Jon Jones Happy To Finally Get Audience Cheers
“It was just great to have the crowd on my side again. It has been a long time, since I’ve had cheers. I figured it would be that way so I said let me really embrace this, let me really give this audience some entertainment. So it was just great. I was living it up. I figured Ray Lewis would be there, a lot of Ravens would be there, so I was just playing it up, and practiced that dance all day, and aced it, I hear. I haven’t seen it yet. Ray was happy and, yeah, I’m happy.”
“The people of Baltimore, they still Arthur, they still respect him a lot. Arthur gets a great reception here… It’s great to see that the love is still there. And obviously it trickled into my world, too – I got a lot of respect, and a lot of cheers, which made me feel amazing. I really do appreciate it. I mean the boos I’ve learned to live with, but it’s so rewarding to get some love and respect for once.”
At Saturday night’s press conference, UFC light-heavyweight champion, Jon Jones discussed his reception from the audience in Baltimore.
Often Jones is boo’d and the crowd usually favors his opponent, but at UFC 172 the crowd turned around on Jones.
