I don’t get your point, Jones. This is like that reverse racism you hear about. Why do you have to band together? Why can’t you just be friends with everyone, or not friends? This seems all so very childish and weird, much like Jon Jones. So, I guess the shoe fits, right?
Talking at a UFC 165 press conference, Jones had this to say about Cormier (I’m a poet and didn’t know it):
“To be honest with you, I don’t think Daniel Cormier really deserves a big fight, I don’t respect him as a person. I think fighting me would be an opportunity of a lifetime for him. I don’t think I have much to gain from beatingDaniel Cormier because no one knows who he is, and he hasn’t really proved much.”
“He seems to really not like me and be a big hater of mine. It’s sad, considering we’re both African-American and there’s not many of us in the sport. We should try to find a common bond. We don’t need to be friends, but we should at least respect each other. It’s pathetic that me and Rashad have such a bad relationship and me and Daniel have such a bad relationship.”
Jon Jones could be the next Tyson, but instead he chooses to just be this weird guy.
