It starts off with the guy on Sportscenter saying Jones and his camp turned down the interview. Chael says he was contacted about the fight yesterday at 5 pm. He does not know why Jones declined the fight (said something about a horse race or a wine and cheese tasting or something). Then he said that after Jones declined the fight, Chael offered his whole purse to keep the card going for all the guys who are making 5,000 or 10,000 on the undercard trying to make car payments. Jones still turned the fight down. When asked about the 8 day notice and whether it was enough for Jones to accept the fight, Chael asked the Sportscenter anchor and anyone watching if they had had 8 days notice for a fight. Then he said do soldiers get 8 days notice when is bomb is flying their way. Called him a brat at least 10 times. Said he was a selfish brat who felt he was entitled to things and never thinks about anyone but himsef.
Chael makes a great point with the 0 days notice thing. He would have went to straight to cutting weight and doing media. At most he would have had one day in the gym.
I really hope Machida can pull off the upset so we don't have to deal with Jones anymore. **** that guy. I don't even see how some of you can defend him here. Chael's only way of winning would have been by decision. How the hell is going to go 25 minutes with no training? This was a FREE win for Jones' record and he rejected it. He'd rather not get paid at all. It's mind blowing.
