I figured there would be at least one, may two, definitely one, so I am prepared for this.
Please reread my comment. I never said "The fight 9 Days out" had no chance of happening. I very specifically, and extremely obviously referred to the statement Chael made when he said he would fly to Vegas "Right now, that night" and fight Jones. And Dana and other people have been blowing smoke up his ass for making that statement.
My point was, there was no chance in hell, in heaven, in space, in crypton, in narnia or in Mordor that Chael and Jones would fight right then or the next day. That's a completely hollow statement because it could never happen. So for anyone to praise him for saying it, is completely lame.
Again, it's like me saying I would fight Anderson Silva right now. So what? it obviously won't happen so who cares if I say I would do it?
I made no mention of the actual fight not happening 8 days later. Although, I do believe Chael knew Jones would never agree to it, and in all honesty. Chael probably took a deep sign of relief when Jones said no. As soon as Jones said no, he won't fight him, Chael was like, perfect, that's what I was hoping you would say and now my promotional WWE style plan is ready to go. In his mind, Chael is really saying, Thank God that Jones said no, because that dude would wreck me.
did jones happen to squeeze you too tightly the last time you were swinging from his ballsack? LMAO.
I expected someone to catch you with your comment too.
But lets take it a little further, what it looks like you're saying is that we as UFC FIGHT FANS shouldn't hold a fighter in high regard or praise him for showing a willingness to fight.
And at the same time we should also not belittle a UFC Champion who turns down a short notice fight with a smaller fighter. Win or Lose, this was a payday, and a way for Jon Jones to be a team player. Jon Jones wouldn't even have the UFC championship belt if he didn't accept a similar offer in his career, now the shoe is on the other foot and Jon Jones can't catch the bill for the table.
but lets be honest, what you really said in your last paragraph was "I'm a delusional UFC fight fan who likes Jon Jones and know the outcome of fights before they even happen so why do I watch, and why should you consider my opinion anything other than invalid"
