“Jon Jones said, I won’t fight Chael Sonnen on eight days notice”

Remember the good old days when fighters didn’t even know who they were fighting until they showed up to the event? If you’re in shape, give it a go, chicken shyte.

Chael ain’t worthy of fighting Jon anyway. Machida is more dangerous, so I wouldn’t call Jon a chicken.

I am a big Jon Jones fan…. but ouch…. that one really stings. WTF? Chael is a 185er going up to 205 and Jones is a 220er going down to 205.

Really? No?

Like it or not… we ALL have to give respect to Sonen. He wasn’t training for it and he still took it.

I hope Dan heals up soon. This sucks.

There should be a fine for every fighter that gets injured so close to the event like this. Gyms should also internally fine or temporarily ban fighters who injure other fighters who have upcoming big bouts. Really there has to be something done about this whole injury bullshit. When I was doing amateur muay-thai league I always made sure I spar lightly in the last days before my event – but train with more intensity. The head of the gym was against it but I just said to myself F*** him and took care of myself.

I can understand why Dana is upset, but Jones made the right decision. Jones would have everything to lose, and nothing to gain by fighting Chael on a weeks notice. That fight needs its time to mold, let Chael trash talk for a month or two atleast…. And JJ is still fighting next month. Smart decision.

How classy of Uncle Fester to play the blame game and not take any accountability… so what was the point of that last FOX show with 4 guys fighting for a #1 contender spot, yet if you’re Sonnen, you get a #1 contender spot for LOSING in a lighter weight class? Maybe if they had more interesting Grand Prix type cards, they’d have a better back-up plan. Quit having so many watered down PPV cards and give us more solid events with better planning.

dink Says, in 8-23-2012 at 17:45:01 from 172.218.95.201    

Smart or not smart. It is his duty to defend the belt, and really he has no excuse. If they are putting a fighter in front of him that can make the 205 pound limit, he doesn’t have a choice of who he fights or who he doesn’t. Whoever the UFC deems acceptable is who he should fight.
If anything they should have that as a clause in their contracts. You are telling me that if Dos Santos was able to make 205 pounds, Jones would have a choice of whether to fight or not?… then why not hand pick the rest of your opponents?!?
so dumb, he f***** the UFC over so that he could build hype and fight Sonnen down the road for a bigger financial profit. F*** him… being smart in business includes not biting the hand that feeds you.

@dragoman Change your nickname to pussyman wear your pink shorts and go play babington… When you are a fighter you fight anyone any given day if you are healthy (props to Sonnen btw). Jones is a great fighter but if he keeps listening to Greg jackson the “get fans” creepy dude he’ll do more bad to his career than good.

I’ve always known jones was a lil b*t@h. I never liked him to begin with and that DUI stunt, i thought, proved my point he’s a f@gg*t fake.Christian this Christian that. Now this is just a cherry on top.Just like he’s a fake Christian he’s a fake champ. Champs don’t turn down fights, they prove they’re champs by taking on any one who steps up!Just cause you have a belt doesn’t mean you’re a champ it means you have to work twice as hard as the guy below you! This guy is not a role model for any one to follow. If your camp really supported you, as a fighter & a belt holder, they would have figured out a game plan by this weekend. Chael & Hendo both wrastlers,lol, Hendo a better striker, Chael decent. He just has a lot of heart, and thats at least half of it i know, but I personally think Chael would have been a bit easier fight than Hendo.And Godd@mn*t why would you just hand over that ammo to Chael like that?! jones you’ll never live this one down.

Or offer Jones an immediate rematch if he loses the fight?

Of course Chael would take the fight. He has nothing to lose! Jones is at the top of the heap and has everything to lose. It’s no longer about who is toughest, or manliest, it’s about making the best tactical decisions. It would have been a tactical error for any champ to take the fight.

The only thing to do in the face of such hatred is throw up the middle finger and look out for himself ONLY, just like Mayweather. People hate Mayweather, but they still watch his fights..

Congratulations to Jon “Bony” Jones who has made a leap in the world P4P rankings yet again, overtaking AIDS as the 3rd most unpopular thing on the planet. In typical punk ass fashion, the UFC LHW champion has declined to fight on his upcoming scheduled fight card stating, “I have made enough money, I am set for life, I don’t care about my fans, my company, or my fellow fighters, I am a coward and should act accordingly… you can all kiss my black ass, the fight’s off.” Uhh, thanks champ. War Machida, War Mothers Against Drunk Driving, and War Bacon, mmmm it’s good.

2012 P4P Most Unpopular:

3. Jon Jones

@dragoman: Pretty sure Shogun fought Jones on a weeks notice and had “everything to lose and nothing to gain” since he was already the champion. If you’re a fighter champion trying to make a legacy, how can that be if you get to pick who to fight and run from people who shouldnt be a threat to you anyways? Thats not a champion.

The Funky FRO Says, in 8-23-2012 at 19:09:10 from 74.14.4.196    

a) Smart move on Jones part NOT to take the fight. He’s got everything to lose, and nothing to Gain

B) It’s DANA’s fault, not Jacksons camp, that he didn’t have Co-main event. This s*** has happened before where the co Main event became the main event!

C) F*ck you about people can’t be role models with DUI charges. That’s a pretty big title and I’d love you to be in the wrong place wrong time b*tch! And calling someone a Fake Christian? You’re insulting someone’s faith? Really?

D) I like Bones, but I also respect everyone who doesn’t! They’re perfectly entitled to their opinion of him, but don’t hate just for the sake of hating, please!

E) I do believe Jones does want to be liked, but I’m pretty sure his personality, plus Jackson’s whole mental training approach is gonna keep him ready for adversity. They’re not stupid.

F) I think there was something about if it wasn’t in contracts, yadadada….if that clause wasn’t there, do you really think Dana would’ve ‘asked’ Jones or TOLD Jones he’s fighting! I’m sure there’s some clause in there depending on the length of time a new opponent can come in! I guess we know it’s between 8 days and 30 apparently (Since he was ‘TOLD’ he’s fighting the Dragon again).

G) Honestly, I feel like all this comes as a result of Dana (who I f’n this is awesome!) and the boyz not having a redundancy plan!!! If the last one one of Hendo/Edgar was injured, then Guillard/Cowboy woulda headlined no biggy; not gonna bother with Calgary’s injury card; If Silva/Sonnen were injured, Forest & Tito would headline; If Vanderlay/Ace were injured, they both need notarity, so both would take another fight for sure….but point I’m trying to make is as one other dude on here put it, this sh*t happens WAY TOO MUCH, so it’s up to the UFC to figure out what happens if…… Whether it’s by putting something in the contract that the other fighter ‘has to’, or listing ‘alternates’….it’s as simple as that.

Cheers guys.

How on earth is Jon Jones to blame? If Jones won, big deal; he was supposed to win. If Jones lost, that would be the worst loss in history, at least in my mind. Textbook lose-lose situation. I certainly would have thought less of Jones (and Jackson) had he taken the fight. Sonnen certainly didn’t deserve the immediate title shot after his _embarrassing_ loss to Anderson Silva in which it appeared he simply gave up. Who cares if Sonnen was going to fight for free? Sonnen just didn’t deserve it. Giving him the title shot for running his mouth is going to turn this sport into the WWE, with every mediocre fighter now thinking they can “earn” a title shot by being a jerk. The fact that Sonnen was offered the title fight just for running his mouth seriously tarnishes the UFC’s reputation in my mind. It is this kind of move that is killing the sport that I love. It’s certainly the UFC’s fault for not having a worthy/better back up challenger waiting in the wings. Can’t they see that fighters (including the top fighters) get injured in training? How hard is it to tell Machida, Rua and/or Gustafsson to be ready to fight on Sept 1? The UFC needs to get in the habit of always having a proper backup plan. Again, if anyone is a sport killer in this situation, it’s the UFC itself for not having a proper backup plan. Mr. White simply is trying to deflect attention by blaming Jones. I hope the UFC has learnt its lesson from this failure.

What the hell is wrong with you people? This is a SPORT, you have to EARN your way to the top, not just talk your way there. In no way has Sonnen EARNED the title shot. How the hell is anyone suppose to take MMA seriously as a sport if people are just given title shots based on their words, this isn’t WWE people, if you want a title shot you actually have to work for it. The title means absolutely nothing if title shots just gets handed out to anyone who asks for it, Sonnen hasn’t even fought a single fight yet to prove he’s worthy at 205. Jones would’ve been an idiot to take the fight, especially considering there’s ALREADY A #1 CONTENDER in Machida, is Machida suppose to just step aside for someone trying to get a title shot by running his mouth instead of actually winning fights. Apparently all you have to do now to get a title shot in the UFC is run your mouth, no fighting involved, it’s that easy folks.

If this event is really cancelled then I think
no matter what jones accomplishes now in the sport years from now people will still remember when he acted like a little diva and single-handedly cancelled a ufc event. He was offered a fight for the show to go on and he turned it down. Fighting is his job! Just like I have a job or anyone with a job. When I go to my job I cant turn down work that is given to me, if I did that then why do I have a job?. Its not an option to do your job. You call yourself a fighter so fight, its that simple.

You don’t screw everyone else’s lives, especially the poorer fighters, just because. Sonnen isn’t a much different fighter than Hendo. It would be even an easier fight for Jones.

It kinda makes sense that Jon would refuse to fight Chael on such short notice. Its a lose/lose for Jon but win/win for Chael. Jon already has a blueprint for fighting Machida so its easier to prepare. However, i am sure he has no game plan ready for Chael. It just doesnt make fighting nor business sense for a rising star with all of his new shiny endorsements to risk losing to Chael at this point.

Given that, I think it’s bizarre that Jones didn’t take the fight. Sure it’s not a big boost to his career but taking the fight and winning looks way better than this.

Greg Jackson is a weirdo Lol!!! This is the fight game! A fighter is a fighter! If you do not want to fight, then get the F*** out! It’s as simple as that. Listen to your boss Mr. Dana f****** White!

This is the whole beauty about the UFC. When the s*** hits the fan we get the unexpected. Like the Penn vs Diaz fight, Shogun vs Jones, etc.. Dana let’s just do something crazy for the 151 card or future card!!!! Let’s have an old school card where our favorite fighters get to fight fighters from different weight classes… Jones vs Sonnen, silva vs jones, Gsp vs Evans, vera vs cowboy, etc…

Look I understand people are upset at all aspectz of this situation.. Me personally, I can understand everyones point of veiw. I dont.feel jon jon jones needz to be takin the full blame why this card was cancled , it was cancled because beyond the main event(not to be harsh) but the rest of the card was.kinda shitty, I am a huge ufc and.jon jones fan and even I was considering even buying this card.
As far as the main event goes, yea jon needs to take alot of that heat..they were countin on,him to save this card after the co main event fell threw. Look, I understand that itz a lose lose fighting sonnening and dont blame him for that,but if u wanna be the best and co.sidered the best ever(which he dose) u got to be willin to put ur personal feelingz aside and take one for the team so to speak. But what gets me is if u listen close to thiz interview, dana said that jon was unwilling to fight no matter who it was most likley because he did not have time to specificly train for that opponent(Im not judgong him for it, hes his own man and makes his own desicions) but he needs to.think that the way he became the champ is because the number one contender(reshard at the time was injured) what if.shogun said nope, I will not fight jon jones on such a short notice… I have plenty of more to go on about thiz but I will end it at that as im on,my phone and not even sure this will post lol

As much as I hate Sonnen, I gotta give him credit for this one. It takes balls standing up to Jon Jones on short notice. Now, as for Jones, he is a bitch. What a C***!

pinkelephantsmarching: you talk of fighting at a high level, and yet you yourself sound like a bar brawler. Jones is a prize fighter. He does not need to show he has “balls” or some other machismo rubbish. Jones’ “job” (read: contract) was to fight Henderson, not to fight just anyone. The stakes are too high at his level to make rash decisions. Jones has shown a willingness, even eagerness, to fight. Let’s cut him some slack. Again, if anything, the UFC should be blamed for not having a backup plan or a better co-main event.

Why didn’t Dana have JJ fight AS? That would be a reason to say no IMO.

Jon Jones should have taken this fight. He cost UFC lots of money in advertisement for this event and ultimately sour his (Greg as well) relationship with Dana. He’s afraid of losing because he’s not prepared to fight another fighter of different caliber? Ridiculous.

Chael Sonnen is an opportunist. Jon Jones is a champion.

And you see those roles play out right now.

We wouldn’t be talking about this if Dana had a backup plan, or a Co Main Event.

I think Dana actually made the smart business plan, growing the sport to hate the champ, so people identify with other fighters. Brilliant.

Ya, just bring anyone into the ring on 8 days notice, guys who earn titles but shittalk, hot dog vendors on the side of the street, etc. Yep, that definitely makes the title and MMA more reputable right? Idiots.

Oh, and BOOHOO for having a paycheque delayed! Cause that’s NEVER happened right? No you can’t tell creditors, or other people owing money that it’ll be delayed a month, want proof? Pick up a paper.

I do feel sorry for the guys who are funding out of pocket, or living paycheque to paycheque, however again, take a loan, or do whatever it takes. Again, as much as I love Dana White, this is Dana’s fault for not having a backup plan

Jones is a GASH!! Dana White should strip him of title. What true champion turns down a fight? If heavy sanctions are not brought against this Gash and his camp, I will no longer purchase another UFC PPV!!!

I never realized how much rides on the main events. Shogun fought JJ on short notice knowing he was an up and coming star. JJ should act in kind but the mentality is “I got mine, screw the rest of you.” Chael was not the first fighter approached, but he WAS the first fighter to step up. JJ should not duck Chael, most likely would beat him first round, no problems. The people and money that have been crushed by one dodger is amazing. Greg jackson is the AIDS of the UFC slowly taking the life out of the sport! UFC to Islam gotta love the comments!!! Dana should make UFC 151 all volunteer short notice fights and we will see who is hungry and really wants to fight!

Jon jones is a champion he should of fought chael sonnen. Im tired of greg jackson boring ass game plans and his fighters are a bunch of weirdos and so is he. Like look at diego sanchez and melvin guillard when he was with greg jackson. Jon jones never talked the way he does now like jon jones saying hes business savvy and all this other bullshit talking just weird dumb stuff. Jon jones needs too man up and fight period. Back in tank abbotts day they fought 3 times in one night and didnt know who they fought. Jon jones made a little money now hes a p****.

Why is jones scared of chael when dan hits 20 times harder and has good wrestling it puzzles my mind. Its greg jackson safety first putting s*** in jon jones head like a f****** cult. That is why jones needs too leave that weird camp.
