I prefer this over the Jones that did the Fox Sports interviews all odd and calm.

This guy plays the fence so well. He's a dominant MMA figure, but has a LOT of fans, and an unreal amount of people who can't stand him. So more and more will buy his PPV in hopes that he loses.
It's really hard to call a guy arrogant that has done what Jon has done.
Texeira
Gustaffson
Sonnen
Belfort
Evans
Machida
Rampage
Rua
And even outside of title fights:
Bader, Matyushenko, Vera, Bonnar and a "too brutal" DQ to Hamill

Now he's fighting the #2 Heavyweight and is heavily favored to win.


At some point its not arrogant, he's basically proven what he wants us to know about himself.

You can be the undisputed best at something, and still be arrogant, they are not mutually exclusive.

Certainly, but how outlandish would his self esteem have to be to outdo his accomplishments?

Look at that list. And all but 1 was completely blown out of the water.

It is a god-like resume.


There needs to be some self analysis where you reveal why you find a guy that works his ass off every day of the week harder than most people could even survive to be so damn arrogant.

Reminds me of a strange but kind of related story...



So a few years back I used to be a HS varsity lacrosse coach. One of my best players, a senior/team captain was injured, so I sent him to go scout a game.

So he goes to the game with his girlfriend and the whole fucking game this fucking girl is talking. Talking about her friends, talking about her fucking new shoes, talking about some party she went to (....she even told a bit more information than I really wanted to know about one of her friends who she mentioned by name and what that chick did with someone she hooked up with at the party)the whole game it was a never ending annoying stream of random high school girl jibber jabber girly shit.

BUT... since you really need to hear the audio when you scout (to know the other team's calls and certain things about their defensive scheme and formations etc) we had to listen to it. (funny enough she kind of outed a girl at that school as a slut, since kids on the team heard what she said on the tape and knew the girl)

Anyway after that I actually had to tell the team "Listen, if you go to scout a game DO NOT bring your annoying girlfriend with you and let her talk the whole time during the game. It is bad enough that YOU sit there and listen to that, but no way in hell are you going to make everyone else sit thru it to."

Hacked-twitter Jones is a great character for MMA. Love or hate him.

Great interview.
Any mainstream media attention where Jones is shinning is bound to get sherbabies panties in a twist.

Awesome in what way? The belt or ring really only represent the title...you're still champ either way

But the belt looks better in pics

It would look pretty boss for Jones to walk around with a title ring on each finger. Better yet, champions should be able to fight while wearing their championship rings. Too bad Jones won't be able to complete a full set for both hands after Dec 27.
