Go Behind-the-Scenes of Jon Jones’ Cavalcade of Interviews on ESPN [VIDEO]

(For the last time, I don’t know where any WMD’s are, and would appreciate if you stopped asking me questions taken from Chael’s Twitter account.)

For those of you who still think the life of a UFC champion is little more than punching dudes and collecting a paycheck, it might sadden you to see this behind-the-scenes video of Jon Jones‘ day at ESPN studios, which contained no less than a hundred and fifteen interviews over the course of a few hours. Seriously, Jones spent more time answering questions under a heat lamp than a person of interest, who he is ironically beginning to look like with that beard.

All kidding aside, the pure number of interviews Jones has to deal with in a day is probably a facet of his personality that many people don’t consider when lobbing their hate at him. When you’re trying not to look stupid hour after hour — and in front of millions of people nonetheless — you will eventually jumble your words, your thoughts, and have said words and thoughts misinterpreted by the strangers who are interviewing you left and right. It’s not exactly an easy process to get used to, especially when you lack the freakish confidence of a Chael Sonnen, a Floyd Mayweather, or a Deion Sanders, and you can see that Bones still gets a little nervous when trying to take it all in. Hence why he could not correctly answer which NFL-playing brother of his had which birthday, or what bone connects your shoulder to your elbow (which honestly would have stumped 99% of American audiences if Jay Leno was the one asking the question.)

We’re not saying that Jones should be completely forgiven for his repeatedly poor choices of words, we’re just saying that, given enough time spent stepping on eggshells and answering the same mind-numbing questions over and over, most of us would probably comes off as unlikable too.

Video after the jump.

So what do you think, Potato Nation; does a look into an average day in the life of JBJ make you feel any less resentment for him? Or did the manufacturers at the industrial warehouse where you were constructed forget to implant you with an empathy chip?

One thing’s for sure, I never want to be so famous that I have a guy following me around 24/7 just to update my Twitter status.

-J. Jones

"you will eventually jumble your words, your thoughts" You don't jumble words and thoughts when you speak for yourself. Your opinions and believes do not change with a different wording to the same question. Neither does the date of your brothers birthday.

He is trying to say what he thinks should be said or say it in a way to make him look better, not what he really feels.
If he does not know himself then he should not be expressing a false image. Refuse to answer, say you don't know or else speak your mind. It can't hurt any more than verbally dicknailing himself repeatedly (e.g. Don't worry about me getting a DUI... then get's a DUI).

Oh no. CP are rebecoming JJ nuthuggers. Will JJ balls be able to sustain such force?
I guess the quicker we start loving JJ the faster CP can turn the hate on Anderson Silva.
Next up: JJ sues reporters for making him jumble his words and smashing his Bentley next to a whorehouse. Poor guy.

Yeah, it's the interpretations of interviewers that make Jone's statements read like a double-dick sandwich with a side of potato salad. That's it, Scooby-Doo. The case is solved. ha
