Get him in the cage with Frank Mir, and start the fight in an armbar position.

Overall lost millions of dollars. Only positive for the UFC is they got a lot of publicity from it (seriously, when does ESPN ever want to bring on an MMA fighter on the show ASAP?).
Yea, i meant overall its a big hit - it all adds up to a huge hit to them. All down to Jones not wanting to fight a out of shape 185lber too....

At least they get something. Maybe it will cover their camps at least. I know for some it won't and some will need to use the money for rent until they have another fight booked.

He has nothing to punish Jones for. UFC scrapped the event, not Jones.

I don't know, it's pretty much 33/33/33 for me between the UFC, Greg Jackson and Bones.

Fearthefighter is apparently paying the guys they were set to sponsor anyway, pretty nice on their behalf.

It's easy. Cut him $200k from his next purse and give it to the rest of the 151 fighters.

It's not even that much of a big deal. Jon will still come away with well over half a million.

I'd let him sit. and wait.

I'd have a #1 contender tournament that could go on for 2 years.

I might offer him a prelim fight on a Ronda Rousey Strikeforce card.


I'm an as**ole.
