And for all you people complaining that Jones isn't taking the fight they want him to, just remember this next time I'm the only one defending fighter pay in the UFC.

The more money the fighter has, the more he is able to say no.

Jones is now picking a guy, whom most people think is tougher, that he hasn't faced before. How can he be insulted for that?
I generously ignore mostly what Jones and every other fighters says/does that frustrates the fans, so i don't go on a warpath trying to get a hate train initiated, but it just frustrates me he feels he has the power over every other fighter (i can think of), to pick there opponents and defuse a rematch.

Nothing against either Challenger for the title, both will be interesting to watch, no matter what time i got to stay up till to watch live

Also only viewing it the once, Jones/Gus, I thought was close and Jones had only won it because he is the Champion. Which is probably why i would like to see a rematch so bad.

Jones loves to contradict himself. Just a short while ago, Cormier was an irrelevant fat guy who doesn't deserve a shot, but now he's suddenly this amazing fighter? Make up your mind, son.

He posted this to instagram then immediately deleted it, as usual. Guy still doesn't realize how the internet works.

EDIT: Someone made a good point on another forum in saying that Cormier will be coming fresh off knee surgery if he were to Jones next. There's a good chance that Jones wants Cormier at his weakest.

Will make predictions for credits. Please, I'm so broke.

Jones is a COMPLETE douche, but you can sign me up in the group of guys that think it's pretty awesome.

Pretty sure at this point that Bones posts things and then deletes them shortly after on purpose. He knows most hardcore MMA fans hate him, and they are the only ones that will have access to these videos anyway.

He is trying to be a cool internet kid / has poor understanding of memes.

Get over here!

Jones is a doofus, the guy isnt savy at all.

As for the actual fight, he fought and beat Gus, and as close as it was and as good a job Gus did, he ultimately lost because he couldn't hang with Jon in the fourth and fifth which everyone pretty much agrees are the for sure rounds. His cardio couldn't hold up and it cost him.

You are right. But Dana won't care much. Jones has more leverage than a Diaz but not enough to make Dana his b*tch.

My problem isn't so much negotiating which I don't see it as anyway. To me he has 5 fights left, he is trying to take the guy with the knee injury. But it is how he addresses things like this. He acts like an idiot and contradicts what he says. DC was nothing last year, now that he beat a no namer and a 44 year old he is worthy as hell somehow.

It is more his terrible personality, girly social media vents, and contradictory excuses/statements that is more my problem with this situation. Not so much him jockeying for money if that is even what he is doing.

If he IS asking for more money the UFC should just say ok we will give you DC next after he fully recovers and keep Gustaf busy with some guy and then do that one after anyway. But like I have said in the past, UFC is desperate for headliners. They can't just have Jones sit. That is why they want Gustaf fight now....they have sat Gustaf out he is ready, DC is not. They need to fill PPV spots and it is hard when Gustaf has been out, Bones is stalling, Cain has been out, Pettis out, Weidman was hurt, Hendricks has been hurt.

DC is not really ready even though he said he would bypass the surgery now if he got a title shot. But I don't want to see that, who does. If DC loses he was injured. If its a goof fight DC wouldn't of "been at his best". Why do it under those stipulations?
