jon jones, you reap what you sow. if you didn't understand that principle before, i'm betting that in the coming days, you most certainly will. and i will not be shedding a single tear for you.

regardless, dana white needs to be replaced. somehow, some way he seems to be getting more unprofessional with time. i realise that he is in lock step with the fertittas and joe rogan in condemning jones, but out of those four people, the show-runner is supposed to be the most professional of all, like in pretty much all other sports. yet it's usually the reverse with dana white. crazy.

Sonnen doesn't actually want to fight Jones. He just wants to learn how to connect on a spin move.

I wouldn't have taken it either. The UFC has made millions and is highly profitable. Comical of Dana to say that this has cost the other fighters money when he could easily just cut them a check and it would be pennies compared to what he and the company have made off the fighters. Hell he still could have let the card happen, slash the ticket and ppv price and still would have turned a profit considering the pennies he pays fighters compared to other major sports. Dana is just mad that for once a fighter didn't drop to his knees and unzip his pants to make him happy.

What a joke. Put on a fight any fight. MMA and their athletes are starting to become prima donnas.

holy shit, this is officially hilarious

how is belfort even deserving? who is the last good fighter he beat? franklin?

why did machida turn down the fight? did he want more money? wtf, i was actually looking forward to that fight.

at least if one of them gets hurt, 152 has a good co main event that people would be interested in. lesson learned even if this whole fiasco should and could have been avoided.....

They said a number of guys turned down the fight, and made it seem like Chael was the only one willing to step in. Well, Weidman said he'd also do it, but that was after it was already cancelled.

apparently silva was willing to step in to fight another LHW as well (not jones). anyway, what a clusterfvck of a day.

i want to see weidman vs. belcher. weidman's been itching for a fight and belcher is a worthy, good test.
