Do you watch Jon Jones fights, hoping he'll win or get his ass kicked?

    Jon Jones has been a polarising figure at times. He is the new P4P king and UFC poster boy, so its interesting to see what his purchase is.

    I want to do a quick site survey to see what people think.

    Pick one.

    #1 I want to see him win :cool:
    #2 Im not a fan, but i watch hoping to see a great fight.:icon_neut
    #3 I watch to see a display of some of the best martial arts on the planet. :icon_conf
    #4 I want to see him lose badly. Il be honest, him getting smashed up shoop style, would be my best scenario. :icon_twis

    for me, its i order his cards usually or go to bar to watch Bones fight since he beat shotgun rua, b/c of response #3 and #2. Bones usually finishes whoever he fights and his fights are exciting. theres no lay and pay or bullshit its usually Bones pounding someone out.

    He is obviously the UFC golden boy right now, so i made this thread to see what his attraction is. Is it Tysonesque or Mayweatheresque etc. For me its kind of the spectacle of seeing one of the best MMArtists alive, but if he got his ass kicked, i would laugh.

    depends on the opponent. was hoping for Shadface 2.0; was impartial in the Lyoto fight, wanted Rampage to beat him, will root for Gus.

    Depends who he's fighting. Not a huge fan though, pulling hard for Gus.

    This is the second silly jones thread I have seen from you. The Jones fascination you have is strange and weird.

    If you dislike the guy, its fine but this here is for toddlers. Some of you haters are bigger fans of jones than his fans are which really is something to see.

    I don't hate on him at all. I think he's fantastic and I watch because I know I'm going to see some great stuff. As to who I root for? I have been rooting against him lately it seems, not passionately, just because I have a thing for rooting for underdogs. No hate involved and I still enjoy watching him. I just get caught up in the underdog/upset concept.

    I watch because I'm a fan and I want to see if he has added stuff to his game since he is also still on of the younger champions

    Dude, thats Phil Davis in my avatar.

    How could you make that mistake?

    [​IMG]

    Your user name is fanboi, and the dude is fighting this weekend.

    Ever think about clicking something else, or going away for a week?

    Its obviously relevant what his purchase is, as he is the new P4P golden boy.

    I didn't realize I was feeding a troll. I never understood why if a fan dislikes a fighter they spend all their time ripping on them. If I see a thread discussing a fighter I don't like, I just don't read it.

    I don't like him, want to see him lose, but I don't watch for that reason - I watch because he's talented, the guys he fights are talented, and the belt is up for grabs. Seeing him lose would just be a bonus :)

    3 and 4. I want to see him lose but know it won't happen so I will sit back and watch him destroy everything beautifully.

    I know without a doubt he's going to win. Gustaffson has nothing for him.
