Props to Miletich, Bendo, and King Mo for keeping it real and recognizing the truth. Hopefully everybody else will slowly come to terms and stop giving Bones so much unwarranted grief.
I'd like to consider myself a free thinker, and know most of the blame for the event being cancelled (in fact all of the blame) should fall on the UFC itself, but I still think Jones was a bitch for not accepting the fight. He went through a full camp, is in shape and would have fought someone who is a natural 185 pounder, who did not go through a full camp. I'm almost positive if BJ, Chuck, Anderson, Couture, Nog, GSP...etc were in the same position after a full training camp they would have fought even if their title was on the line.

But here is the bottom line. You think he made the right choice by not fighting Sonnen, while I think it was a piss poor decision on his part. Therefore, you should know by now, that we are all entitled to our own opinions.
