Does anyone else get creeped out by the way Greg Jackson talks?

I was just watching a fight the other day and the round ends Condit goes to his corner and Greg pops up, he pulls his shorts open and holds it with his hand as he starts sweet talking him in a really weird manner kinda like the old guy from family guy.

Also he always seems to recruit the younger fighters in his camp and always has a keen eye for them like Jones, and all the recent snuggling of all the young talent coming from Russia. Is it weird that he gave solo lessons to Yoshiro Akiyama ? i think so.

Also if any of you are keeping up with fightmaster the Bellator version of TUF theres alot more creepy Greg Jackson behaviour you cannot avoid seeing, especially as the coaches were being selected by the fighters.

You know im not surprised fighters under him like Jones are hanging around with underage children in the backseat of their Bentleys.

    yeah but its wrong because these younger fighters are looking for good trainers and coaches, Greg knowingly attracts such aspiring fighters and exploits them.

    Greg Jackson is the Jim Jones of MMA. Nobody else could convince fighters like Condit, Guida and Sanchez to be boring pointfighters that are scared to engage.

    Somebody needs to put a stop to his cult before he persuades more of our favorite fighters to drink the Kool-aid.

    at the end of the second round against Rory, Greg bollocked the crap out of Carlos, he went on to stop him right before the bell. Just sayin'

    I'm a Condit fan. He's an exciting fighter and I've always liked his style....

    But the Diaz fight was a disgrace. As was Guida's performance against Maynard and Sanchez' joke of a "win" over Gomi. How Jackson convinced those three warriors to completely abandon their styles and avoid exchanging is beyond me.

    There's a difference between gameplanning and point-fighting that Greg abuses, to the detriment of his fighters and the sport.

    agreed, also its not surprising that most fighters and even fan favorites like Guida, Condit, GSP, Jones when they moved to Greg Jackson they eventually got a huge hate base.

    It's up to the fighter. Most of these guys are fighters at heart but once they start getting the taste of the possibility that they can make more money and get title shots, they are willing to do what will make them win as opposed to just being exciting. I think it works for guys like GSP who is already rich and famous and a champion who always win, but if you use the boring, safe, style of fighting and still lose, then it doesn't work for you and you'll stay in the company longer even if you lose by fighting exciting fights.
    What it comes down to for a lot of guys is the money. They have families to support so they probably figure if I win some fights, by whatever method, i'll make more money and give them a better life. Guys like Condit are smart, if boring fighting won't win him fights, he'll go back to fighting since he knows that'll win him fans and Dana's favour.
