    These are sincere questions and I hope you take them that way.

    1. A rematch with Cormier at HW of any interest to you?



    2. Do you still not understand why while nobody questions Jones' skill, his personality is wholly unlikeable?



    3. Do you truly believe his height/length do not matter?

    4. Are you still not interested in him fighting at HW?

    I can admit that there is no denying that many people here have a strange, delusional hatred towards Jones where they can find any reason under the sun to give him shit, when any other fighter could do the same thing and they would get praise.

    FACT.

    Yeah he does shit that is arrogant, prick, etc but there is no denying some of the ludicrous things people get pissed at him for.

    His reach and height help him because he knows how to use it well. Not everyone with his reach and size can do it. It's a skill and stop downplaying it as such.

    You can do those very same things with GSP, Fedor, Silva, etc.

    He can fight at HW and probably beat most, if not all HWs.

    I don't think a fight at HW with DC would go much different.

    I totally agree. Doesn't answer 3 of my 4 questions.

    No, no, no and no. Lol

    Cormier didnt deserve this fight, let alone a rematch.

    I get why he rubs people the wrong. That kind of stuff actually makes me like him more.

    The moment him and DC came to the middle, his size difference was so drastic I saw no way for Cormier to pull it off.

    And why move to HW now. I feel like once he passes 30 years old, he will naturally become heavier and have a harder time making 205. That'll be the time to do it, imo

    1. Not really. He already beat him convincingly everywhere.

    2. I think you should read some more of the threads that are popping up right now if you don't think people question his talent, or at least don't give him the credit he deserves.

    3. I think few people say they don't matter, but I think it's fair to say he uses his physical gifts expertly, which is in and of itself a skill few possess. Give Melvin Guillard Jones' fight I.Q. and he'd be unbeatable. Reach can be a benefit, but it won't win any of your fights for you.

    4. After this fight I'm more interested than I was before. HW is a whole new set of problems and it remains to be seen if he could be as competitive in the heavier division, but this match at least showed he won't be easily tossed around as some made it seem.

    I think that discredits what Jones did (saying DC didn't deserve it.

    I thought Jones proved once again why he's a fantastic fighter. I'm not even interested in talking about the controversy at the end etc... These are legit questions I had as an MMA fan.

    Always understood why Jones appeared unlikeable, but the haters jumped the shark a long time ago. Deep down, Jones is a good, hard-working person. Once I understood that, I was cool with Jones.

    Not interested in a Cormier rematch. It's not a marketable fight.

    I don't think anything tonight was unlike able. He doesn't like a guy and he said so. Has he done other unlike able things? Yes

    Reach is an advantage disadvantage thing. So people who make it seem that it's the only reason he wins don't give him credit.

    Yes id like to see him gain 20 and fight hw. I'll go on the record right now...he'll beat the crap out of JDS right now

    1. Possibly, if they both get to that point again

    2. I understand people on here get their jimmies rustled over the stupidest stuff and hold grudges whenever their favorite fighter loses. Hate his personality all you want, but you can't question his skills.

    3. They have a factor but reach alone doesn't win a fight, especially if you don't use it properly. Jones knows and uses his reach masterfully, but anyone who thinks Jones just wins based off reach is a desperate hater.

    4. I'd like to see Jones fight at HW, especially if he prepares well for the transition. Don't know why you post a Cormier gif for that, its not like going down to LHW took away his punching power...

    1. I would rather see a Gus rematch. I think he stomps Cormier no matter the weight.

    2. His personality doesn't really concern me.

    3. of course his length is an advantage but that isn't a valid reason to diminish his greatness.

    4. I would love to see him at HW. I think he wins the belt and makes it look easy.

    Why should I give you sincere answers when the premises of questions are totally dishonest? People question Jones' skill day in and day out on these forums.

    They weren't questioning his skill when they were convinced DC would throw him around like a child?
