    That's a damn travesty of a Start Wars reference. The rest of the world is trying to forget that shit ever happened and you had to bring it up... FOR SHAME!!!!!

    In re-reading this thread I have to say dmc_tim is on fire. Everything you said had me busting a gut laughing.

    No but he did get his ass kicked for fighting too early. Let Count Dooku be your guide.

    Why is it that Mayweather has problems with assaulting his ex-girlfriend or retired early from his sport? I'd assume that it was because he allowed the negativity to seep too far into his consciousness that it became him. It no longer was a role that he played. Attempting to be Scarface is fun and all but you have to draw a line somewhere.
    He tried to do it the right way and yet here we are. Why try hard to appease those that pray on your downfall...? Jones needs to say fuck it and succumb to the path chosen for him by fate. When he tried to be humble and respectful people claimed he was fake. When he tried being himself he was called a douche. Being beloved by everyone is an impossible task so why bother when all you need is family and close friends. People that actually matter because those same people will be your support system through thick and thin.

    Fans and haters come and go like the weather. He needs to prioritize what is important, stay true to himself and let everything else fall into place.

    It's easy and fun to play outsider and "embrace the hate" but it's a very lonely place; especially for a young man who needs constant validation.
    At this point he needs to take the Mayweather approach and embrace the hate. That hatred can easily be used to his advantage if he is willing to commit.

    You want people to either love you or hate you. The people who get stuck in between are generally labled as being uninteresting.

    ^^^lolz at sonnen being one of the "top 5 fighters on the planet." Jones should skip the fight game and go straight into comedy.


    oh, wait...people trying to make it as a comic have to work on short notice. So that's not going to work for him.

    I'm betting that the moment he gets a house full of boos he has second thoughts about the role he's taking. And as someone with very little filter--who constantly needs validation as SimpleDonFryeJack mentioned--he's going to whine about it.

    It will be interesting to see if he develops the spine to stay the course, but I'm betting he plays a Koscheck, or even tries to reinvent himself.
