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.
I have no problem with your opinion. My problem is with the people who are putting all blame for everything on Jon Jones and acting like he is the devil now for making the worst decision of all time. My problem is with the scapegoating, hyperbole, and overreactions.
