There are lots of areas in life to gather inspiration, but for UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones, not surprisingly, he finds inspiration in a peer.

Although he’s been around the fight game a bit longer and risen higher up the ranks, Jones finds inspiration in the form of UFC women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey.

    Ronda Rousey this. Ronda Rousey that. Ronda Rousey is everywhere now.

    Well… except in a octagon across from Chris Cyborg. That’s the one place she won’t go. But everywhere else…

      Ummmm…..one is the UFC champ at 135 and the other the Invicta champ at 145. How about Cyborg actually stay in the UFC for longer than a day and then we’ll talk? This is a tired subject until then.

        I realize you want to motorboat the woman but after 5 years of running away, Ronda’s the coward.

        • silent_nick

          5 years. Okay. She’s been running from Cyborg since 2 years before her pro debut.

            Do you guys just make s–t up? It’s on cyborg to do the right things in order for this fight to go down. Once again I’ll explain. 1) make weight . 2) fight without juicing. 3) Dana has made it clear if she fights and wins 2-3 fights at 135 and tests clean before and after the fight. He will meet her and her agent at the bargaining table. Those are not extreme conditions to meet. So if she gets it done the ufc will have to sign her and make the fight. And as I said before. She will not dominate at 135 and clean of PEDS.

      She called out cyborg at strikeforce. Cyborg wouldn’t give her a shot. Those are cyborgs words in an interview last month in fighters only magazine. And that was at 145. Everybody wants to blame Ronda and Dana. The person holding up this fight is cyborg. She just got her ass kicked last month . It’s been proven by her win loss record. When she juices. She’s a beast. When she’s clean. She’s a pretty good fighter. She’s training and trying to cut the weight the right way. If she does and she is clean when they fight. Ronda Wil submit her. Sh3s an average fighter when she plays by the rules.

        Translation: But I love Ronda and make up any excuse for her being coward.

      • David Huenecke

        She got knocked out in a kickboxing match not an mma match. Theres a big difference.

    Translation, Jones is ten times the fighter but he wants to know why Ronda is still the most popular fighter in the UFC. The hype is envious, not inspiring.

    Should have a sound track set to the song “Tap That”…
