I can't help but be disappointed in Jones. Gilbert could likely wreck a few of the fighters from Sonnen's team, but Jones clearly didn't do his research and picked an awful fight. That and he was certainly quick to throw Gilbert under the bus after he lost. 'Gilbert didn't step up' and 'Gilbert lost the fight before he stepped into the cage' was a nonsense thing to say considering Gilbert fought hard right up until the KO. Had Jones done more to throw some support behind Gilbert prior to the fight, who knows what might have been. You can't allow your team to ambush a fighter, tear him down, and not expect it to be of some consequence. Jon should have told his team what was up, but instead he and his fellow coaches couldn't have cared less.

Granted, who knows what was said off camera.
