Personally I'm getting tired of hearing about him.

Where I don't respect Jones' is where he states in his recent UFC Mag interview that he has "too much respect" for Anderson Silva to ever fight him. If that isn't a double standard. Like him or not, Rashad was his mentor coming up. He helped Jones advance to where he is today, and I can always vividly recall Rashad being Jones biggest cheerleader over the years. So you have so much respect for Anderson Silva, who might very well make a complete ***** out of you in the octagon, and you want to "keep your options open" by not fighting him. But Rashad? Who cares...fight him...he only mentored you. Jones clearly only likes fights that suit him...with no true loyalties. So seeing him puss out when simply asked about Silva was stomach-turning. I respect Jones a lot as a fighter and a person...he is talented, and genuinely a good person. But the ego and double standards I am really getting tired of.

In Silva, he'd meet his match athletically, but where Silva wipes the mat with him is in striking and sheer instincts. He's proven against LHW's as well...I think its a disrespect to Silva to say a guy like Jones would beat him. Since....no one has legitimately longer than I can remember.
