    Nothing specific, just curious how well liked the man is currently on these forums.

    Are you a Jon Jones fan?

    Feel free to express why you do or don't like him, refrain from bashing though.

    Jon Jones fan.

    This is clearly a dubs bait thread, though.

    An all-time great as a fighter. As a person, not so much.

    I respect him as one of the greatest fighters ever. But I am not a fan of him.

    One of the greatest fighters of all time and a likeable person, obviously enjoys his job.

    Yes. I'm really hoping he never fails another drug test or has suspicious TE ratio again. If he gets busted for roids I'd still be a fan but extremely disappointed

    Clearly not a good person if you ask me. Too hypocritical and fake for my taste. Great fighter though.

    Prepare to be surprised: Not a fan.

    I feel the same way.

    Certainly don't hate him the way many do though.

    Great Fighter. Once he starts being real about who he is I will like him more, even if that real person is flawed. Just like if Tiger woods had just come out and said "look people, I love fucking lots of girls. It's my thing. I am a grown, rich, famous man and I love to fuck as many girls as I can. I also like Golf," then I would be his biggest fan from here on out. Tiger likes to fuck Girls. All the Girls. JJ likes to party apparently. And Who knows about the Testosterone?

    Fighting ability: Excellent - Highly like
    Sportsmanship: Dislike
    Personality: Mildly dislike most of the time
    Cocaine use: Dislike-Indifferent
    T/E ratio abnormality / Possible Cheating: Dislike

    If he cheated he deserves to at least lose the belt. In fact I think he should probably lose the belt for the cocaine use right now.

    Big fan, but I must admit that he makes it difficult. It's always been kind of tough to defend him, and if everything goes down the way I think it will, there will be no way to defend his actions. He's not young and dumb anymore. He knows exactly what he's doing, and I stand by any consequence that comes down...minus a lifetime ban. Definitely a great fighter though.

    Jones fan checking in. Opinion of Jones is that he is the greatest talent the sport has ever seen and has the greatest resume in mma history. He is in the GOAT conversation with GSP, Andy and Fedor and is still only 27. This coke thing will blow over and so will the T/E ratio abnormalities.

    Indiferent, as long as he isnt roiding, his behaviour outside the octagon doesnt matter to me. I am not a fan but i recognize his greatness.
    I don't know him personally, but from what ive seen he tries to present himself as something that he isn't, he tries to create a good image that would benefit his name/brand etc. I can understand that.

    I'm a fan and love to watch him fight. Then again, I don't really need the cage fighters I watch to be model citizens or have sparking personalities. I don't really care. That's not why I watch the sport.

    I'm not a fan, but I do respect his accomplishments/skills in mma. However, that could change, if it turns out he was using peds.

    Can't vote.. *sniff*


    Yes I am..

    These latest news worry me a lot. Though I don't want to judge him and patiently waiting to things get more clear.
