Jon Jones doesn't need surgery anyway!

Quote:
Well, this isn’t going to help the credibility of that swagger-jackin’ Jon Jones. Bones’s manager Malki Kawa took to twitter today with a revelation that will only give more ammunition to the haters who found it a little suspicious that the UFC light-heavyweight champion postponed a fight against Rashad Evans to fix a thumb injury that “doesn’t affect his punching or grappling“:

I guess its time to put out the truth. @Jonnybones suffered a tear in his thumb in 2 different spots… Every dr he saw said to have surgery. We went to meet with the surgeon on wed and after he looked at @Jonnybones he thought that surgery was a bit invasive and bones didn’t have To have if he didn’t want to. @Jonnybones decided against surgery, and we immediately met with dana and lorenzo the next day to get his next fight scheduled.

For the record, every doctor @Jonnybones saw was a @ufc referred doctor. The very last one on the day before surgery thought against it…And to be quite frank, @Johnnybones never wanted to have surgery, the doctors advice all along was to have the procedure done. No @Jonnybones is not fighting rashad. Rashad is fighting phil davis. I’ll let you know who or when jon will fight real soon.

Do we think Jones ducked Rashad because he’s afraid of his former training partner? Of course not. Judging from the flawless beatings Jones has inflicted on guys like Mauricio Rua and Ryan Bader, that’s a ludicrous suggestion. Unfortunately, perception is reality, and Rashad can now hijack the narrative with the talking point that Jones pulled out of their fight with a fake injury, just to avoid fighting him. (Look, he’s already doing it!) At this point, turning public sentiment against Jones is probably as important to Evans as beating him in a fight. Get ready for a whole lot of mud to be slung…

This really doesn't help Jones get rid of his haters, but what are you going to do? If the story holds up he cannot be blamed... Fishy though :P

If he isn't going to have surgery, set the fight date. Let's get this over with, b/c we all know, if Rashad loses to Davis, it will be a non-stop whine fest.

F*CK THE HATERS!!

And Dana needs to re-schedule Jones vs Evans!!!

ASAP

Vera's doctor needs to operate on another broken orbital

My prediction is: Jones vs Evans for the LHW title will take place sometimes in October.

I just... don't care at all.


MMA is about fighting, not drama or teams or injury conspiracies or any of that garbage. Jones may be a great athlete but he sure has created a lot of annoying drama at LHW.

I agree with Khov, are we in high school again?

This whole thing is stupidly annoying and pointless, Jones and Rashad just need to grow the hell up.

I want this fight to happen so this whole stupid drama crap can stop and we can get the LHW division back to, you know, fighting with fists, not with silly words and tweets.

Excuse me...i just have to ask...(being the Jones fan that i am)

How did Jones create the drama here?!

If doctors (professional opinions) told him: get surgery!...and h decided to do it.

And now they tell him: no surgery!

Is this his fault for the situation?!

Maybe fighters shouldn't listen to doctors and just do what they think is good for them, right?! (Alves, Fitch, Cain...)

Don't get me wrong...I f*cking hate this situation also. I want Jones to fight (smash) Evans so much...

I predict this fight will be re-scheduled. No way they're keeping Jones on the sidelines if he's healthy.

Well if Jones doesn't require surgery now then lets put the fight back on. There are zero reasons on why Davis should keep fighting Rashad now other then giving Jones a long, long layoff.

I don't understand this..

Personally I believe that Rashad would defeat Jones and maybe JBJ really does know that too.. who knows?

I really doupt he is already at the level striking wise and grappling wise to defeat a guy like Rashad just yet.

I truly believe Rashad knows he is the superior Fighter!

I wonder if Rampage brutally KOs Hammill if he'll get the shot.
