    So ever since I started covering the curious behaviour, well documented here on Sherdog Forums, I've discovered a trend where whenever I, or anyone else for that matter, criticises Jon for anything whatsoever, there would be a few passionate Jones fans putting forth the argument that Jon is a master gamesman in terms of mental warfare and is actually just playing mental games with the whole world, man. That itself is no big deal, guys, there are indeed individuals who are great gamesmen and have gotten far through mental games along with their physical gifts. However, what made this phenomenon curious is the fact that no matter how much evidence, no matter how many expert opinions and no matter how many times I performed an in depth analysis on the latest on Jon, these passionate individuals would come out of the woodwork seemingly blind to the facts throwing out slogans such as "Jon is beginning to rustle a lot of people", "Jon is in your head, man!" or "Jones is such a master troll, guys!"

    Now that even more evidence have come forth, clearly supporting my case which by the way I believe everyone knows at this point so I'm not gonna bog this thread down by repeating the whole thing over and over again, I think it's undeniable that there's more into this than just simple gamesmanship by the champ, man. So let me ask you guys this: Do you still believe that Jon "the troll" is just "rustling" more people with his masterful "heel" character he created? I know I never did, and I know a lot of people in the know didn't but if you still do, please give me reasoning on why you do. Thanks guys. Keep it civil.

    In bed with your bitch, watching game of thrones,
    Jones fans are defensive and delusional.
    It's hilarious how they tried to pretend he was some master troll for like 3 days when he was riding high after winning a fight.

    I think Jon Jones is a troubled athlete who needs to deal with his professional and recreational choices that stem from that.

    Aside from that, in fights he is quite dominant from what we've seen, sure.

    Absolutely, bro, no question about the fact that the guy's an amazing mixed martial artist.

    Could care less about his persona. Would be a huge huge fan...IF...no eyepokes. Also snorting a little coke isn't always an indicator that a person is "troubled."

    What I'm saying, bro, is that I've for a long time already known, well documented here on Sherdog Forums, that Jon Jones is a little bit off balance when it comes to being a full fledged, mature man. Now, I've documented and analysed some of the tell tale signs for quite some time now already, my man, and while there has existed a massive body of evidence for quite some time now, a lot of passionate Jon Jones guys, who argue that Jon is simply "playing the heel" or he's been "rustling" a lot of people with his "trolling". I think the newest scandals just completely validate my view on this hot button topic, but IN the UNLIKELY case that some people still cling on to their outdated views on Jon, I'd like to hear their reasoning on this subject.

    Of course, and you're all playing right into the master troll's hands.

    I think you're way too emotional charged for a discussion of this caliber, my man. Now if you do want to contribute, go ahead, but lets not resort to name calling here for Christ sake.

    We've known for a very long time that he's a dirty fighter willing to do anything inside the octagon. The fact that that behavior spills over into his personal life shouldn't be a surprise.

    Jon Jones is actually Alexander Gustafsson. It all makes sense now...

    LOL I have no emotional connection to this situation whatsoever. I dont care if Jones lives or dies, but to think that there is some masterful mind game being played by him as evidenced by his constant dum-dum antics is just silly.

    The guy doesn't have any well thought out agenda. It might be that he is just a turd of a person who is doing whatever he wants, because the company he fights for has his back no matter what.

    DWI/Car accident? No problem.

    Death threats on camera? Hey, this is the fight game.

    Positive test for yayo? It's a great thing this happened.

    Exactly! But you'd be surprised how many passionate people there are who're totally blind to this behaviour and claim to the contrary.

    Bro, you're all over the place and I'm not sure you even read my opening statement and my references based on your ramblings.

    Of course I didnt read that wall of text. I went solely off of the thread title and assumed to know what the thread was about like anyone else would. I couldn't make it through the first sentence, tbh...

    I used to think he was just a normal dude who was easily offended while trying to sound bland to appease potential sponsors.

    After hearing him at the post fight press conference the other night, where he sounded like he was reading off a list without there being a list, I think dude's either too stressed or he might have some very differentiated mood swings from time to time.

    So, basically, you are agreeing to the point OP is making.
