Pat did look at the bigger picture here, from an individual point. And he did point out some good arguments.
I didnt think he pointed out ANY decent arguments since each of those arguments had also a down side.
For instance yeah the UFC has had alot of cards but in a recent poll people have voted they like more fight cards rather then 12 fight cards a year or something. And even if the cards have been top heavy that doesnt change what Jones did in the least. That card could have been spectacular and what Jones did would still be pathetic.
But you know that doesnt even matter. If i completely ignore who to blame for the card being cancelled my opinion on the situation is still exactly the same.
He mentions that Sonnen isnt 5 foot 11 and is a lefty. But doesnt mention that Jones has been training for 3 months and Chael hasnt. Doesnt mention that Chael was also taking this fight on 8 days notice just like Jones. He mentions that Sonnen might move a bit better then Dan but Doesnt mention that Chael is stylistically an easier fight for Jones. He has no problem saying that Hendo is a bit older now but doesnt mention that Chael hasnt looked that great in his last 2 fights while Henderson has been on a tear. He acts like Dans only weapon to worry about is his right hand but doesnt point out that the only weapon chael has is his wrestling which is only used for grinding out a 5 round decision which he doesnt even have cardio for. So which is more likely that Hendo finishes the fight with his right hand or that Chael manages to grind out a decision he does not have cardio for?. He mentions that Chael is bigger then Hendo but doesnt mention that Jones is bigger then everybody at LHW. He mentions how Sonnen hasnt earned the title shot but doesnt in the same way explain why Chael was given the title shot and why it was important for him to have it.
We already pointed out how full of shit the "Nothing to gain" comment was.
I mean i could just keep going about how he tried to twist everything or leave out the opposite edge.
So no he does not bring up any good points about why Jones should have backed out. Everything he mentioned as to why Jones should have backed out, there is a better reason why he should have stayed.
Jones pussed out for a p**** reason and that is all there is to it.
