And those who believe Sonnen vs. Jones would have hurt the sport need to give their heads a shake and stop being so damn dramatic. The UFC must certainly share in the blame, but to act as though Jon Jones hasn't made himself look a prima donna fool as of late is just blind, biased ignorance. Won't fight Silva. Won't fight Lyoto. Won't fight Sonnen. Yeah... you go ahead and champion that guy.
THIS'

its telling when out of all of those tweets the only one backing jones is king mo.

@JonnyBones Can I at least get one of your new Nike T-shirts? I'll give it to my kid since I won't have any money for her school clothes.

What a dagger.

No, its the UFC's fault for putting on a shit card, when has a fighter pulling out of a fight ever resulted in a card being cancelled? They are just using Jones as a scapegoat for them not having any other named fighters on the card. This was just a 1 fight card all along and with out that fight they have nothing, so **** the UFC for putting Jones on the spot like this and then using him as the cannon fodder for not taking a pointless fight on short notice. This should(but probably wont) teach UFC a lesson for trying to sell us a 1 fight card, they need to always have a decent co -main event in case of things like this.

Wow, Jones is trying to kill his career and become enemies with the UFC apparently.

He better take the fight or he's in for a shit storm.

I dont think its such a terrible back-up plan to expect other fighters to jump in to take an injured fighters place.

Its not like its never happened before.

The only thing that is unprecedented here is a champ, refusing to fight someone from a lower weight class.

I don't really blame Jones. Sonnen's last fight was for a title at a lower weight class and he lost. He has yet to win a fight at 205 in the UFC.... The sport would have looked bad giving a guy a title shot under those circumstances.

It's a bummer for all the fighters scheduled to fight on this card, but thems the breaks. They'll get fights really soon I'm sure.

It was an awful card anyway.

Worse than cancelling a whole event?

Crazy talk man. The fallout from this could be potentially worse than the remote possibility that Chael beat him. Fighters hate him, fans hate him to the point of boycotting his events, his bosses are disgusted with him, etc etc. That's just the negatives for him, it affects everyone else much more .
