Is there something in the new testament about accepting fights on short notice? Quite frankly, I thought that sort of thing was old testament territory.

It is funny that Jones and Bendo are 2 of the Fighters that bang on about Christianity and throw it down peoples throats are also the 2 that support this selfish decision.

Jones is a cock.
Jones had nothing to gain from this fight other then money, and everything to lose.

Chael, on the other hand, had absolutely nothing to lose. Don't be a cock.

**** Jones. How can a champion, supposedly the best fighter in the division, reject a fight with an out of shape fighter from a lower weight class? Ridiculous. I don't care if Sonnen deserved it or not, an entire card was just scrapped because of one man. How this guy has fans is beyond me.

In that logic Jones doesn't have to fight anymore....He has nothing more to gain

I think 99% of other fighters would have taken the fight out of respect for everyone else, and not be a cock about it. And yea, G hit in on the head. Jones has nothing to gain except money from now on...so why fight anyone.

As a self-proclaimed "businessman", money & brand should always be his top priority. He failed in both respects.

You're a cock, as is Jones - being that selfish makes you a cock. What ever happened to looking out for your fellow man? Respecting your fans? He would of got a big chunk of cash and supposedly an easy fight, people were picking him by destruction against a 100% Sonnen and he had him on a silver platter out of shape and at the wrong weight.

Nothing to lose?

I don't understand why people are saying this, Chael's best attribute is his wrestling, and Jones is a phenomenal wrestler, Chael would have been a lamb to the slaughter on eight days notice with basically no training camp at all. He would have taken a hellacious beating at the hands of Jones. Nothing to lose? He'd have got his ass kicked most likely.
