Jones trolling the fighters he fight is part of his methodical game plan.

Jones is an intelligent cerebral fighter.

He doesn't troll and seek for reactions from fighters for his own amusement. He does it because in his mind, Jones know he is human. And when he fights another guy, being the cerebral person he is, he gets very nervous. He is like GSP in a lot of ways. He gets scared.

But from Jones perspective, if he can get a reaction out of his opponents, an immature reaction, any type of reaction, that in his mind brings them down from the pedestal that he has put them on, he becomes more confident. The fact that Cormier was a beast heavyweight beating machine scared Jones to death. But because Jones is seeing that Cormier is being flustered from his antics, it brings Cormier from superhuman to just another man in Jones mind. And his confidence soars.

That's why Jon Jones does what he does.

Now when Jon Jones fight Chris Weidman, someone who is completely balanced and confident in himself, Jones won't be able to seek a reaction. Chris Weidman is like a boulder, you can't move him. And this will scare Jones to death and he will already have lost the fight before the fight starts.

REally I don't remember how Jon messed with Glover or Gus. How did he get into Vitor's head? And pulling out of 151 because he was scared of Chael(lol) was what then?

I think you're giving Jon Jones a little too much credit..

I don't know if this thread was really about your love for Chris Weidman, but I agree that Jones' tactics are deliberate. He tries to emasculate guys and beat them in every way possible. Jumping guard and jumping over Rampage in their bout was an example.
He uses every advantage he can, as seen with the oblique kicks, the outstretched hands, the psychological warfare, and beating guys at their own games. I'm actually starting to like Jones, he's an evil bastard.

The map is not the territory.

Is every sewing circle, gossip girl on Sherdog obsessed with Jon Jones finally losing an 18 year-old minoring in psychology or something?

You Sally's look absolutely ridiculous with your armchair psychoanalysis.
