This is so obviously Bisping brown nosing Dana and the UFC. I cant be dealing with that.
Not all fighters. As we have seen many fighters turn down a title shot just recently.
And every Champion except Jones would have accepted the fight in that scenario. It would be foolish to think that Bisping would be any different. Hell i cant see any fighters in the upper echelon do what Jones did.
I think if you look at this a bit more realistically you would see the same thing.
And lets not be silly.. Jones didnt turn down a fight on 8 days notice. Jones had 3 months to prepare for a fight. Jones turned down a fight because of an opponent replacement and he wanted 3 more weeks to "prepare." as if 3 months wasnt enough preparation. Ofcourse Chael needs to be studied for 4 weeks since he has such a versatile style and all.
what a joke...
Wait i got it!!
Jones didnt train wrestling at all in his MIXED MARTIAL ARTS training camp. So he had to rub the cob webs off.
