"maturity" I don't think so

maturity would be jones showing up for the fight and keeping his mouth shut, he's no Zuffa businessman he's an employee. Maturity would be jones doing his job, no matter what he's asked, because he'll be making millions in the process anyway.

in his last year alone, he probably made enough to be set for life. his attitude is insulting for those who struggle with minimum wages and still have to feed kids and pay the bills.

he's immature, he's probably the most immature UFC fighter around these days. Bisping looks like a wise old man in comparison.

What cracks me up in this whole situation is that Jones talks about fighting Machida as if he wont make any money of it.

Jones still makes a boat load of cash fighting Machida. Is that really not enough for him???

The reasoning in this article implies that if Flair had made just a bit more money, he wouldn't be broke right now.

Machida was his lowest PPV draw out of all his title fights so far. If not too many people bought the first fight, relatively speaking, why would people have an incentive to buy that rematch? The PPV numbers would most likely drop.

This is how I feel. Professional athletes that bitch about their money look like spoiled babies. They have zero room to complain about their salaries when the bulk of the people watching and supporting them make a tiny tiny fraction of what they make.
