    Enough with the "he is young" excuse. Dude is 27 with 4 kids. He is a grown ass man.

    This. I'm not trying to discredit Jones or take anything away, but what's with people nowadays referring to adults as kids?

    This. If you are over 25 you are a grown man. Or at least you should be one.

    I'm sorry, but Wink is spot-on in regards to this comment:
    "...for those individuals that spend their whole day on the internet, telling everybody all of the bad things that Jon Jones did. I

    Can't argue with Cosplay's work ethic. Also, no, Jonathan is most certainly no a kid anymore, so that excuse goes out through the window. That being said, cocaine still isn't that big of a deal.

    I don't think anyone cares what he does with his free time. It's what he does while he's fighting that people care about. If he wants to snort coke while he's out partying that his business. But if he's using it to cut weight that's a whole other story.

    Thanks, TS. I appreciate these a lot. My hearing is bad and the internet used to be a great equalizer for me as far as getting news. More and more often every site posts everything in a video/audio format instead of writing it down. Even Sherdog's main page is like that.

    I want to add my share of props to TS for transcription. I have never listened to SR and I hit play before seeing the work you'd done. I was like 2:12:16 (or whatever) and those dudes voices sounding like they were broadcasting from the lost city of Atlantis? Damn, I wanted to know what Wink said! Then I scrolled and was happy. Thanks bro.

    Cerrone is a legit badass

    He should be the role model for all other UFC fighters

  18. Wink needs to take it less personal. Criticism is a part of any sport. And mma is unique as it is a sport where you actually have to pay a premium price to see the top athletes compete.

    jon has had the perception of being a dirty fighter for a long long time. I've been a spurs fan since the twin towers era, and while Bruce bowen was one of the best defenders in the league, he always got shat on because he was perceived as a dirty player. As a spurs fan I just counted championships and didn't care. The thing is, in those sports though, you actually see fouls when athletes play dirty though. In mma, they just get warnings. So yeah when you combine that with the fact fans pay for events, there will be a higher level of negative feedback. And Jon is a grown man with 4 kids. He is not a kid anymore and doesn't need people to make excuses for him like he is a toddler.

    And when your champion tests for a narcotic, expect the worst.

    He is right. It seems like some of the haters would feel like they have accomplished something if he lost. A bit weird.

    I agree but man, they broke the mold after making this guy on Plum Island. He's a connsumate fighter and a total cool weirdo. If all fighters were like him, championship reigns would be short but HL reels would be loooong!
