Greg Jackson: "Jon Jones! Go Check on Lyoto, Get Some Fans!"

First LastCorrespondent IDecember 11, 2011

UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones successfully defend his title for the second time on Saturday, and the victory came over a former champion in Lyoto Machida, who many considered his toughest and trickiest test to date.

After a rocky first round for Jones, many thought Machida would be on his way to figuring out the unsolved puzzle. That was until "The Dragon" was cut open and put to sleep with a standing guillotine in the second round. Jones casually walked away, leaving an unconscious opponent fall to the canvas.

Despite being almost perfect in his MMA career, Jones hasn't been accepted by the majority of the fans.  

It seems as if he is unsure of what fans expect from him, and that maybe he is trying to act like someone that he thinks they want him to be instead of being himself. It's all part of constructing an image that most fans can accept, and it's going to be hard to do considering the dominance and ease at which he is walking through fan-favorite fighters.

In this video, Jones' trainer, Greg Jackson, is heard telling Jones to go check on his opponent and to "get some fans." It might not be well-received, but it shows at how the people involved with Jones are trying to help build his image.

Both Jones and Jackson have been together for most of the 24-year-old's career and through his biggest fights, including those with Mauricio "Shogun" Rua, Quinton Jackson and Ryan Bader.
