Overall lost millions of dollars. Only positive for the UFC is they got a lot of publicity from it (seriously, when does ESPN ever want to bring on an MMA fighter on the show ASAP?).
Yea, i meant overall its a big hit - it all adds up to a huge hit to them. All down to Jones not wanting to fight a out of shape 185lber too....
