Jones: I'm not here to be loved


Following the cancellation of UFC 151 after Henderson injured his knee and UFC Lighteavyweight champion Jon Jones refused to take a last minute fight with Chael Sonnen, many called Jones "the most hated man in MMA."

Jones reply to the charge was blunt, and true.

Vincent Garcia ‏@vince_mcman
@JonnyBones do you believe after this ufc 151 accident that you're the most hated UFC champ in history?

@vince_mcman I'm not here to be loved, I'm here to be dominant

You are delusional lolShogun:- Effortlessly ran straight through a PRIME Rampage like a hot machete slicing through butterMade an elite opponent like Rampage look like a TOTAL AMATEUR-Went to BATTLE with a PRIME Noguria(One of the greatest fights of all time)Over came adversity. Had to dig deep to win, and at just 23, was not only proving his world class skills, but his unbreakable heart and will to win. Was amazing! Shogun was special.-Ran through a top 10 Overeem.Escaped his go to submission move, then went on to literally pound the shit out of him- Ran straight through the #1 ranked Arona, while making a PRIME Arona look like a TOTAL AMATEURNot just that, Shogun ran through Overeem and Arona IN THE SAME NIGHT TOOShogun ran through the top of his weight class at the time in the span of 4 months. Shogun accomplished about the same as Jones( many will argue he accomplished MORE) but Shogun did it in less time ectSo I have already proven your statement wrongThe thing is, All of Shogun opponents were in THEIR PRIMES, and were at their best too. We can't say the same about Jones opponentsIt doesn't stop there, Shogun showed he could dominate, and he showed he could over come major adversity to win TOUGH fights too. Shogun showed it all (another advantage)Shogun was something else.He wasn't human lol.If you witnessed it live,Sogun completely set the MMA world a blaze. You are missing that context. At the time, Rampage, Nogeria, Overeem, Arona were the very top of the weight class. I still think a 23 year old Shogun had a better year then a 23 year old Jones, and was the better fighterKeep in mind, Shogun WAS running through the top of the food chain WITH NO size or reach advantages,like Jones always employsUNLIKE Jones,Shogun was actually winning fights with skill,technique,mental fortitude,and toughnessThat's huge

Jones' run is more impressive to me than Shogun at 23. Shogun didn't fight the top guy at the time. Arguably, the top two guys.

Why do people keep saying this? Hello, Shogun at 23. Ring a bell?Regardless, Jones turned down an easy fight with Sonnen.Jones would have crushed Sonnen instead he turned it down.
