That call is hillarious! Dana is f**** pissed at Jones.
Now he says, that if he turns down Machida, there will be another conf-call and "it won't be good". (Jones cut)

He is so pissed, that this is the first time a champ and p4p fighter turns down a fight. Saying once again, that he likes fighters who step up and Jones isn't one of them.

(typing this for those who can't listen btw)

I understand GJ and JBJ's decision, but there's gonna be serious ramifications on their personal relations. Real diva stuff considering what was at stake. I see all sides of the equation, but if I was a champion I'd say fawk it...I will destroy anyone who I face...but "I'd like a nice Lambo and bonus just to save the card."

Please refer to my articles. This is the absolute icying on the cake. JBJ fights for himself and only himself. Can't believe the entire card got pulled. Every single fighter is gonna be CHOKED!

"If JBJ cancels the Machida fight I'll have another media call inferring..."

Jones is a douche, he killed a card, and cost the UFC thousands of dollars.

Jones was fighting a guy on 8 days short notice...he's been training for weeks/months to fight a guy on that day, Chael wasn't. Chael is under prepared for Jones, is moving up in weight having not fought there in years, and Jones turns it down ruining the entire card, it's really selfish of him honestly. Lets be real, even with a prepared Sonnen the odds are in Jones's favor tremendously, give Sonnen 8 days notice and...come on man, you're just being selfish by not taking it. If jones was worried about losing his title he should have said he wouldn't have risked it.

put anyone in front of Jones. Just the same way he took a title shot (2-weeks or 3 weeks) let someone else have the same opportunity! Who is he to take and then refuse to give others the same case!!!!!!

SHAME on Jones, and his strategic coach GJ!

I've been saying that since jones turned down a fight with Nog,
The thing is it isn't entirely Jones fault. At the end of the day he's just a kid, it's Greg Jackson that is the one who's pulling the strings and whispering sly words in his ear.

Look at Carlos Condit for example? Refusing to take a fight before GSP and fighting with that game plan against Nick Diaz. Is he not a real fighter? Nah, Condit is a born fighter, but it was no doubt Greg Jackson who was making all of the decisions for him. Dudes a control freak.

What is it with these champions turning down fights? If you are top of the division you should get 0% say in who you fight.

I'm so pissed right now, not that Hendo got injured (yeah that sucks) but that this card could have gone ahead if jones had taken the Sonnen fight, whether he deserved it or not!
