I agree. Look no further than GSP.

Jones is a big boy and gets paid well, 500k well, so I dont think some criticism or hate would bother him.

I dont get making a thread about what if jones said, its not worth it. Jones is a popular fighter but cocky fighter and there will always be hypocrisy in regards to him and many other fighters.

Jones is cocky, he enjoys it and wears it, so its to be expected. I also think you give MMA fans as well as Sherdog posters in general, too much credit since most of the sherdog posters have the social skills of children.

It's a relevant question. It won't be answered properly, however. The truth is people are just willing to practice an unfair double standard when it comes to Jones. I call it the 'Mean Girls' club of MMA fandom.

It is relevant, and it has been answered. Multiple times by multiple people in multiple different threads. The truth is is that people are willing to believe whatever the hell they want despite being proven wrong time and time again. They'll insist it's racism, sexism, fanboyism or any other 'ism' that allows them to ignore the arguments and remain purposefully ignorant.

It's bizarre because the only way I figure it is that people either lack the deductive reasoning to understand why people think Jones is arrogant and has less elbow room to make statements like this, or they've conveniently misread, misunderstood or outright didn't get a chance to see every single post that'd lend itself to someone thinking Jon is not only above average on the cocky scale, but almost the P4P king in the sport.
