Well played, Jones, well played.

How could someone say ALI acted the same as jones does ? ALI was a man and acted like one , jon jones acts like a female at times . And also it's not an act jones is a fake, period . But I guess it doesn't matter because no matter what he is the best fighter on the planet .

Please stop using trolling in the wrong context. Nothing Jon does is considered trolling.

Good contribution.


Anyhow, to clarify what I meant to everyone else: I don't mean that Jones is literally trying to be Ali or Mayweather, trying to be the outspoken bad guy. Rather, I think he's accepted that people don't like his persona, the "fakeness", the trolling on social media then covering it up during interviews with soft-spoken niceness, etc. Whether it's real or not I don't know, but he's now using it as part of his image to sell his brand and fights, and I think it's working.

I don't usually buy PPVs (I've only ever personally paid for UFC 100 and 168), but I'm going to buy this one now thanks to all this mad hype (and McGOATor, of course).

DAT "FAKENESS" WORKING, BRO!

He has 100 different personalities. I think that's why people find him fake. Choir boy during ESPN interviews, obnoxious troll on instagram etc.

Not that I give a shit about a sportsman's personality. I'm just there to watch them compete. Jones is a monster, so I'll watch every time.
