I'd like to see info on that as well. I think in Jones' case, image matters to an extent. He can't act like a complete maniac, but as long as he stays on top, that's all that matters to his sponsors. It all comes down to money and whether you're worth it or not.
After being thrown under the bus for 151, I believe he's going to have to make it up in his next several fights for his sponsors, Nike in particular. I doubt they appreciated being smeared along with Jon Jones.
EDIT: This all opinion, btw.
Haha, all opinion on my side too man. No need to disclaim
I agree. I think for the guys at the very top, everything outside being the champion is just at the margin. Imagine it matters more for the guys outside of the top 5.
