I really think Meltzer is trying to make up rumors based on the perception of JBJ's "immaturity".

Meltzer may exaggerate, but he rarely makes things up, so there's likely a grain of truth to this. That said, I'm over this entire ordeal. Jon Jones the man has several unlikable qualities, but as a fighter he's a pleasure to watch. I only care about the latter. People will be back to speaking highly of the man once he dismantles Vitor (that's how MMA fans operate).

I'm going to assume the "grain of truth' here was that Bones wanted to make sure Chael didn't twitter his way into a title fight, which I'm perfectly OK with.

Without any kind of source provided I don't buy this story at all.

As for Jones, the guy got drunk and drove his car into a pole. He could've killed someone, and people were saying "he made a mistake."

Now he turns down a fight he was promised wouldn't happen without the other guy earning a shot and he's public enemy #1. It makes no sense.

I don't support the guy because I can't support someone who endangered the lives of innocent people. The rest of this stuff is inconsequential.

I'm with you. This whole shit has got me too involved in what I ALWAYS hated, the politics. I want Vitor to win, just as I wanted Wanderlei to beat Franklin and Noguieria to beat Schaub. Jon Jones is a top 3 fighter on the planet in everyone's books and wether or not he's being a bitch, I'm officially tuning out to it and sticking to enjoying the fights.

FUK TWITTER AND DAVE WHATEVER HIS NAME IS!

IF this is true, then that's pretty lame of Bones. I am a big fan of his as a fighter and I'm his biggest apologist in this whole 151Cancellation faux-scandal, but I really can't defend this if it's true. I understand that Jones doesn't want someone to talk their way into an undeserved title shot, but talking trash on Twitter isn't a big deal. Either man up and deal with it, or just ignore it!

I really don't think we will ever know what went down. All this is outside of cage soup. I am of the opinion fighters should not have ultimate decision on who deserves title shots, twitted, facebooked, whatever. Jones is a great fighter, but also immature and he is being oriented by jerks IMHO. In the end, he's a grown man and will take the heat of his acts as well of heat from rumors that would make sense.

I have tried to post in this thread a few times now but I can't think of anything more to say than I am at a complete loss for words.

Guys go watch the video OLdie posted on page one! Jones does say these things!

Wow, it just keeps getting worse for this poor guy. Can't believe he actually used the words "fight Sonnen anywhere anytime" 6 days before he turns down the fight. Jones definitely isn't getting any new fans from this.

Nobody is arguing about the part where Bones said he'd fight Sonnen any time, and then he didn't. We are saying that we doubt Bones went to Dana and told him to ask Sonnen to stop mocking him. It's not beyond Meltzer to take a story and juice it up a little bit. He's ALWAYS done that with wrestling too and has spread to MMA in recent years.

You didn't know anywhere anytime means as long as I have months to prepare?
