He's been disliked by alot of fans from day one...

The only thing that has changed from his early days is hes now champion and has someone who reacts more to his trash talk.

Win or lose, this will not change after the fight, no matter how it goes down.

The pool for MMA in incredibly small. It's a niche sport that many consider barbaric. An athlete standing out of this pack is impressive, but it's not the same thing.

I get where you're coming from, but you're comparing a young champion in a young sport to an absolute legend from a sport with a century of history. They will be talking about Mario and his accomplishments forever, in ten years it's possible few people will even remember Jones.

Until his career is over and we see what he's accomplished, it's ludicrous to compare him to Mario. That's the thing about MMA fans, everything is right now. Everyone is a GOAT. Every fight is everything. Yesterday didn't happen and tomorrow doesn't matter.
Great post. I think both of you present your arguements well, but I agree with your opinion.
