Dan could have likely fought on pain pills the same way Leben fought but rules are rules and he couldn't do it.

Don't forget Rick Story was in the title mix he took a crappy fight with a wrestler in Charlie Brennan lost and became irrelevant.

Jones needs to hike up his skirt and take a fight. He wants PPV cuts and money, so he turns down Machida, but he won't fight Anderson because he loses money. But he won't fight a guy who would sell PPV in Sonnen so now he's fight Machida. Jesus christ son.

Hey maybe you need to see this video.

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 because he's a good fighter who takes the fight to his opponents, plus he's only lost twice to anderson in how many fights?

Still while I think JBJ was smart not to take the fight, I also think he should have to pay back karma for getting his shot on short notice.
You're right, it is the UFC's fault for building a card entirely on two fighters, however, Jones was the one who killed it; not Dana.

Jones turning down a fight with Chael to save the card was unreasonable on his end. Perhaps Jones didn't think the whole card was going to get cancelled based on his decision, but he's just being stubborn not taking the fight with Chael...it was an easier fight for Jones in every possible way you look at it and he would have made money, which is what he's supposedly in this sport to do. Every time you get in the cage as a champion you will be risking more than your opponent just based on your prestige coming into the fight, that is part of being a champion and having the right attitude. Look at Anderson Silva for instance, he moved up to LHW as the MW champion, risking his image doing so, but he approached it with the right attitude and walked away the victor. Jones is stubborn, contradicts himself, and is extremely selfish and immature; **** Jon Jones.

See remember a year ago when Jon Jones was all about fighting anybody, now its about business. I just hope Machida is ready as he is taking another title fight on short notice.

Jones Killed this card plain and simple, the dude is that talented he would have smash Chael without breaking a sweat.

The UFC deserves some flack too as they shouldn't be doing shitty cards.

But, at the end of the day, Jones really doesn't have a reason to turn this fight down, I love Chael but come on now....this was a pretty favorable match up for Jon.

So true. At the end of the day it's UFC's business to make this work, not Jones'.
