In this example however, Aldo had no excuse to refuse a fight months in advance with ample time to prepare.
Like Jones was in his sofa, with no schedule fight in the horizon and Dana called him to defend his belt in a week.
A whole event canceled because an unprepared, out of shape MW scared the LHW champion in a replacement match...give me a break here.
Both fighters have obligations before the company and the paying public. Aldo initial reaction was abrupt and understandable, but in the end he'll fight Pettis and Jones will go down in history as the one who refused to fight and caused an event to be cancelled.

Historical perspective is 20/20 but consider what Dana's done over the last six months. With the random firings, the nonsensical title fights, and going after the men that built the sport like Randy Couture. I don't know if Dana isn't getting close to the tipping point and the fans aren't going to turn on him.

I agree that he's been making questionable calls but he's been doing that since pretty much day one. He's concerned about the UFC and popularity and PPV money. That being said he's also never been a fan favorite.
