I'm a Jon Jones fan and I'm happy that he won, I won't gloat because there are other threads for that but it's something that I've been thinking about. For all the "Jon Jones is fake!" "He's a heel!' "He's showing his true colors finally" "He's a phony Christian!" "He's a shitty human being!" "He's a shitty person" etc. Has anyone stopped and think that Jon Jones and other fighters are complex human beings? He's a father, a Christian and seems to be a cool guy but he's also a fighter who gets paid to beat the shit out of someone for a living, he has several sides to his personality and depending on the situation, the event, that side shows. He seems to only shit talk when other fighters and fans spew shit at him. He's respectful when he's given the same respect and he can tell the difference between someone putting on an act like Chael Sonnen or when fighters are just promoting themselves like Phil Davis. DC was in neither one of those categories. So instead of being playful and relaxed like he was after the Glover fight in which Jones still got criticized for, he was merciless, driven, short and to the point, he didn't give a shit about Cormier's feelings and at this point he seems to realize that his haters are going to hate him no matter how he reacts and responds so fuck them too. Sometimes it's an attitude that one has to have especially in that line of work. When it comes to athletes I feel some fans are hypocrites in how they react because athletes make millions of dollars "playing a game" and they can't see themselves in athletes or athletes aren't complex individuals, there's an disconnect there. I'm not saying Jon Jones needs to be cheered, cheer for you want but it's best to keep things in perspective sometimes.
