Could Jon Jones be mixed martial arts’ Floyd Mayweather?

September 17, 2013

Monday on SiriusXM Fight Club, Ricky Bones outlined a plan for UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Jon Jones to catapult to super-stardom in mixed martial arts.

I really feel that if Jon Jones embraced the whole ‘Team Money’ philosophy, he would be a much bigger draw in mixed martial arts. Because again, like Floyd Mayweather does in boxing, he gets all our money. He gets the money of the people who love watching him fight, he gets the money of the people who love watching him as a ‘tactician-er’ inside the ring, but he also gets the fans who hate his guts and want to see him get his a** kicked. … If Jon Jones embraced that bad -oy image, he could be a much bigger star in mixed martial arts.

SiriusXM Fight Club airs Monday-Thursday at 4 pm ET on SiriusXM Sports Zone, Sirius channel 92 and XM channel 208.
