i thought that it wasn't as serious to begin with. but as soon as jones threw that punch during the staredown, it has become serious. they may have been told by the ufc to keep things pg-13 from now on, but they really don't like each other now.
we shouldn't forget that it's not just about them. it's also about what others think of them, based on this. both men are affected by what others think as well. if either guy feels that they are looking worse than the other, it's going to get them upset and even further the beef.
pick one -- equality, or quality. can't have both.
