jones is not quite a superstar, even after all his accomplishments.

too much of an arrogant / fake vibe, depending on who you ask.

the UFC is pretty desperate for a superstar right now, doe.

When you're on top, there's envy.

MMA fans seem to hate all the guys who's on top (or were). GSP = too boring, always fight on the ground. Silva = too cocky. I'm a casual observer so I dont know much about the rules of conduct within the MMA community.

Bones is the most famous person out of the 607 since Rod Serling, so he'll always be my dude.

UFC needs a new Brock Lesnar. I know people hated him but he put UFC on the mainstream map. Lesnar, Tyson(boxing)...guys who are considered outsiders tend to bring in the biggest crowd.

I never understood gsp's appeal and drawing power. I watch almost every event but haven't watched a card he has headlined in years

well, jones has been a real superbrat behind the scenes for much of his life. there's no way to disguise that from other fighters over time.

the fans are moreso picking up on the public persona and the public mistakes that jones has made. not deal breakers, but the reason why he's not bigger than he could be. but the good news is that he's still very young and maybe, kinda seems to be growing up.

i have nothing against jones as a human being, so i'll be happy if he can get there.

...

lesnar is definitely, badly needed right now. even as a quasi-freak show. some guys, like chuck liddell and tito ortiz, just had that magnetism.

at the same time, ronda rousey did something pretty cool just now-- she directly embraced the role of heel, saying that she doesn't give a shit about applause. ordinarily not a very cool thing to say, but it fits her like a glove given the way her life has gone. jones might become a superstar if he was willing to do the same, but i think he's too sensitive to do so.

...

GSP-- my understanding of the dude's fame is that UFC fans got to follow him from his days as an undercard scrub all the way to becoming a dominant champion. he was also very exciting at one time and went through a fall and a comeback, and so fans had a chance to understand and forgive exactly why he changed his style so much.

Didn't realize it was in Baltimore. I might have to go.

I only went to one. It was a smaller card. The first Diaz Maynard fight, it was in my town. think I paid between 40-70 but I was very far back.

No shit? I also went to that event.

Haha. The harbor is pretty chill, though, reminds me of Germany.
