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.
This!

Weidman just retweeted this article.

"We said we're all in," Weidman said. "We just have to wait for [Ray] Longo to land, but we're all in. Just put us in the mix. Who knows if it ever got back to Jon Jones though. But UFC knew."

Looks like Weidman offered to fight him too.

Here's the thing: Jones decided on this so he will have to live with it: the good part and the bad part...he will feel the consequences in the future.

Would i have wished for him to take the fight? SURE! Nothing would have made me happier than to see him break Sonnen's face.

So...do i think he did a right thing? No...i don't. I think he made a mistake.

Am i pissed off? No, i am not, because it's not my (our) decision to make. It's not me or the people sitting in front of the tv who have to fight.

Do i think the cancelation of of this event is his fault? NO!!! I am f*cking surprised the UFC was (still is) so vulnerable when it comes to fighters pulling out of fights and messing up cards. Especially this year, when so many events got f*cked up by injuries.

The UFCmarketing department sucks ass. Like someone here said: take Jones away from the ME and make the rest of the card a free one. Fans would have appreciated this. I can guarantee this.

My conclusion is: i think Jones made a mistake and it might cost him in the future.

But that doesn't mean he needs to be crucified, because...at the end of the day it was Mr. Henderson the one who injured himself.


PS: "Bones knows"
Yep that is true. The whole basis of the previous articles was about his personality and PR. I felt this could have been his shining moment where he destroys the true villain in Chael. His decision will be one he will have to deal with. Life goes on...

On a funnier note here's what Brenneman wrote...lolz.

"(Jon Jones) u can send my check to PO box 198. EH NJ," Brenneman wrote. "Rent is due the first, so preferably by then. Thanks."

Maximus: For the glory of the Empire, sire.

I've defended nearly every "questionable" move and statement by JBJ. he's a young guy, I said. He's been thrust into the spotlight...

This, though....I just don't see how I can defend or back him. Come ON Bones.....the only thing I hate worse than having people see me backing a horse that doesn't deserve it is having that conversation with MYSELF.

Not up, Ariel said he has it and was going to upload it, but so far nothing. I'm dying to hear Dana blow a gasket.

Found it, go to just past the 2 hour mark and the conf starts.

And you think Dana doesn't? That's the reason he's mad, its not about us or perceptions or other fighters its about money and he just lost a ton of it.

Maybe this will end up being a positive thing forcing the UFC to change their business model.
