Having more time to reflect on the situation, I guess I didn't realise just how many other people are negatively effected by this move. A truly selfish decision from the Greg Jackson camp. At first I was just thinking, what's the big deal, Chael didn't deserve a shot any way, but the consequences of cancelling this event are much bigger than that, so many people got screwed over.

If Jones had any dignity left, he'd contact the UFC headquarters, apologise and accept the fight with Sonnen. It isn't too late.

Sorry guys it's not Jones fault the card got cancelled. He held up his side of the agreement to fight Hendo. Dan is the one that pulled out and Dana is the one that cancelled the entire card. Jones isn't obligated to partake in freak show fights with a MW coming off a beat down at 185.

Also, If Dana was concerned about the other fighters financial well being he would have salvaged the card or just paid them anyway(Yes he can afford it)...But he didn't do that. He obviously doesn't give a shit about anyone else except his own bottom line.

Well, think about. The fighters got screw, all the fans who made travel plans gotta paid cancellation fees with airports, hotels and so on.

Wouldn't you be pissed to be going somewhere and now your 'vacation' is screwed.

Exactly, guess I just didn't think about that stuff initially, but you're completely on point.

Man up Jones, and accept the fight.

Without a doubt Dana told Jones that if he turned down this fight that the UFC would have to cancel the card. That and the fact that he'd be fighting another wrestler that doesn't have KO power should be enough motivation to get in there, make sure everyone gets paid and just fight.

It is sad that the UFC cards of late have been built like boxing cards. Its a disaster waiting to happen but in reality Jones is just being selfish and I really hope that this comes back to bite him in the ass.

Dana is an ass. Greg Jackson is an idiot. Jones picks his fights. What else is new?

Oh yeah, they all don't give a flying **** about their employees, fighters and fans.
