It's gotta be rough being so young and have so many expectations to live up to. I think the best thing for his career is a decisive loss sooner rtather than later.
As far as Bader goes, I think he is the first and so far only credible opponent to actually challenge Bones.
See that makes no sense to me at all. Look at Cain Velasquez right now, the guy has had less professional fights then Jones has. His career path is very similar in terms of competition he was fighting right up until his big test which was Nog and look what happened. He hasn't had "the shit kicked out of him" in order for him to put everything together.
As soon as Jones gets a bigger name under his belt I see a very similar path. Then all the haters will believe as they do in Cain.
