just in case anybody hasn't heard this interview yet:
a few minutes in the says that he can't take the risk of putting his career and livelyhood on the line. are you fucking kidding me? every time this guy opens his mouth he says something dumber than last time. jones is the LHW CHAMPION! putting his career and record on the line to defend his belt is EXACTLY what he is supposed to be doing!
fighters get paid to fight, and with that comes the risk of losing. apparently he thinks he should be able to hand-pick opponents now that he is champ. go talk to any other UFC champion, and they'll tell you that they'll fight whoever the UFC puts in front of them at any time because they want to test themselves.
jones has skills for sure, but after hearing this i think it's quite clear that he doesn't have the heart of a champion and doesn't think like one. he needs to learn to just STFU because every time he tries to explain himself he makes it look even worse.
