Regardless of how us hardcores feel about him, it's incredible that Jones isn't a household name at this point. He comes off so well on these types of shows. I remember he was really charismatic and funny on Jay Leno for the Rampage fight, as well.

Today he was playing with the crowd, cracking jokes, and seemed so comfortable in front of the camera. What a terrible job the UFC is doing in promoting him. The kid is a star. Phone Post 3.0

Ignore hardcore fans. They tend to be perfect human beings and are difficult to please. They've all been world champions in their early 20s and showed no signs of arrogance, so they set their expectations of other young champions accordingly. Phone Post 3.0

donniejessup - So he has been on Leno and all of these other shows and you feel he is not being promoted. It doesn't get much more high profile than the Tonight Show.
Yeah and I can name the 2 big shows he's ever been on. 2. These appearances are great but if he's only on these shows once every 2 years who's going to remember him? Phone Post 3.0

I watched it, and Jones seemed likable enough. When Jones tried to show Michael and Kelly some of his moves, he seemed slightly surprised by their athleticism, which leads me to think he doesn't watch the show. Michael fake taps to an armbar to end the segment. Jones' fan base would definitely increase with more appearances like this one, and more eyes on Jones translates to more pay per views for the UFC when he fights. Phone Post 3.0

True but look at the way Dana promoted Ronda's appearances on shows, there is no mention of Jones being on Kelly and Mike on Dana's twitter, only the UFC twitter. Whenever Ronda is doing anything, Dana post it on his twitter, but rarely promotes the appearances of his other fighters on radio or television shows. Maybe he did before but not much recently.

I love when he tells Strahan to get in his guard. "This might look a little funny"

The thing is, he looks good in interviews but then does stuff in life that totally contradict what he said. He seems fake to me. I hope Glover puts his head into the fifth row.

Long ass day at work, but not upset at all. I do appreciate the concern though, thanks for that.
