It doesnt do the UFC any good to chop the legs out from possibly their biggest star, because he doesnt take a last minute replacement fight. There was nothing to gain for his career. I think its organizational suicide to do that to your biggest star.
Biggest Star, so what? UFC is all the fighters who step up for fighting, not only Champions. A couple of losses could end real quick this "Star Status". Promising athlete, great achievements so far, but still begining. Remember the Machida era? Didn't take off.
I understand Jones reasons, but those are not the reasons of a fighter, not mention a champion, even less the "biggest star", give me a break.
