    Also ugly white girls. Ugly white girls are also Jon Jones’ weakness.

  2. gvd says:

    Well shit. Jones has submitted at least 2 black belts (lyoto and vitor). Give this man a black belt already.

    • BX81 says:

      Yeah not how that works hommie. You gotta earn it. Submitting 2 black belts is impressive when you’re not a black belt your self but it’s more than that. Vitor caught him in a simple arm bar, bones with stood it despite the pain. This goes toward the experience needed to achieve that level of bjj.

    • koonta poonta says:

      Wow, Graham Van Dyke. You need to actually train BJJ. I don’t want to write my explanation out, so instead, I’ll be lazy and quote someone else who wrote about this issue recently: “I do not think him (Jon Jones) submitting two black belts makes him a jiu jitsu black belt. that just means he beat two fighters competing in MMA. A jiu jitsu black belt isn’t about who you beat, but an accumulation of knowledge and experience over time and demonstrated within that discipline.”

      • gvd says:

        Ok, let me rephrase that. If Frank Mir can submit Tim Sylvia and get a black belt, Jon Jones deserves a black belt too. (It was a joke)

        • koonta poonta says:

          Haha. Well, poopty doopty man.

          Of course you were just joking around. There’s no way you were being serious about Jon Jones deserving a black belt. (sarcasm)

  3. front kick says:

    also don’t forget alchohol and bentleys would probably be on that list as well

  4. Norman Jayden says:

    and Chael Sonnen has been training with Vinny Magalhaes, he could maybe submit Jon Jones

  5. Gargoyle Wrestling says:

    That’s scary!!! His weakness is jitz Huh? I can hardly wait for Jones to put the hurt on Silva. It’s about time Silva gets a face that looks like Rua’s after Hendo. He’s due. Law of averages dictate it.

  6. Dee says:

    He must have gone in there and got whooped. LOL IT happens to us all.

  7. Rodriguez says:

    When I first started bjj, we had a no GI day. I remember watching my friend spar with a black belt (he was a white belt) and submitted him. Then my instructor said, that’s the thing about no GI, anything can happen on the mat. So I only imagine in MMA where you have to defend punches, kicks, ect., it is easier for anyone to land it.
