jones keeps digging the hole deeper... someone from his inner circle should pull him to the side and tell him to stop talking.
wonder if nike is shitting their pants? i'm sure they didnt sign up for someone to endorce their product that's this disliked
Yeah NIKE needs jones to have as many fans as possible.
I wonder how this will affect Jones fan-base?
I KNOW the hardcore MMA community on the interwebz is growing really sick Jones and his ways, but what about casual fans (the ones who provide UFC with most business)? Will they hear of this, or the many other times Jones ate his own foot?
Will casuals care once they see Jones mangle a few more of best fighters in his division?
I really don't think this will have any impact on the casual fan base. I could be wrong, but I am guessing that they really don't know any of the behind the scenes stuff that goes on leading up to the fights, they just show up to the bar on saturday to watch some dudes knock each other out.
Jon Jones knocks people out in spectacular fashion. The hardcores will still watch because they're going to watch MMA anyway, and they know Jones will put on a show even if they hate him.
For instance, I had a casual fan, but relatively knowledgeable and watches most of the main cards, ask me who won the fights yesterday. He didn't even know that the card was cancelled.
