Tommy Toe Hold Show: Jon Jones and Jon Jones talk JBJ ahead of UFC 182

New, 18 comments

A tale of two Jons ...

What's up fight fans? Welcome to another special edition of the Tommy Toe Hold Hold Show (TTTHS) brought to you by SB Nation! I'm the UFC 151 of mixed martial arts Tommy Toe Hold.

Today: Two JBJs!

Jon Jones is one of the most divisive figures in mixed martial arts. Some people love him. Some people hate him. Nearly everyone agrees on this talent. A lot of people feel he's fake or should embrace the villain role instead of always fighting against it.

I have a theory though, and that is that Jones is "fake" because it makes people angry. He does it on purpose. It's the ultimate troll. People would accept if he went full villain, but in staying flexible in his bad guy role he's somehow managed to make even more people angry!

This is my ode to the awesomeness that is the two sides of "JBJ" ahead of his showdown with Daniel Cormier tomorrow night (Jan. 3, 2015) at UFC 182, which takes place at MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
