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.
