Jon “Bones” Jones: “I am not going to apologize if I am a little full of myself”

The light heavyweight champ tries to campaign for his dignity once again ahead of his UFC 152 bout with Vitor Belfort next weekend in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, this time by not apologizing for being “a little” full of himself but rather telling fans over and over again that he is the nicest person ever.

Jones, speaking via MMAWeekly, said:

“I am not going to say I embraced the role of being a villain because I am not. I am not a villain; I am not a bad person. I pride myself off of inspiring others. For all the people that think I am cocky, it’s like if you really listen to what I talk about, if you talk to me about fighting you may hear something that is a little arrogant because, right now, I train so hard to not even get hit, let alone talk about rousing a fight. So it is like I love this sport so much, I own it to myself to think of myself in the highest regard, so I am not going to apologize if I am a little full of myself when it comes to MMA.”

“I am the nicest person ever to everyone who has ever met me. I’m the nicest person to people. Every day I walk into Jackson’s gym and I hand out boxes of equipment. I order stuff all the time for my teammates and just give it out. I just give it to people. I am like the nicest person ever.”
