Jon just beat one guy that many thought would have the tools to tool him. Jon climbed a huge mountain, and shut up a lot of people. Not doubters, because (I think) at this point in time, if you doubt him, you are just blind. Yes, Jon won the battle...but did he win the war? This is my question for you. Did Jon win the war? Let me explain. By war, I mean the acceptance of people as someone great..which IMO it is obvious that this is what he yearns. and I think he lost. First, in his own words, the UFC made him "look like the bad guy". Then the "you there p***y" argument. Then the other battle of words. Yes, Jon prove DC wrong inside the octagon. But outside, it seems he took some major steps back. His hands raised, then the sign, then the post fight interview... you could even strike that as "in the heat of the moment" thing. (he even apologized for that). But then, at the post fight press conference, then later in an interview, then clowning at his FB.... dude, I understand you beat DC. But learn to win! Yes, obviously there are a lot of people who will suck up to him no matter what he does or how he behaves. We've seen that. People who like to root for the champ, regardless of his character. And I think it is fair. Heck, plenty of people rooted for Sonnen! And Jon is a beacon of righteousness compared! But IMO he lost his quest to be cheered unanimously by most, the way guys like Fedor, GSP or Silva are. What I have doubt now, is if Jon gave up on this quest to gain acceptance and said "F*ck it!". He was exposed big time before and after this fight... so IMO it is almost impossible to turn this around (heck, even Dana is saying he should turn heel!).
