I felt it would jinx his success and it probably did.

I guess I can try and see the bright side of over-hyping a fighter who I'm not a fan of. When he loses, especially in a dominant fashion, it's the greatest feeling in the world.

This, I agree with wholeheartedly. Like I wrote earlier in this thread, I wouldn't be surprised if Jones lost sooner rather than later given the comp in the division. MMA is just too unpredictable to make any proclamations about someone being unbeatable. There are too many different ways to lose.

Jones could be one of the greats. Only time will tell.

i hear he'll be a great champion, and someone who'll be the champ for a long time too.
in some people's minds he has already defeated everyone else in the light-heavyweight division.

do you think that maybe some of us are getting a little carried away, possibly jumping the gun a bit?
No. Even if he was to lose his next fight, it would not mean that he isn't a stud.

He has dominated everyone his way and looked like a performer while doing so, no matter who the opponent was.
