Sure he does part of a fighters income comes from their image and marketability and JBJ has not been the most popular fighter among the hardcore MMA fans.

He seems more like gifted athlete who would rather play video games and go shopping than a bad ass in your face fighter.

Even Anderson when pushed turns into a killer but Jones seems to be more about business and stardom then actually fighting. If he could make more money at tennis I’m sure he would quit tomorrow.

I respect his obvious fighting ability, athleticism and he DOES bring it in the octagon but is he really a fighter?

Guys like Randy, BJ Penn, Liddell, Hendo are fighters.

Wait a second, Dana had to cancel ONE FIGHT, not the ENTIRE CARD!

Also, Dana could have offered JJ a different opponent aside from Sonnen.

Chael Sonnen has just became the most respectable UFC fighter. What the **** is going on?

**** Jon Jones. Vitor, do what we all wish we were capable to do

You think Dana only offered Jones 1 opponent?!


Without a big name fight on the card this card would have done terrible on PPV buys and they probably would have lost more money than just cancelling it!

While the UFC is to blame largely for getting itself into this position in the first place, Jones should have taken the fight and the excuses provided so far are very poor.

If you've had a full training camp to prepare for a fight, and can't beat a smaller fighter who had 8 days to prepare, you quite simply don't deserve to be the champion.

Joe Lauzon and the rest of them can kick rocks.

Hay hendo waited at least a week and a half maybe even longer before even telling Dana he was hurt.

So why didn't he call Dana and say "hay you might want to start making other plans I'm injured and might not be able to fight."

And for some reason nobody's pissed about that? If you haven't herd hendo tweeted today that he just got done working out with team members naming the guys he was supposedly training with and one of them tweeted back to hendo he hadn't seen him in the gym in a wile, why was he saying they worked out. Had Dan not named names and got caught lying we still might not know the score.

IDK guys, lots of bad decisions in this mess by just about everyone involved and these fighters coming out of the woodwork to attack Jones need to keep their mouths shut, its making them all look fugly.

I agree with Machida and Shogun turning down their offers. You lose a title shot, you go to the back of the pile. Machida has worked to a stage where he can contend for the title, and if he accepts a shot where he isn't 100% prepared and loses, he fades way to the back once again. Shogun's name isn't far linked from the title aswell so I don't blame him for turning it down. Sonnen has nothing at LHW yet and Vitor has been fighting MW for a long time so he doesn't have anything either. Both men wanted this fight because that way they jump up from the bottom.

Why isn't Bones fighting Sonnen at 152? If Dana was willing to accept Sonnen for 151, why didn't he get mentioned for 152?

You pretty much stated the reason, when you lose the belt yoy move to the back of the line, Chael won via forfeit he is the champ, Jones will have to fight vitor now.

My guess would be the UFC is playing a game, Chael will blast Jones for the next couple of months and will create one hell of a a fight for Superbowl weekend.
