People aren't going to remember how he acted in the buildup to a fight, or if they do they won't care. What they will remember is the record and the fights. Look at Ali. Most beloved fighter ever and he truly said some fucked up shit to his opponents. No one cares today.

With those injury-prone feet, Jones won't survive fighting at the highest levels into his 30s. Plus his personality grates on opponents so they will come harder and faster to dethrone him.

In all honesty, all the current haters will probably be getting all teary-eyed and nostalgic about Jones 10-15 years from now and talking about how the future young champions couldnt have taken him in his prime.
This.

These haters are the first to giggle like school girls & wet themselves if they met Bones in person.

4 years from now Jones will without a doubt, be a legend of the sport.

I wouldn't even give the guy the time of day. He's not God, he's not the GOAT, he's not anybody I'd ever look up to or want to emulate, so no. He's beyond being full of himself and a fraud (he admitted to being fake already with his "I'm a professional" and "many hats" admissions). Now, go back to watching Blade II and thinking the monsters in that movie (like the one in your avatar) are real.

You would do nothing of the sort.

"Go back to watching Blade II"? That was pretty random.
