if your talking about me i call him an idiot because its not the first card that was bad and it certainly wont be the last. i call him that because he just discredited his champ, and the whole div. in one fell swoop.

its fine if your mad jones didn't accept the fight but dont try and blame him for the card you put together. 7+ other fights on the card, its your job to promote them-not point fingers at jones for the paychecks you choose not to give.

i cant think of any clearer way to explain my position than this. blame dan for not disclosing the injury asap, blame jones for not taking the fight with sonnen. but don't blame anybody but the ufc for the cancelled card.

Maybe because there is no need for him to apologize in the first place?!.....

How about Henderson apologize because he was stuborn enough to continue his camp injured for 3 weeks until he couldn't take it no more and by that time it was a little too late for the whole thing to be handled correctly?!...

I have a feeling things would have been handled a lot more preofesionally by everyone involved, if Henderson would have raised his hand, right there, right then.

Is that a good reason to apologize?!
Is that a good reason to blame someone for the card going down?!

Just sayin' Oldie...

It's not Jones fault alone the event was canceled, but if he was the cage fighter his bad boy's face would suggest, the show would go on.

As I said before: Stephan Bonnar, Chris Leben or Wanderlei Silva patches to pass some fighter dignity to these new "champs".

Does anyone still believe Jones` claim that he doesn`t want to fight Anderson because of mutual respect?

It's pure fear. The guys is scared of Chael, then he's definitely scared of Anderson.

I understand where he is coming from and his reasoning is valid but Anderson Silva or GSP would have accepted the fight. He must not believe he is the best otherwise he wouldn't be afraid to fight someone who hasn't trained for a fight when he has had a full training camp and would be coming in at peak condition.
