Every Wednesday, Administrative Editor Jordan Breen welcomes a member of the mixed martial arts media into “Press Row” on the Sherdog.com blog. This week, Breen is joined by MMAJunkie contributor Mike Bohn.
With Jon Jones' seventh defense of the UFC light heavyweight title upcoming against Glover Teixeira at UFC 172, Breen and Bohn discuss Jones' difficulties in painting himself in a flattering light. The two investigate Jones' myriad social media disasters, including his recent Instagram nightmare, and the radically different ways he deals with the MMA media versus mainstream media appearances like “Live with Michael and Kelly.” Also up for debate: whether or not “Jonny Bones” already is the best light heavyweight in history and the oft-repeated question of when if ever he'll blossom into a pay-per-view megastar.
Breen and Bohn also discuss former UFC light heavyweight champion Chuck Liddell's public criticisms of Jones, why his critiques are statistically invalid, Liddell and fellow UFC Hall of Famer Matt Hughes as UFC ambassadors and the irony of Rich Franklin being offered a One FC job.
Grab your credential and get a seat in “Press Row.”
