    Interesting to see how Jones fights. His last 2 fights haven't been the best.

    You reckon they make more money on these pay per view UFC fights than they would by signing a deal with, say, Fox and all the money that would come from commercials? Sorry, I ain't paying for this shit.

    Agree about the fight with Texeira but I thought the fight against Gustafsson was impressive because his game plan fell apart, and he still was able to change things up and dominate the latter part of the fight and win. Want him to lose, but length, speed and skill are all on his side against Cormier, who may be the better wrestler, but until the fight with Gustafsson I don't think he'd ever been taken down and Gustafsson is 6'5, Cormier 5'11. 3rd rd win for Jones.

    They have a deal with Fox and they do PPVs. They also make money at the gate, merch, DVDs, etc

    He's facing better competition and evolving as a fighter. He's young and just had a wrestling background. There's a great article about him on Deadspin if you're interested.

    Was a terrific article, shows him as a total hypocrite who fucks anything that moves, smokes weed, drinks alcohol and generally stuff that shows his 'All things are possible through Jesus' quotes after fights is just talk. Still not a bad guy overall, just one who hides the real to further his brand.

    I read that earlier today. That article came of as kind of fanboyish. Someone posted somewhere, maybe in that other thread, about how if Jones was just himself and not so image conscious he would be perceived so much better. I think they're right.
