're humble, it just doesn't work that way.

People should formulate their own opinion on the matter for me is he is a great fighter and i think he will win with that said i think he is hugely arrogant.

I truly believe it's my time, so I feel as if it's already done. And the people who picked me to win, they'll be saying 'I told you so'.

Very Arrogant.


"Now it’s just my time to go out there and literally take what belongs to me. I feel as though that’s my belt and I want it and I’m going to hang on to it. But I’m going to start with Shogun."

How can you say that isnt arrogant really ?

"I'm going to be too strong, too hungry, too dynamic, too explosive; it's about the rise of Jon Jones."

Speaking in Third person is extremely arrogant.

Hes full of himself , hasn't anyone commented on his inability to properly address two of the most prolifict fighters in MMA and confuses the twos strengths..

Countdown to UFC 128...

"I want Anderson Silvas Wrestling , I want GSPs Striking"

Its improvised , or there wasn't any cuts ,the editor should be fired as in that line a field a slip like that would warrent the pink slip. He's to cocky all the hype has got to his head and it will be his downfall. Jones weakness if anything is having a young mind of a hungry fighter , that still is in its infancy of mental edurance.

I like Shogun refrence to JBJ skinny legs LOL and how he'll chomp them down...UFC has had some great fights of late GSP VS SHIELDS , SILVA VS BELFORT , JBJ VS SHOGUN ... i dont like tho how SHOGUN is getting the lesser of the limelight hes defeated a list of guys that were in there PRIME that on paper would make a beters wet dream .. still anything can happen silva vs chael really cemented that only if Dana can take those belts from the decesioners and put it on a finisher LOL Dana loves those guys that finish fights hes stated several times and hence why theres bonus hes indirectly making a incentive to finish your fights never leave it too the judges.
