As far as Bisping goes, I'm unmoved. From here on, he shall be known to me as the brown limpet.
Run the card lol??

This is a joke right???

Because people might try to assassinate Dana due to stealing their money.

Jon Jones said he was going to defend his belt on Sept 1st and thats what people paid to see.

The fact he bitched out for a bitch reason is ONLY his fault. It forced Danas hand and he couldnt go on with the show. When you are having a show and your main attraction that everyone paid to see doesnt show up??? your show is ****ed. Especially if you do this 8 days before the show.

I'd like to see all these fighters step up, and challenge JBJ, instead of repeating the same thing everybody else is saying. Hell, people are claiming that he's clean out a whole division, now he's got 30 more people wanting to fight him.

I've become a fan of Bisping, Rashad, Rampage, Sonnen thanks to Jones.

#1 Lyoto "the Dragon" Machida
#2 Junior "Cigano" Dos Santos
#3 Mauricio "Shogun" Rua
#4 Fedor "Last Emperor" Emelianenko
#5 "the Prodigy" BJ Penn

Im on another level now

All in all... what a fecking mess.
What I dont understand is why fans are fine with this being for the title.I am sure jones would've taken the fight if there was nothing on the line.But making it for the title is very disrespectful.I dont care if chael is out of shape or that jones would thrash him.This is MMA anything can happen, these so call mma fans are so shortsighted and foolish

To Live is 2 suffer, 2 survive? well that is 2 find meaning in the suffering

If you believe you are the best then you believe that you can beat anyone at your weight on any given day. The belt doesn't matter in this situation. If Chael had won against Bones at 205 in a non title match then everyone would be calling Chael the champ.

With this line of thinking, Jon Jones should have never fought for the title when he did. You can't have it both ways.

Why shouldnt the fight be for the title???

Jones signed to defend his title on September 1st. The fact that Chael Sonnen decided to take the fight on short notice knowing the deck is completely stacked in Jones favor shouldnt make it a none title fight. Jones is the champ and unless he is switching weight any time soon whenever he fights it should be for the title.

Well actually!

If Jon Jones steps up to take a fight without being in a training camp then we can talk about making it a non title fight. But Jon Jones had 3 months to prepare and thats that. Absolutely no reason it should not be a title fight.

WAIT!!!!
Maybe when Jones fought Shogun we should have said "Well even though Shogun really isnt stepping up on short notice since he is in a training camp where he is training to FIGHT. Lets pretend he is and make it a None title fight. That way if Jones beats him Shogun still gets to keep his title."

I don't think Jon Jones would have accepted the fight regardless of wether or not it was for the title. The title is a symbol for the best in your weight division. It doesn't make you the best, JUST a symbol. Had Chael faught Jones in a non title fight and won, we know that the new best would have been Sonnen and the symbol wouldnt have clouded the truth.

I bet Jones wishes he had taken the fight now. Stepping up would have gained him a few fans and it would have been a pretty damn easy fight for him. Putting the guy talking shit to him in his place, saving the 151 card, getting another title defence. Everything would have been great for him had he taken the fight. He'd have no doubt gained a few fans and would have been considered a "true champion". For someone that considers himself to be a businessman...damn he's a shit businessman.

I just dont see how they can be this hard on him when in just one year he is the most fighting champion (this fight with Vitor will make 4 DEFENSES)in the UFC over the past decade or so, maybe ever (dont have the time to research that far back). But cut this guy some slack, i mean he is the only champion I can recall to tell Dana lets get another fight. How quickly we forget, this is truely a what have you done for me "today" type crowd.

I-ya,
I against I,
flesh of my flesh,
and mind of my mind,
two of a kind but one won't survive,
my images reflect in the enemies eye,
and his images reflect in mine the same time

MosDef " I against I"

And so it should be. People can't just cruise by based on their popularity or their past. Why isn't Tim Sylvia fighting for the HW title instead of Cain? He's not done much latley but he's done more overall. Jones needs to rebuild. It'll be difficult but with exciting fights and impressive wins, no doubt he'll get his fans back. But when you let people down, you can expect them to turn on you.
