If you only knew the power of the dark side...

What's up fight fans! I'm the Willy Wonka remake of mixed martial arts, Tommy Toe Hold, bringing you another exclusive episode of The Tommy Toe Hold Show (TTTHS) for SB Nation. Today's topic: the many sides of Jon Bones Jones.

Sports have been and will always be about people. Until we are inevitably replaced with robots. And because sports are about people the personality of an athlete can go a long way to solidify or derail their popularity, and there is no more polarizing figure in MMA than Jon Jones. Arguably the greatest light heavyweight of all time, Jones seems to divide people. You either love him or hate him. Personally, I find glimpses of JBJ's personality that are pure entertainment. He's smart. He's witty. He can troll with the best of them. And then he takes it all back. So on today's show, I try to get Jon to embrace Jon.
