Anyone that says its not JBJs fault and he shouldnt be disrespected should be standing up and giving huge props to every other fighter who either takes a fight on short notice or accepts a replacement fight.

Who is really at a disadvantage - the guy who trained to fight Hendo for months being offered a fighter very similar or the other fighter who hasnt been training.

JBJ has nothing to gain but everything to lose? Really, this is the type of garbage that ruined boxing and made UFC so great. Champs took on whoever the UFC deemed worthy of the title shot. Poor JBJs, wont fight Chael, thinks Lyoto is beneath him. Talk about a diva.

And I will say JBJ is a crazy talent and I was pumping him since the Bonnar fight but as of late this type of behaviour is a joke.

A true fighter should take any fight he's offered. This is not a sport I used to love- f*cking gameplans and pu**ies with belt, f*ck this sh*t.

Blows. Wish Jones would have taken the fight but can understand him not. Why don't they make this a free FX card? If the UFC didn't have a poor card, they wouldn't need to cancel. Overall disappointed, but glad Bones is still fighting in a month.

How many times are they going to have somebody get injured and f*ck everything up before they take some responsibility and change the way they book fights.

Headline fight you say? Book a alternate in advance and be done with canceled fights. Its something they could have easily done with this card.

Jon Jones.."I dont want to fight Machida because he is the lowest buy rate I fought. I only want money and the big cards."

Then he turns down Chael Sonnen, whom just shattered the buy rate record his last fight.

Jones is such a fake and phony...NOW I understand what Rashad was sayin all along........
From a youtube comment. He has a good point.

I have done nothing but defend jones on here, but f*** him he's just lost a fan. Never watching a ppv with his name on again.

Diaz..Edgar.. Cormier.. Cain.. Mir.. Overeem.. Jon Jones

I went for a nap and woke up to this. I hate this.

Not entirely sure on all the details (going to go back and read through now) but the jist is Hendo out, Machida offered and declined. Sonnen offered and Jones declined because Jackson told him to. Dana goes Hulk mode (who blames him). Bout it?

The entire situation is absolutely bullshit. **** Hendo. **** Jackson. **** Bones.

Now the entire UFC card is scrapped because Jones didn't accept a fight with a 185lb'er who is completely out of shape. WOW. Just wow.

I wish to see what Rashad has to say now. He always told us about this fake guy, and today? It's wide clear to us he is a fake, and pu*****y

Champions must fight For PRIDE, HONOR, RESPECT, then then then then then then then then then then then then then then then then then then then then then then then then then then then then then then then then then then then then then then then then then then then then then then then then then then then then then then then then then then then then then then then then then then then then then then then then then then then then then then then then then then then then then then then then then then then thenMONEY!

Meh, it was a one-fight card anyways. No big loss.
