              When I came into the sport newly it always baffled how the fans could like someone so fake and pretentious like Jon and boo a Representative of the sport and a “Good Guy” like DC I became a fan of Daniel by watching him throw Gus in the air like a ragdpll I am chubby and not the tallest so it inspires me so much once he retires everyone will realize what a mistake they made siding with that pretentious little slug.

                        Fuck Jones, he's a piece of shit who used roids his whole career, every fight he tries to blind people with nonstop eye pokes, he's a Coke head who pulls a hit and run on a pregnant woman but for some fucked up reason fans still support that scumbag who can't get through a fight without getting popped for ped's, and DC who doesn't cheat and isn't a complete scumbag and a class act gets booed by dickhead fans, it's a fucking joke, DC is a real champion and great person

                          I loved the moment when DC was crying like a baby after GOAT Jones beated him😂.

                          And recently when Stipe punctured his body with legendary body shots😂

                                      The fact tha DC gets booed, it’s soo beyond me and makes soo little sense, I cannot begin to fathom it.... I feel it’s just one of those RETARD human flaws that shows itself every now and again. It’s like as simple and retarded as they just hate, to hate... AND THATS IT!!!!! It’s moronic, loser, cattle, mob mentality at its best, that gets its dick rock hard because the haters are doing something in unison, and that’s HATING. There’s absolutely no rhyme or reasoning.... its just doing it to do it. If anything, Jon should be hated because he’s such a phony doosh! You can clearly watch him try on different personalities. He’s immature and doesn’t know how to be himself at all. Which is common with a lot of people, and that’s not a reason alone to dislike a guy, but when you are a horseshit artist and talk about religion and shit, you can’t be a coke sniffin, car ramming, hit n running, double talking dooosh!!!! His talents and skills are the best we’ll ever see in the octagon but he has no personality!
