Because he's beating the crap out of their favorite fighters. Same reason people hate Silva, and GSP people hate greatness.

Because he's too good and he knows it.

People seem to hate dominant fighters.

im a huge Bones Jones fans, but i see some haters hating for a couple reasons..

a) supposedly he was a snitch as a kid or he said he told on stoners... something like that, i can see a Diaz fan hating on him for that :)
b) while being very polite he's very arrogant, i hear people complaining about how he said he knew Machida was out while holding him up but still held the choke then just dropped him

there's more but frankly i like the guy and dont think its justified but to each their own i guess

I followed Jon since his first couple of fights in the UFC. He went from this polite soft spoken kid to a douche bag prick.

He's a phony, and I don't like phonies.

Most of his fans now are bandwagon jumpers.

Because he's beating the crap out of their favorite fighters. Same reason people hate Silva, and GSP people hate greatness.

People hate GSP because he beats up their favorite fighters? I didn't know Josh Koscheck and Jake Shields were my favorite fighters. :lol1:

Come on man don't resort to a casual fan reason. Most of us here aren't just casual fans.

People hate GSP because he's generally a boring fighter and you can never expect a finish anymore.

If you said this on the UG you'd get a 10 page thread with GSP fan boys screaming IT'S TECHNIQUE!

Jon JOnes is not what I consider a prick, then what are the Diaz bro's? Jones is always exciting to watch and damn good at what he does. I dont know why people despise the guy, bunches pusssies if you ask me

Another big reason is Jon Jones has a size and reach advantage over everybody.

People think he should be fighting at heavyweight... which I don't get because he makes the weight fair and square.

I think it's because he comes off as a fake ass dude. He can't decide weather he wants to be the humble sportsman or the ****y douchebag. Atleast with the Diaz bros. you get the same thing all the time...

The thing with me is if you're gonna be a prick, then be a prick.

I like that the Diaz bros are pricks. I like that Rashad is a ****y guy. I like that Overeem is a humble guy. They don't hide who they are. They're not fake and phony.

That's just my personal reason though, but I know I'm not the only one who feels this way.

I asked my friend this same question. "Why do you hate Jon Jones so much??" and he admitted that he didn't like how Jon Jones is beating up all the legends. The thing is people grew up watching Rampage Jackson, Shogun, and Machida. And when this new kid comes in and starts dominating them, he becomes hated. I then asked him, "Ok, but what if he started out in Pride and was around back in the day." and he said "Yeah I'll probably respect him more then." Lol he wants Anderson Silva to move up in weight and kick his asss. Although I don't know how Anderson Silva will do in LHW, that would be a dream match.

I don't hate him, but his fans are very annoying and I think the way he avoided Rashad was very questionable.

They were supposed to fight, but Jones said he was injured, so Rashad agreed to fight a replacement. Then Jones said he actually wasn't injured after all and fought Rampage.
