Jon Jones is utterly trolltastic

I am beginning to think that Jon Jones might just be the smartest man in MMA today.  Chael Sonnen is the master of the quick-witted WWE style promos. He knows how to sell a fight, but Jones is operating on a whole different level. He has raised trolling to extravagant, extraordinary, implausible and simply dazzling heights. Jones’ brilliance is beautifully trolltastic. That is...
