Jones: I’m not Chuck Liddell


Glover Teixeira's coach the legendary John Hackleman recently appeared on Submission Radio, where he called Jon Jones rude and disrespectful, which is why he believed Jones isn't as beloved as former champion Chuck Liddell. Today Jon Jones finally replied to the comments in an interview with MMAJunkie:

“I’m not Chuck Liddell,” Jones told MMAjunkie. “I’m just me. I’m shamelessly me. I’m really proud of what I’ve been able to do in my career, and I don’t try to compare myself to guys like Chuck or any champion.

“I figure as long as I’m breaking records and doing my part, that’s all that matters.”

When it comes to Jones hate, I'm apathetic.

Quit it with the race stuff. He is flat out unlikable and his skin color has nothing to do with that.

I dunno. Great fighter but he says, "I am seamlessly me." I have doubts that Jon has a whole lot of self vision in this regard.He starts climbing the ranks and when people pay attention he puts on a humble Christian persona. He gets close to the belt (leading up to the Shogun fight) and the humble part completely vanishes. He gets the belt and defends it and the rest of the good guy act vanishes. I don't think he really knows himself in the sense that he doesn't really grasp how he comes off. At the same time to be SO good SO young ... I can't say that wouldn't have made me behave arrogantly.

Agreed, that's fucking stupid. Sounds like he knows the truth already and was waiting for an opportunity to voice his opinion on it.

What kind of response is that?So he doesn't actually think Jon is overlooking Glover and then follows that up with "but if he really is, really really if he really is maybe that why because fans dont love him"Is he drunk?That the definition if Finding an excuse to throw in shittalking for no reason.. And Looking for it.Not believing what is said but still talking shit Based on it. Retarded.

I didn't say he is part of a "group". And I realize he is the best champion right now. Just an opinion on the comments I've been hearing from champs lately. 5-10 years ago, and earlier than that, we never heard champs say things like this. It's just an observation. Just don't like the fact that champs care about breaking records nowadays, that's all.
