That was a poorly laid out business plan. Business-wise he will make MORE money from this. Lesnar outdraws GSP. Mayweather outdraws Manny. Why? "Bad guys" sell fights.

I don't agree with Bones's decision but I have accepted it and moved on. And unless you are part of the UFC or tied to one of the fighters, you should too.

Would like to see your business plan on how it was a good decision. Lesnar was a bad ass with a huge previous following. Mayweather is more of an asshole then a badass. The difference between those two guys and JJ is jones is being a bitch about it. People pay to see assholes fight but not chickenshits. Point will be proven on the jones vs belfort card
The only big PPV JJ will get in the next few years is if he fights Chael Sonnen or anderson silva

I still haven't moved on from Bones signing "Champion" before he was champ and saying "even though i'm a white belt i'll tap Shogun", let's not mention the little DUI incident that he told us all he'd never be involved in. And now he's gone and contradicted himself again, saying he's a real MMA fighter that never turns down fights, only to become a complete Bitch once he became champ and turn down pretty much all comers.

I actually hated on GSP for a long time due to his overuse of caution in his fights, but Bones is just a complete fool. I can't believe some of you think this guy is intelligent.

I also can't believe some of you still blame it on Bones being "a kid".. yeah really? Dude is 25 years old, I had more sense than him at 16. It's either you have it or you don't, Bones is 25 and still a child, he will never grow up.

I also hate Greg Jackson.

I think Greg Jackson has let the cat out of the bag. He's told the world " our guy may be incredibly talented but he isn't smart enough to win without my 10 week game plan,..plan"

Nobody is saying he's intelligent. We could all say that we're more intelligent, regardless of age. But there is a difference when you're under the spotlight and millions are watching your every move. Everything you say is turned against you in the future and your every move is calculated.

Bones should have taken the fight, but I am just looking at it from all angles. And DonRifle, we will see about the PPV buys. A lot of casual fans who like seeing him fight could care less.

Should it really be any other way?
