The only reason I'm shocked by Jones' decision is because of the money he could have made by fighting Sonnen. He could have easily requested a $1 million bonus in addition to his regular pay.
I agree with this. There is no need for jon Jones to be apologetic for his actions. He did what he was contractually allowed to do and if other fighters had a problem with it, they can go (fill in the blank) themselves.

I'd LOVE if he had that attitude.
