this sucks, i agree with ppl saying that this isnt just Jons fault, he had the right to turn down the fight but he could have been a hero, he could have been that nice guy and taken the risk for all the other fighters, lets not act like this would be the end of the world he would destroy sonnen and EVEN if by some miracle he lost he could have simply negotiated an immidiate rematch in case he loses, and he could have asked for more money to accecpt the fight anderson silva style
but no, he just refuses to fight and thats it? im not going to say its wrong but it is IMO a very selfish thing to do, i know i would´ve taken that fight and i know any other chmap would have also, sure they would also probably ask for more money or some other crap but the important thing is that the show would go on, this is BS, jon doesnt "deserve" the hate but i can understand it, he could´ve been a nice guy this just proves what kind of person he is
it almost seems like he fought so much before just so he could be a TOP dog and call shots and make loads of money, now hes cleaned out the division and can do his scheduale
think about JBJ before being champ and then trying to cement a legacy = 4 fights in 1 year
JBJ after being champ and cementing a place in LHW history = 2 fights in 2012....wth...
