    Great, now jones is going to run away from the sport, return for a one-off fight against a fading flash in the pan, then retire again. Goddamn it.

    Cliifs : GSP says fighters do have fear,but that in itself usually doesnt prevent the fight from happening,they just want to get paid more for harder fights,which is normal

    Jon Jones knows that. He was afraid of USADA so he hid under the cage. He was afraid of losing to the new crop of LHW challengers so he vacated the title. He's afraid of getting knocked out by Ngannou so he's demanding $20M for the fight. Jon has a plan to combat his fears

    Sad when genuine wisdom coming from a fighter who’s been in there at the highest level gets butchered so horribly

    Oh, I clearly know what I heard listening to the podcast. Would I ever misconstrue it in a way to ruin sherdog with some shitty clickbait thread about Jones being "afraid"? ..no

    The Jon Jones "afraid" narrative has been around since hes been fighting.

    If you look back his detractors have claimed hes been afraid of everyone hes faced starting with Shogun (who was going to knock his head off)

    Some of the more interesting fears he's had are of Lyoto for tagging him in a round and Chael.

    He has to be the most successful scared fighters on the forum

    Those are all guys in his weight class tho.. Most of which he had a significant size, reach and length advantage over.

    We're talking about moving up a weightclass and fighting the scariest dude in then UFC.

    GSP is on point as usual. Very intellectual. Love listening to him.

    He would know, he was terrified of going up and fighting Anderson Silva.

    Why did he have to move up so all the advantages would go to Anderson?

    Anderson said he could move down. Was he just taunting?
