Quite a champ, no one can doubt his skills, but i dont know i have ever heard a man in his position complain so much about his job while raking in hundreds of thousands of dollars.
Im just kinda bored of it now...every champ has a legacy, and im not sure what his will be; he will definitely be remembered as one of the greats, but he is just SO lame...he comes off so entitled...like the UFC owes him something...
Just be a champion, fight and beat whomever they put in front of you, show the world you are the hype that you drivel out in every interview, a confident man shouldn't need all this prodding...
You know that he's not calling these journalists, right? You know he's pretty much the most talked about champion in the UFC right now, so everyone wants to talk -to- him, right? It's weird hearing everyone on this forum telling him to "shut up and fight", when he's just answering questions. He could say no to all press, but then he'd be a Diaz and would still get shat on.
He also shows himself to be that hype every time he fights. In fact, there was only one time he was in a close fight - and that guy is getting a rematch because of it.

Except the UFC "letting Jones be the Champion" is not give.
