I like Jon Jones.

I think he is an incredibly impressive fighter as well as an impressive young man.

He has accomplished an extraordinary amount in his short time in this life, and I think he's handling his success and his fame incredibly well.

I feel like most of his haters are probably just jealous.

Flame the **** on!

    Gawd I hate when people say "Haters are just jealous" because it's never the case (Also because it makes me think of the people who use the word "swag" and a dozen hashtags after everything they type) and if it was wouldn't I hate all successful people not just this 1 particular guy?

    I'm actually liking Jon a lot more since the TUF season. He's stopped trying so hard to be Mr. Perfect but the reason I didn't like him was not because he was successful but because he was obviously putting on an act in front of the cameras and it came off so bad.

    Edit: Also, when he stops fighting Middleweights and takes on a few Heavyweights he will get a lot more respect

    I feel the same way.

    People love to hate on him sometimes but he is an amazing fighter and a great guy. I don't see anyone beating him anytime soon.

    He's made some mistakes in the past and he'll be the first to tell you he's not perfect but I think he has done very well for someone in his shoes.

    Cant get over the interview when he said he used to snitch on the guys who smoked weed on some hall monitor ****... I will never be a fan of him. But I do think the either your a fanboy or hater towards any fighter thing is ridiculous.. I respect JBJ's skills as a fighter but the **** is strong with him IMO.

    I try not to get involved in the personal stuff when it comes to fighters. He's a great fighter who always brings it when he fights. However, he has **** up a few times in his personal life, whether you like him or not.

    Good to see you back on the forums @ColdWorkKen! Nice gif btw.

    I remember hearing that also but he did say he was a kid at the time and was raised into a very religious household. I am a daily weed smoker and that doesn't bother me. I have done a lot of stuff as a kid that I would never do again. I really don't think he would do that nowadays. He can get emotional and do stupid things at times but who doesn't.

    Aside from a few incidents I think he has been a pretty respectable and genuine person.

    Yeah, he has handled his success and fame very well. Especially when he got blitzed out drunk and wrapped his Bentley around a telephone pole with multi women (not his wife) riding along with him.

    I like Jon Jones too. Been a fan of his since I saw him fight Bonnar.

    Jones will go down as the greatest LHW ever.

    Almost. He was somehow able to channel the sobercuban-curse into a toe injury in a fight he still won. If I had hyped him and not just said he'd win his whole leg might have come off

    I am a Jones fan but he does bring a lot of this hate upon himself. Jealousy is rarely the cause for hate but is usually used as an excuse for fans to not listen to the criticism given to their favorite fighter. I have been hearing this from GSP fans for years.
    On November 16th Hendricks became the real undisputed champion.

    He handled his success better than I would have at that age. I can only imagine the **** I would have gotten in to. He handled his mid twenties better than me and I didn't even have the money or fame.
