I think that HENDO knew he is going to waste his career and get TFKO 100% sure.


Haha talk about out on a limb. I'm sure if you take into the account the context of injuries lately and the scale of the fight you can understand that he is most likely acknowledging that he understands the repercussions of his dropping out and the magnitude of it.

Jon Jones has said all along that Chael Sonnen would've had to earn a title shot at LHW and not by trash talking his way of the latter. Frankly, I would've been more surprised if Jones TOOK the fight.

UFC is the one that canceled this event, not Jon Jones. Blaming him is simply unfair and he should suffer no repercussions for his decision imo...

Hendo's knee fell off and Sonnen was all 'chill the **** out I got this' and then Jones was Jones.

Surely Aldo vs Koch or The flyweight title fight could have been moved to 151. Sure it would be a worse card but it would allow all the other 20 or so fighters on the card to have their fights still and save a lot of money.

Pretty weak move from Bones to be offered 3 or 4 alternatives and turn them down. Super weak.

Hawndo's video post brought up a great point, JBJ stepped up on short notice to fight Shogun for the title, he saved a PPV to get a shot at the world title. It's a shame that he won't do it again, I guess he's ok with short-notice fights if he has something to gain from it like a world title, but he's not okay to take short-notice fights for the benefit of the company that made him a star, the fighters on the card...even the fans who idolise the guy.

This.

Everyone keeps saying JBJ earned his place and has the right to pick and choose whoever he wants because he's some god or something. Fact of the matter is that UFC got him here and he owes it to the UFC and the fans to be there for them like they were there for him. Douche move and he will see the consequences, I'm sure.
