200lbs should be the weight.

Considering that Jones is already set to begin filming TUF with Sonnen and thus he is booked til next spring, I don't see this fight happening. And if it does, it will happen so far from now that it's not even worth getting excited over.

We have seen the bait and switch before. Remember Ace-Tito?

Heel, i honestly dont think the ufc is willing to put title holders in non title fights. especially in ones they might lose. ex. silva vs forrest,bonnar,irvin.
even less so with a young champ like jones.

but all we need is that window that AS would take that fight, and this is it.



JUST SCRAP

The UFC would do anything to get this fight to happen. **** the titles - they're completely irrelevant. I think someone might have been whispering in Anderson's ear about just how obscene the amount of money he stands to make is. Removing the title from the picture is just removing one obstacle for Jones and making the fight that much easier to put together.

Why would Jones be offended by any of this?
Cause he is a weird ass douche bag. Why was he driving drunk with 2 women not his wife in the car when he is filthy rich with such a bright future? He could have killed himself or someone else. Dude isn't the brightest bulb, he has proven that many times.

Catch weight? I don't think a growing Jones can get under 205, this guy is gonna be a Heavyweight one day if he fills out like his brothers have.

Well if you take his word for it he isn't all that heavy right now. Only in the 220s. Never heard anything about him having any troubles meeting the 205 limit. It's possible he could get to 200, especially if they allow a +1.

I dunno, he sees himself as a bit of a business man and I think he's a lot more motivated by the money than Anderson. I'm sure they'll both play hard to get to bump the price up as much as possible (maybe this is what they've be doing all along). But I'm sure he recognises that this might be one of the biggest pay cheques of his career and I don't think he'll let it slip by.

Anderson was the one I was worried about not being interested but if you compare his stance now to how vehemently opposed he was to the second Sonnen fight then the situation isn't looking too bad after all.
