PostSubject: Jones: Who cares if I'm fake? I win fights   Wed Dec 31, 2014 2:02 pm

While he's not going to suddenly become Chael Sonnen or Conor McGregor to unleash verbal abuse on opponents, Jones is no longer as concerned about how he's perceived in the public light.

"I just learned to let go. When I read my comments on Twitter and Instagram, I realize I really do inspire people and touch people and people really do appreciate who I am as a martial artist. Then when I read some of the people who leave me negative messages, it's always so dumb. It's like 'dude, you're fake'. I've been hearing that I'm fake for so many years. It's like who cares If I'm fake? I win fights," Jones said on Monday. "That's what I'm here to do. I'm not here to win you over with my personality. I'm here to fight. That's ultimately my job."

That doesn't make any sense though. He's completely contradicting himself!

Quote :

So this is basically an admission that he's fake and he puts up a front. OK, that's fine. He's a professional athlete, it's his choice to promote himself however he chooses, except.....

Quote :
I'm not here to win you over with my personality. I'm here to fight.

OK, wait...... so which is it?! You put up a front and it shouldn't matter because your job is to win fights, or you're not being fake because you're not here to win us over with your personality?

I'm not really sure he knows what point it is he's trying to make here.

His words and his actions match. He is a confused young man, who clearly has yet to mature and/or figure out who he truly is... the worst part about it IMO is that he doesn't seem to care that he is so conflicted on multiple levels. He likes his $, his belt, liquor and whores... that is a certainty

i think 2015 will provide us with a completely different jon jones. i think he is going to take to the media and fans like he is a bad boy or something like that. in the beginning he tried to play the i love god role and it didnt work. then he went to the nice guy role. that didnt work and now he is going to change his role as a bad boy...

I think it would suite him best to just go the Maywether route. He is the only current Champ with that ability really. No one else has the resume to do it.
