Bing, bing, bing! We have a winner!

Putting that belt around your waist guarantees that you will be in the public eye and thus they must be held accountable for their words and actions. You don't hold Joe the Plumber to the same light because his life isn't the public eye. You only see the veneer and not the person. Jon Jones is letting us see the person he is. An amazing athlete, amazing fighter, and whining bitch.

As for whether or not this article is true I have no idea. Dave Meltzer is the Dean Koontz of mma articles. Puts out a ton of them but very few good ones. We're much more likely to get Cold Fire or Twilight Eyes than Intensity or Phantoms.

In no way shape or form am I condoning the behavior of Jones. I was thoroughly disappointed with his decision to not fight Chael. Whether or not the story about the phone call to Dana is true or not remains to be seen, but it's comical nonetheless and I'm not disputing it's truth as an argument.

As kooky as Matt Hughes, Mayweather, Ortiz and Jones, as of late, have been I would never label men who fight for a living as a bitch.

That's my point.

Always Supporting Fighters That Fight to Finish or be Finished

Jose Aldo

Oops sorry I misunderstood!

Why? What keeps a fighter from being a bitch? He's not saying he's a coward. He's saying he's a bitch for backing out on his word, snitching on people, and - potentially - calling Daddy Dana to make Chael be quiet. Jones believes everybody owes him but he doesn't want to step up unless he has every advantage on his side. Those are the qualities of a bitch.

What would you call him if not a bitch?

LMFAO this is hilarious.

What's even funnier is how big of an ass whooping Jones will give Chael if they do fight with all the bickering Chael has done; Jones does not seem happy with his behavior at all.

You might say that Sonnen has disrespected Jones.

Jones is emotional, not very strong mentally outside of the cage maybe. Even walking in he looks scared. Then the bell ring...rocks fall, everyone dies.

Why do people care? Do you buy PPV's based on the morals of fighter's or do you buy them to be entertained by their fighting abilities?

I don't care if he broke down crying on FOX about Chael picking on him. I'd still buy his fights because other than Anderson, no one is more entertaining to watch than him.

People can label him whatever they want and find reasons to hate him or to not support him, but he's going to be kicking ass for years to come.

Kind of disgusted by the people calling him a bitch because in reality not one of you calling him a bitch would say that to his face.

Easy to get on the internet and call people a bitch when there is no consequence for it.
Totally agree about buying his fights and wanting to watch him fight. that hasnt changed one bit for me. I will still buy a Jon Jones ppv and I will still be very excited to see him fight. The dude is just a force of nature. But holy shit, has this ever tarnished his reputation as what some would call a "warrior" and not a businessman.

My reaction to your last two paragraphs is I guess expected; i'm truly surprised you even feel the need to bring up whether or not someone would call JJ a bitch to his face. Isn't that what a forum is for? To be able to anonymously discus our opinions with no real consequence? I just don't understand why this is brought up time and time again. The 'ol "You would do her in real life" or "you would't say that to his face" argument is about as old as the dinosaurs and really makes no sense. What are we doing here if we can't discuss how we feel about the sport openly?

And then when said champion puts you over his knee and spanks your butt the rest of the world is going to think he's a bigger bitch?

Show me on the doll where the bad man touched you!
You're joking right? You really think if I went up to JJ and called hima bitch he would get himself sent to jail by attacking me? You know that if you are trained it is considered assault with a deadly weapon right? You giggle but your comments make me giggle more. Someone like JJ is literally the safest person to call a bitch. He has everything to lose.

Damn dude, this. Rag on Sideways all you want but he is right this time. Smart move or not, it was a bitch move.

You guys are both wrong.

Im pretty sure he would pull out a bible, quote some verses, and try to bless me.
