Jones: It's MMA drama, it's not real life

by Steven Marrocco & Matt Erickson | source:

"It's really just a sport," said the 25-year-old Jones after an open workout in support of the event. "It's MMA drama – it's not real life stuff. Ultimately, my job is to entertain people, and I think this whole situation has definitely done that in some ways."

"At the end of the day, I'm the one who has to live with the decisions I've made," Jones said. "I really don't think they're as valuable to anyone as they are to me. I'm the one who's been doing this for five years and eating healthy and going to bed early and skipping out on great times when everyone else is out doing what they want to do. I'm the one that's dedicated himself to being the champion."

"To be honest, I'm a young guy, and I really believe I'm pretty fast, too," Jones said. "I think there's a lot of things about my game that people really overlook. To consider me a slow-twitch athlete would be inaccurate."

  I think that's exactly what he's doing. Probably pays better but he's really not that good at it yet. Time will tell. Cindy

He's embracing Islam. After he beats Vitor, expect him to cut an epic heel promo where he turns his back on Jesus and America and annouces his support for the Muslim Brotherhood.

He's honestly terrible at it. He would benefit from paul heyman's training on it imo.

Well, it's definitely "real life" to all the fighters that didn't get paid because they couldn't fight on the 151 card. Not to mention the fans that took time off work and bought plane tickets and hotel rooms in Vegas. Also "real life" to all the lowly workers for the event and it's preparation. The cancelation of an event that generates $50 million in revenue effects more than just Dana and Lorenzo. But I guess if you're a aspergers half-wit that thinks the world revolves around your jesus-cock, then that's all just "mma drama".

Wow I knew the UG was full of a bunch of women, but you all are taking it to a new level. It's like you go out each day and seek any little thing to bitch and whine about. Misery does indeed love company I guess.I'd say it's a safe bet that by making 205 consistently and as lean as Jones is, he eats clean and he stated it in that article above. I'm sure shortly one of you will search the internet long enough to find him eating a slice of pizza so you can start a new thread about how fake he is and how he has been caught in another lie. You all need hobbies.

He was taking those girls to church , you assholes. And the reason he blew over, is cause he got excited and wanted to drink the blood of Christ before hand, cus he was so excited to go to church.Jeez, can't you see he is an perfect Christian, but America and the Obama administration is persecuting his religious beliefs.God bless your holy beard jones.
