    He is not smart enough to be a troll...He is just ignorant and sad!

    This likely sums up this entire situation.

    It was probably typed up by a Sherdogger.

    I dunno if it's considered as trolling, I mean Jones isn't doing an act solely to gain attention and I seriously doubt this is about the money, he is genuinely ducking Gus, and hurting his image in the process. Not a troll job, just plain old ducking.

    I would have been all for the troll theory if not for all those salty DMs to random fans.

    Yep.

    Even he is embarrassed by his own actions that he has to delete his videos not long after putting them up.

    It's not ducking. Jones will probably fight him after Cormier. He is just making Gustaffsson fight again...to give Gus a taste of what it's like to have a target on your back. In this case, Gus is so clearly a top contender that if he had to take a fight in the meantime his shot at the title would be on the line. He's basically making Gus eat his words for saying the belt was his by making him fight yet another contenders fight. It's a classic Jones move...the career equivalent of foot stomping or kicks to the knee.

    He knows without a shadow of a doubt that most MMA fans are a bunch of gullible fools that will chew on his every word.

    Back in my day you didn't know shit about these guys. All you had to go on was the fight. Now we "hardcore" MMA fans are more concerned with what they say than how they fight. It's pretty sad if you think about it.

    Fuck a PR team. If anything he needs to work harder at pissing everyone off. I personally enjoy watching a bunch of guys getting their panties in a bunch over the guy. If he farted and said excuse me, a majority of you would analyse it, dissect the fart and bitch about how he had the audacity to excuse the fucking fart.

    He's being himself and not letting the UFC toy with him. That's the best PR to me

    Exactly. People care far more about him as a person rather than a fighter

    Except JJ never showed any interest in fighting Cormier until it was announced that Daniel needs knee surgery, now suddenly he's keen. Coincidence?

    You guys will never understand that with each forum thread, and each "article", he's manipulating you to create buzz for an eventual fight with Gus
