Opinions about what Jon Jones is doing and speculation about his reasoning abound. I'm pretty comfortable saying he has the most fervent haters and huggers on the forum. I'm still wading through the information and sources to determine my own view of the situation. The one thing I have decided is that with the UFC and particularly Dana White attitude towards guys who stand against them and don't toe the company line, I absolutely respect his resolve. Tito, both Shamrocks, Rampage, Fedor, Couture etc have all been vilified and disrespected for doing the same. Jones is being pressured by the company, fans, media, and other fighters and is not giving in. It shows a great deal of strength to stick to your guns knowing how that normally goes. Despite the certainty people are showing, no one here knows to whole story or Jones motivation. Depending on how things play out, a lot of opinions could change. Regardless of that, Jones is showing incredible resolve and I respect that.
