Unless you think me calling you a loser, is defending Jones?

And gus had a very small fan base before everyone hopped on his train leading up to the Jones fight. The vast majority of his "fans" arent real fans. Most of them will mump to the next wagon if gus loses. And Sheep follow each other in herds, last I checked the herd is hating Jones right now, and loving gus, not following wand. Quit projecting.
Not quite. I haven't talked bad about Jon for a while except earlier today about his boxing being horrendous. I did say that he improved his boxing though, specifically in the pocket. I'd hope so too because he needed to improve his boxing after getting boxed up and tagged like a UPS package by Gus fight before last. I've been supporting Gus for years, in fact, check my post history and you'll see that. Well before he ever fought Jon so try again, sonny boy. Well before the fight was even announced. I think you'll be saddened to see that I'll still be a Gus fan even if he loses to Jones in their rematch. Not that I think he will.

I wasn't replying to you. I was talking about something Jones said in the video. He said he "out kickboxed Machida".

Ahh okay, thought you were asking me about what I was stating about jones commentary before his Machida and Rampage fights.

I guess there are consolation prizes for some folks.
Jones did win the fight...

Which one is Jone?

In the YouTube video that I embedded in the OP Jones said that he "out-kickboxed Machida", having already fought him. I don't remember Jones saying pre-fight that he'd do that to Lyoto but he's bragging about supposedly outstriking him now, at least in that interview going into the Gus fight. Jon is a very proud guy, he's just taking a little too much credit for a fight where he wasn't getting the best of said fighter in the 1st round in the standup.

Yes, he did. In the YouTube video I embedded he said that he "out-kickboxed" Machida. He caught him with a left and dropped him but that was after Machida was rocked by that big elbow that gashed his head open when Jon was on top. Jon's said a lot of dumb stuff which is why I posted the video. He said that he was faster than Gus, stronger, and that he'd basically box him up too. Look how that turned out. I'd hardly say that Jones outstruck or "out-kickboxed" Machida but dropping him, despite him already being rocked from the elbow at the time and having not recovered, is still impressive. It doesn't mean he really outstruck the guy though, he caught him, but nowhere in that fight was Jon besting Machida in the standup prior.

Listen I enjoy the childishness of these posts but it was a close fight. I personally thought Jones did enough to win as did many other MMA fans and outlets. It could of gone either way which I would not have objected too.

I could post a picture of jones holding the belt which would go well with your cheesy "which one is jones picture" but its corny.

I always enjoy the idea that someones opinion on who won a close fight means someone stole the fight.

Well, sir, you are in luck then! Some of these UFC fighters, you know, PROs, think that was the case.

Gus does train with Pearson and Vera but those two aside, many pro fighters, inside the UFC and abroad, and even Ed Soares (manager for several Blackhouse fighters including Anderson) scored the fight for Gus. Chael Sonnen also scored it for Gus as did a plethora of other known and lesser known fighters. Yet many of you Jones fans will claim that the fight wasn't controversial. As if that's supposed to mean that it wasn't.

Mmm, I'm with you TS. Jones should offer a public apology and retire. I'm outraged.
