I'm super bummed out but 151 and 152 were really weak cards. Combining them makes a lot of sense. It's just really too bad for all the lesser known fighters on 151 that don't get a go now. It would be awesome if they could make it a free card but I would think there is no way to do so on such short notice.

Really surprised everyone is jumping on Jones and Jackson for not taking the Sonnen fight. Not only does Sonnen not deserve it but...man he just doesn't deserve it! I understand that he is amrketable but come on why would you even want to watch this fight? Because Chael has a big mouth?

No Anderson Silva either, because he'd lose money from sponsors if he lost and he doesn't want Anderson to lose anything if he beats him.

So can we all kind of agree now that everyone who thought Jones was kind of an arrogant douche when he was on his way up, that Jones is kind of a douche?

At the end of the day, Jones just cost everyone on that card their payday, he took food off their families table.

That was my first thought, I would be raging if I was booked to fight on that card or had a ticket. Don't care if it was Chael talking his way into a title fight he stepped up and could have saved the card and everyone else who was relying on it.

As much as I respect his talent I do not like Jones one bit as a person.

There are two sides to this:

1. Why should Jones accept a fight with a middleweight who's coming off from a loss. Imagine if he lost, his sponsors, his name, reputation, literally everything. Not to mention he'd might have lost to a guy with a week to prepare.

2. By refusing, everybody on the card lost hard. The fight camp alone costs loads of money, partners, coaches, even flight tickets for some guys.

Imo, the UFC kinda shot themselves on the foot by making such a shitty card. I mean Ellenberger-Hieron as a co-main event. No wonder they had to cancel the whole thing. With all the injuries going on lately, they should have some extreme plan b's.

No, put the blame in the correct area. Don't let DW's finger pointing rant change the fact that the UFC made the event, marketed it, and failed to save it when their main event fell through, something that has happened quite often in the past.
