(just my opinion).

So, here it is:

1. Am i a big as Jon Jones fan?! - Yes, definitely.

2. Do i love Jon Jones - the fighter?! - Yes, definitely. I believe he is the most exciting fighter in the UFC. And definitely the biggest talent in MMA atm. His progression/evolution as a fighter is a proof of that.

3. Do i love Jon Jones - the person?!
- I like the fuy, because he is confident in his own skills and abilities and he speaks his mind - something most people are affraid of, because they're too scared of what people would think of them if they would do this.

4. Do i worship him like a GOD?! - NO. I don't do things like that. I am not that type of person. I am just a simple fan, who cheers for his favorite athelte when it's *that time*.

5. Do i believe Jones made the right decision by accepting the title fight?! - Yes, definitely. I've been throug a lot of things that made me a believer in the concept: "CARPE DIEM = LIVE THE MOMENT". It's a life philosophy - take advantage of every chance you get, because life is just too short to enjoy it. You have to make the most of it, because you never know what's gonna happen next.
Life is a result of every single decision you take in your life. Jones took the decision to fight for the title and it paid off - he's champion.
Before this, Evans took the decision to wait for his shot and it didn't pay off for him. That's life...

6. Do i believe Jones did the right thing by saying he would fight Evans?! - I can't answer that really. I don't know all details involved.
But, i believe he was a bit immature and he could have avoided this situation by talking to Evans and his coaches about this subject, before he talked to the media first. And all this *drama* would have been avoided.

7. Do i believe Evans overreacted?! - Yes, i do. He is the more marture and experienced fighter, but he acted nothing like that and instead he started calling names and saying unnecessary stuff about Jones and especially about his trainers, showing disrespect towards them (Jackson)...at least imo. Something Martial Arts isn't about.

8. Do i believe Evans is fake?! - Yes, i do.
At least regarding this subject...(and some things seen on TUF against Rampage - Evans calling Rampage *Uncle Tom* for example...)
Because, in his won words, he said he didn't want Jones there in the first place. But, for the 18 months he and Jones were teammates he acted like he was his friend, someone who accepted his presence in the team, telling stories about them being close friends and putting a fake smile (imo).

To make a short resume of this situation: let's say i work in a company. And the boss says: hey, there is this kid, HIro, he is a good guy, and i would like him to join our team. I say: "NO, i don't want him joining our team", but in the end i accept.
Then you join the team and i'm greeting you: "hey man, so nice to hear you joining the team..so glad you're joining us! really thrilled to have you."..."We're good friends"...bla bla bla
And after i leave the company i'm saying: "i didn't want you there in the first place", we weren't friends actually..."

For me...that's a fake person.
That's why i reffered to his person.
Maybe (i'm convinced) we have different criterias by wich we analyse people/characters. But...i've seen people, in real life, do things like that, so i can relate to a situation like this one.

In the end it's just my opinion on this subject.

I hope i went through every point related to this subject and you understand my opinion.
If not, no problem.

No offense.
Jones is actually the person i consider LEAST likely to speak his mind. The guy doesnt even want to say ASS in public but instead spell it. He wants people to perceive him a certain way AT ALL costs. That 100% stops him from speaking his mind. He also hunted down a writer that wrote an article about him because he didnt like what it said. He is very self conscious about his image and thus will never say something if it chances to tarnish it.

Anyway.. just my opinion.

Your boss says there's a new guy going to join, but he's pretty good and everyone knows sometime down the line he's going to want that promotion you're going for. You resist, but your boss insists. The guy joining says don't worry we'll never cross paths etc, your boss agrees, so you say ok cool lets work together and be friends. You fall sick and the guy takes your promotion. The hinting at fighting Rashad doesn't really fit here but let's not forget that.

So after all that, you really think Rashad is overreacting and being fake? See this is what I mean, your bias is so glaringly obvious. It was an impossible situation made worse by both of them. Yet in every one of your posts, and don't kid here you have made dozens on the matter, Jones is this perfect guy and Rashad is the bad one. , and if anything Jones was the fake one by joining the gym and making promises he couldn't keep.


I have replied to you about this subject so many times that I've lost count, but you are always there ready to chirp up about it first, I just reply because it bugs me when people are so biased they just waffle on about things without ever budging. Gray talked about fake people and bam you're here talking about Rashad being fake with Jon Jones. Then you write a typically long and biased post about how Jones is cool and Rashad has done this that and the other. Seriously, you can't see what I'm saying here?

It's a forum Hiro.
A place where people can speak their mind, express their opinions.
And my opinion is the one i expressed in my previous post.

People don't think the same about a certain subject.

I know for sure, you an me...we agree on a lot of things - i've seen this on this forum - but this is just one subject we won't agree on.
Simple as that.

Again: Jones is not perfect, he made some mistakes in the way he approached this whole suject - i've already sai that. He could have taken a different approach to this whole situation. He didn't. Maybe it was just him being a young, inexperienced person, too enthusiastic...

Or maybe it was all premeditated?! And he's an evil genius. Who knows?!

But it's all history now.

And i still think Rashad was fake in his relation to Jones -PERSONAL OPINION. Never gonna change it.

It's just something i believe in. I've been through a similar situation once (different subject, smaller proportions), so you have to understand i am a bit subjective and it's impossible for you or anyone else to change my opinion about this.

That's all.

Agreed. Could have been so easy to avoid this whole situation.
Mistakes - people learn from mistakes.

All I'm saying is, you're biased dude. Go back and look at your posts about this subject and you're never empathetic towards Rashard, always Jones. I defended Rashad countless times but there's numerous times where I've said they are both to blame.

And now this!

I think he is gonna fight someone like Davis or the winner of Franklin and Griffin!

Still a lot of possibilities for him.
Doesn't need to switch divisions.

I respect your opinion.

Just like i've said already: i love Jon Jones the fighter - more than any other fighter, because i believe the guy is talented as hell and could be one of the best fighters ever.

It's a pleasure watching him fight.

And i've watched him since evolve ever since his debut UFC debut.

As a person, i like the guy: at least from what i've seen in the news, media, interviews etc.

Is he perfect: hell no!

But this is just how i percieve the guy.

Do i want you (or anyone else) to think the same about him?! NO.

Having different opinions is what makes people unique, makes a certain person an *individual*.

And, debates like this one wre welcomed any time. No harm done.

I don't know if i should be offended by this post or ...greatful to read something like this.

I tried figuring this out all day long - nothing yet.

1. I did finish High School. In 2002.

2. In 2007 i graduated from the Faculty of Ecomonics and Administrative Sciences (Petru Maior University).

Link here

I got my diploma in Management.
Just so you know.

3. "I like the fuy" (guy)
"in his won words" (own)
"favorite athelte" (athlete)
"more marture" (mature)

Typing too fast at 1:24 AM (my local time)...after a long and tiring day...

4. "Affraid" - correct version: afraid.
"reffered" - correct version: referred.
"That's why i reffered to his person..." - common expression in romanian. I translated it.
"...criterias by wich we analyse..." - it's the only way i know how to formulate that expression

Hiro understood what i tried to express there...

Strange...

So...I agree - i made some grammatical errors in my post.

Idea for you: You should read and analyse all posts on MMAF, even those posted by the people who have english as their native language.
You would discover a lot of interesting things...


5. English isn't my native language.

But i've been told my english skills are excellent.

I joined this forum, in June 2009, and 5,200+ posts after...you're the 1st person to say something about by english skills.

Strange...again...........

The correct version is: you should consider changing

Best regards.
Have a wonderful day!
