its ridiculous to cancel the whole card because one went down! Yes its the main event, but put the co-main event as the main event now!

DW from now on has to make TWO main events, if anyone goes down there will be the other. Its a shame that all those guys preparing to fight have to press PAUSE because of a HOMIE frightened to take a fight against any new challenger!

It's his fault again.

Surely these are totally different circumstances?

Jones had the opportunity to really get some fans here and keep this card alive.

Well they built the card around 2 fighters because that's all they had to build the card around.

Zuffa has too many commitments and has spread them selfs too thin.

Watch this topple the ufc on fox deal by proxy.

Jones said he's not fighting chael on 8 days notice. I did. .... Just sayin
Ariel Helwani ‏@arielhelwani
Dana: good for you Jon Jones that you have money but there's a bunch of guys that needed to fight to feed their families.

The second quote is what really concerns me.

The PPV model with the one superfight promoted for months and months is so fragile and things like this is just bound to happen. Dana has no right to go off on Greg like that, Greg has no obligation towards the UFC, his only obligation is to advice Jones the way he thinks is best. And it's not like Jones doesn't have the final say in this matter. If he wanted to fight this weekend he would have fought Chael, regardless of what Greg is saying.

I'll be honest as much as I feel like slating both Jones and Jackson for this I am going to hold my tongue. I mean whilst neither Chael or Machida were really suitable opponents based on their current records. I really feel that he should have took the fight just because at the end of the day people paid to see him fight on that day. It puts a bad taste in people's mouths for the next event Jones fights at. Because what happens if he does it again? However the other guys I feel bad for are the fighters who busted their asses training for this event. The guys who spent money putting camps together and took time out of their lives preparing for these fights. That is who I really feel bad for.
