Will Jones suffer any consequences for this? more than likely he will. It's never a good idea to be on the bad side of your boss especially if that boss has a monopoly on your entire industry.

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."
Exactly. People can shout and cry as much as they want, but a man cannot be forced to do stuff against his will. He has a coach - wich plays an important role in his career + life - so they took this decision.

Everyone should deal with it.

Jones is the one who will collect the "rewards" when everything is over.

He will get BOOd at his next weigh ins. He next opponent will get massive cheers while he will get s*it.

It's something he will live with.

But, He said Sonnen is not deserving of atitle shot, and he won't give him the opportunity to fight for the belt, without earning it. And he stood by his word. I respect him for that.

As far as the UFC is concerned, imo this just proved how vulnerable the UFC is when confronted with a ptoblem like this.

It happened all year long: fighters pulling out du to injuries, cancelation of main events or co main events...cancaleation of whole events and relocations.

This was a weak card on paper. The UFC bet everything on Henderson going in the fight and trying to give Jones a fight. But i believe this card would have made shitty PPV buys annyway. Henderson is one of the most experienced fighters in the world. It's beyond me, how he could have sustained such a major injury just 8 days before one of THE most important fights of his life. It's beyond me...


If the UFC want to point a finger at the person most guilty for this event being canceled, they are doing it wrong by pointing at Jones.

Just saying...

UFC is the one to blame here. Why should a champion take a fight on 7 days notice ? the last 7 days are just media and weight cutting days! Of course loads of people and going to step up to fight the champ they will have nothing to lose and everything to gain!

The UFC should NOT of cancelled the whole event! The UFC has let the fighters down and every fan who booked holiday, travel and accommodation for this card! Yeah they can get a refund on the tickets but all the latter not a chance.. moving this to a free event would of been the best option for everyone. The fighters would of got paid and the fans would of got a card to attend.

Dana just had a roid rage!

Why shut down a whole card Dana? You talk about Greg Jackson and Jon Jones being that bad..but you guys where the ones that decided to cancel the entire card!

to blame all or most of this on Greg Jackson and Jon Jones...comeeee on Dana!
You might have a point but if you got a Nike deal and talking about how huge that will help other fighters. How are you gonna promote Nike to other fighters if you are pulling out of a card with full training camp and showing that you are not 'best' in mma when you are turning down fights because you don't needs the money.

On top of that, you started out like the rest of the newcomers and now talks that you are looking for better PPV buys and don't wants to fight Machida but you got a hype machine fighter like Chael that can bring the numbers that you are looking for.

Its not a smart business move IMO if you are looking for money fight. On top of that, you just screwed all your fans that just ready to fly to see you fight and you are not injured but you got a bunch of guys willing to fight you to save the card.

Do you honestly think these other fighters would of gotten more money without a main event and sponsorships?

Think about it.

Now who are we going to believe? Dana White, the hypocrit that says Bones knew it was going to be canceled or Greg Jackson? I say let's go on slamming them both.

As much as I dislike jones I'll admit its not his fault here, the ufc dropped the ball. The man is the champ, under no circumstances should he be force to defend his belt when his opponent is the one to withdraw. It's the fight game, but at the end of the day Jon Jones is the one who has everything to lose and nothing to gain by taking a fight on short notice.

JJ in his first HW contest, anyone? Saves the card; no title on the line...

Something...

Canceling the card is drastic and there may have been better options but you're not gonna find many people willing to step up on 8 days notice, to put together a team and a camp to fight Bones.

Do you know what is the lame thing about JBJ?

The UFC is his MAIN SPONSOR

DW: Go sponsor some guys who are men and have balls to stand up when they are needed. Not guys who only think about the green paper "money" !

I agree, Im with Dana on this ( don't happen often) If your the f**king world champion and considered a p4p best, you fight, period. Especially a guy thats smaller, unprepared and will make you a ton of money. I never was the biggest JJ fan but I liked the guy, Im really not impressed with any of these developments.
