Nike slogan change to "Just Do Nothing!"- Chael Sonnen


Pretty funny/ clever quote from Chael.

As much as I respect Jones' skill as a fighter, I think he and his camp have made a bad decision for his overall marketability.

Fans are upset, fighters are livid and both are hurt financially. This is one of those cases that leave a bad taste in people's mouth.

Jones did the smart thing for him in terms of taking a different fight he can prepare for, but the backlash from the move is going to definitely hurt his image.

The buzz around him will only continue though and I don't see any boycott of his PPV's. If anything the negative press he gets from not fighting Chael will actually get him more PPV buys in the future because people will be talking about him and his decision in the coming weeks.

It's a damn shame he didn't take the fight because he really hurt a lot of the lower tier fighters struggling to make a living.

A lot of people are making the argument against Jones for another reason, which I tend to agree with too. They're saying that after his interview on espn it's clear he didn't want to fight Machida because of the low risk, low reward lose-lose situation for him. Chael is a win-win situation in comparison. He's a lower weight, less skilled fighter and a huge PPV draw. What could Jones be thinking other than that he thinks Chael is a dangerous match-up for him in such short notice?
