Multiple UFC Fighters Take To Twitter And Take Issue With Jon Jones | UFC NEWS

With the news that the UFC was forced to cancel UFC 151 after Jon Jones refused to accept Chael Sonnen as a replacement opponent, many of the champs peers took to the popular social media outlet of Twitter to express their disappointment in the champ and throw a few jabs at Jones in the process.

 

michael ‏@bisping
Jones said he’s not fighting chael on 8 days notice. I did. …. Just sayin

TJ Dillashaw @TJDillashaw
I can’t believe a whole show was canceled because of Jon Jones!! He should have to relinquish his belt

Michael Chiesa @MikeMav22
@JonnyBones is a fraud. He’s all about his $$ but he won’t take a fight with @sonnench who would bring in WAY more $$? He’s scared, period.

Vinny Magalhaes @VinnyMMA
How to ruin an entire event #BonesKnows
Things that people learned today: Chael @sonnench is the man! A lot of people will be losing money. Jon Jones doesn’t give a shit.

Charlie Brenneman @SpaniardMMA
Me n @rick_story took a fight on 24 hrs norice!! Champ what?!?! @ufc
@JonnyBones u can send my check to PO box 198. EH NJ. Rent is due the first, so preferably by then. Thanks. @ufc

Mackens Semerzier @MackDaMenaceMMA
Cancel the whole damn event? What happend to “I’ll fight whoever the @ufc tells me to” or does that only apply to fighting “friends”?

Michael Chiesa @MikeMav22
99.999% of @UFC fighters will be “company men” and help our organization if needed. @sonnench is a company man, @jonnybones is selfish.

Ulysses Gomez @uselessgomez
Bones wouldn’t be taking the fight on “8 days notice” he’s been training for a fight for at least 8 weeks! Chael is same style as Hendo. But he said no?

Abel Trujillo @AbelTrujillo1
The news of UFC 151 cancelled is heartbreaking!!! Trying to stay positive that its Gods plan & not mine!!! Jon Jones is selfish For that!!!

john albert @UFCPrinceAlbert
I am so livid right now I was the biggest Jon jones fan but not anymore that guy is bad for the sport his fans and other fighters he doesn’t
Understand or forgot what it’s like being a lower ranked fighter like me or @JeffHougland who make pennies compared to him and fighting is
Our livelihood and we survive by fighting and all the hard work those 20 other fighters put in are goin to waste utterly discusted

Brock Jardine @BrockJardine
If u wanted to make money y wouldn’t u want to fight @sonnench who was just part of biggest ppv in @ufc history Really disappointed

    • Mike b says:

  2. danielrchargers says:

    all 100% right.
    i have never been so irritated about anything MMA or NFL before but this is just terrible.

    • Mike Rivera says:

      Some where out there Rahad Evans is smiling saying I told you… lol dam Rashad we should have listen when you warned us

    • Loose Cannon says:

      Who cares what all these no namers think? Mad cause Jones wont CARRY them? Its their fault they cant carry the card. Dana owes apology for starting all this fu^&ery!

      • What??? You should go and fight one of these “no namers” for saying that… They fight to live, to pay rent, to feed their families… I understand now, i never liked Jones and his selfishness and arrogancy, right now i’m smiling at UFC and waiting for Machida to take his belt back from this chump…

        • H-Bomb says:

          DW Should offer to pay each fighter that didn’t get to fight at least 10,000 dollars. It was DANA’S fault for canceling the entire event! He could have moved up another main event like he did at UFC 149. I was looking forward to watching Dan knockout Johnny cold and leave with the gold. Fuck you Dana White for acting like a bipolar bitch! Dana White is bad for the sport. He’s foul mouthed, unprofessional more often than not and never seems to think before he speaks.

        • donkeyballs says:

          ^i agree about dw

        • jon smith says:

          Dana owes these fighters nothing, he gives them a job and they get paid way more than is disclosed. Its a company and sometimes things fall through. While it sucks and I do think White should move the card to be televised free he owes nothing to these fighters because one fighter was too scared to take a fight all in his favor

  3. Jim says:

    Man, got your co-workers pissed at you? Damn…Need a Twix?

  4. magoo says:

    Maybe Dana and the Fertittas should compensate them for putting to many average lame sauce fights on the card,joe Silva take note put more then one solid fight on a $50 ppv and you wouldn’t be in this pickle! As for JBJ he signed a contract to fight Dan Henderson not some random opponent on a weeks notice, now everyone’s using him for a scape goat…..what bullshiat!

    • 808Pimpin says:

      Still… he should have taken the fight like a man. Instead of being Greg Jackson’s little bitch.

    • White had no backup plan. Reduce the PPV cost and run the event. Find someone to fight Sonnen. DON’T let Jones fight anyone until he faces Sonnen…Machida can wait…he doesn’t scare Jones…but obviously Sonnen does.

    • ReallyChump says:

      Dude your an idot!! He was training to fight one of the best in the world HENDO! Why would it matter who he fought. Especially since everyone wanted to see him get smacked in the teeth by a striker. And Hendo and Chael have the same fighting style. Are u Jones in disguise. He is yet another of these overpaid douches that think they make the PPV. No WE make the PPV dumping all our cash to watch. Give me a break.

    • TheChief says:

      Finally someone talking sense. They try to sell a shit fight card with one good fight and Dana blames Jones for having to cancel the card. Chael shouldn’t have even been in consideration for a title fight, and I bet that after Jones destroys Machida again, Chael will manage to talk his way into another title fight.

    • Yo says:

      Damn Magoo atleast you ride jones bone real hard,true fan right there lol.

    • KOtko says:

      Well said! The man prepared for Hendo! who is sonnen to challenge anyone? he is 100% mouth! And if anyone is bad for the sport it’s Dana White!!! I’d gladly pay $44 for the Jones vs Hendo fight, I would’nt even watch sonnen fight!!!! where was machida? shogun? they didn’t jump up and say they’d fight him on 8 days notice!!!!! don’t blame Jon Jones, BLAME DANA WHITE FOR TRYING TO MAKE HIS $$$$$ NO MATTER WHAT!!!!!!

    • Disappointed says:

      “As for JBJ he signed a contract to fight Dan Henderson not some random opponent on a weeks notice”

      “As for Shogun he signed a contract to fight Rashad Evans not some random opponent on 4 weeks notice”

      Fixed that for you…

  5. Big J says:

    Dang, the truth about a person will eventually get out!

  6. Evan says:

    People want something or someone to be mad at? Be mad at the UFC and it’s leaders as they were the ones who based an entire PPV card on one fight! The co-main event and downward was laughable… I doubt the UFC would have even used those fights for an FX event. Blaming Jon Jones for not wanting to fight a guy whose coming off a loss in a lower weight class is ridiculous. Blame the men who organized an event that had no fall back plan incase something like this happened. Blaming Bones is disgraceful and a shady act by the UFC.

    • danielrchargers says:

      You sir, dont know what the fuck you ARE REALLY talking about.
      Actually… no you are a fucking genius.
      you should be head of the UFC.
      douche.

      • Reg says:

        give your head a shake. the co-main event featured a guy who hasnt fought in the ufc for 7 years and is on a 1 fight win streak. ufc is to blame. smh

      • magoo says:

        Aaah a disgruntled fan, it’s only 1 card dude relax!!!! Or are you gonna start convulsing ……lmao

        • Big J says:

          Easy for you to say, “it’s only one main event,” but to many of the lower ranked fighters, this is their livelihood. They spend money on coaches, training partners, etc, and now b/c of Jone’s selfishness, they can’t earn their fight money to pay their overhead.

        • Reg says:

          for sure. totally agree. but it should be up to their employer (the ufc) to compensate them for any losses. not jbj.

    • Mike Rivera says:

      Some where out there Rahad Evans is smiling saying I told you… lol dam Rashad we should have listen when you warned us…..

    • primalmasher says:

      bich please, the ones who should be sorry are greg strike n bike jackson along with jonny bitch jones. they disrespected the UFC and the sport as a whole, and people like that don’t deserve your misguided support no matter how benign. these men single handedly stole money from lower tier fighters trying to make ends meet.

      • B_lum says:

        Tell Dana to put together a better card the . Main events get cancelled all the time, but entire shows never get cancelled. Why couldnt they bump the co main event up..? Oh wait…

        • Pancho says:

          Agreed B_lum

        • UFC FAN says:

          I think you have to be more open minded about the bigger picture instead of “jon jones’s situation.” Don’t you think you have some responsibility as the “Champion” to make the best out of the situation? You say the rest of the card wasn’t good…..but what about the potential FOTN or KOTH’s that the undercards could’ve brought to the table. With the UFC growing so fast, it’s only natural to put on more cards with more unnamed fighters to build their stake. I feel Jon Jones could’ve stepped up to the plate on this one but did not. Who did he let down, first his BOSS, the fans, and the rest of the fighters. Fighters should have to forfeit the match if they want to refuse a fight under these conditions…..

      • hah says:

        “strike n bike” lol thats hilarious. After the Condit/Guida tactics of running away now Jackson is telling his fighter to not fight at all.

  7. 123 says:

    i hope lyoto machida humbles this immature hypocrite.

  8. pthance says:

    Jon needs to get a prescription for TRT cause he clearly has no balls.

  9. KingKamehameha says:

    Everybody getting all mad at Bones, but what about Dana? Why dey neva ask sumbody else to step up? Sonnen offered, but nobody else got offered?? Dana dont call him a coward wen ur at fault too, for booking a crappy co mainevent also.

    • Brenden says:

      Regardless of whatever it is your trying to type, when jones said he didnt want to fight sonnen, he showed he doesnt respect the fans or other fighters. He had a chance to actually make some fans and help the company that helped make him a superstar by fighting someone taking the fight on just as short a notice but without the luxury of a full camp behind him, and refused. The guy’s a selfish brat

      • KingKamehameha says:

        Ok he’s a selfish brat so what get over it. Doesn’t mean you have to cancel an entire card because the champ doesn’t wanna take a fight on 8 days notice. Machida got offered to step up, but he turned it down, and yet no one is bitching about him. Dana could’ve put this on free tv with Ellenberger main eventing, they did before with Couture vs Vera, but because it’s Jon Jones, a young up and comming dominant champion everybody getting their panties twisted. Blame the UFC for not doing anything else about it, not only Jones. And besides, as much as I like Sonnen too, didn’t he say he would leave MMA if he lost to Silva?? Point is Sonnen is more of a threat to Jones’ title then Machida, and he wants Sonnen to prove himself instead of talking his way to a title fight. The dude just got destroyed by Silva, but Dana’s ok with him going after another title?? Yeah Dana, all you see is dollar signs and don’t care about your workers. Why not ask Benavidez and Johnson if they were willing to fight a few weeks earlier?? Don’t blame Jones for this event getting cancelled, yeah people already hate the guy, but like him or not he is a hell of a fighter and I respect him for that. And what would he gain if he won?? Nothing, cause he would beat a guy who just lost to the Middleweight Champion. And if he lost, there goes his title and his pound for pound ranking. It’s lose-lose for Jones. Get over it.

        • ohplease says:

          Are you seriously that retarded? He said he made MULTIPLE phone calls and chael was the only one willing to take on JJ without any camp or conditioning WHATSOEVER. The fact that jon jones is too worried about his “legacy” to shut up and man the fuck up and fight a man who is smaller, undertrained, and underqualified for the sake of the company. You know, the company who made him rich enough to smash bentleys around telephone poles. He a bitch and has lost all my respect. You’re all about the money? Sir you’re not getting another dollar out of my pocket, thats a fact.

        • Brenden says:

          Ohhh okay your absolutely right, dana white is dumb for not calling up fox and booking a primetime spot on 8 days notice so it could be a free fight night. You stupid? Maybe i would respect jones if he didnt constantly show how immature and selfish he was. He gets drunk and gets behind the wheel and potentially puts other people at risk but i should respect him because he wins fights? It’s about more than just winning, it’s also conducting yourself like a champion inside and outside of the octagon. Something jones has yet to do. And if he won he would have actually gained some fans for doing what all the champions before him have done and stepped up short notice or not

        • KingKamehameha says:

          It’s just a suggestion, I know I ain’t the UFC but I would’ve call EVERYBODY ON THE DAMN ROSTER to try salvage the event. You can’t only blame Jon. What about Machida?? He turned down the fight on 8 days notice, then turned it down again when they would headline 152. Yeah Jones took the easy way out instead of being a true champion, but are you a fighter?? Both of you do you mentally and physically prepare yourself for fights. If you do then you know where I’m comming from. Jones lost my respect too as a person, as I believe if you’re a champ conduct yourself like one. Silva now gained all my respect as he offered to take a fight on 8 days notice at 205, but what about everyone else?? I know this is BJs site but nobodys bashin him for waiting for Rory. Why couldn’t the flyweights get asked to be bumped up? What about the other big name fighters that could sell PPV’s?? Im just saying you shouldn’t bash one guy for a show getting cancelled when he isn’t the only person at fault to it being cancelled. Hendo got injured oh well shit happens. The show must go on, and obviously Dana them folded under confusion.

        • Brenden says:

          Trust me, i know it’s not only jones fault. No ppv should ever bank off of one fight to sell the whole card, that was stupid to do, especially with all the bad luck they’ve had with injuries. It’s just messed up that he denied the fight knowing the card would be canceled, and the same goes for machida and shogun. Im glad machida lost his title shot for this. Im just annoyed jones wont be facing any real consequences

        • KingKamehameha says:

          Why should he face consequences?? He turned down a fight he felt he would lose. Anderson turned down Weidman, but now he’s a savior for trying to salvage 151?? MMA is a confusing sport. And they call Pro Wrestling fake, when this is the biggest scam ever.

  10. bob johnson says:

    All these fighters need to start telling Dana to make this FREE for the fans and the fighters

  11. Mike Rivera says:

    Some where out there Rahad Evans is smiling saying I told you… lol

  12. Mike Rivera says:

    Some where out there Rahad Evans is smiling saying I told you… lol dam Rashad we should have listen when you warned us.

  13. Tina says:

    Jon jones sucks!

  14. Coots says:

    I will never buy a Jon jones ppv! Ever, no money will go from my pocket to his! Should strip him of his belt and send him his papers! Everybody knows bones gets boned from Jackson

  15. Mike says:

    Nike might be regretting all the money invested now. lol

  16. Chael "the Fail" Sonnen says:

    Fuck Dana!!!!!!

  17. wookie says:

    I don’t blame Jones for turning down a new opponent 8 days before a fight. That’s not cowardice that’s smart fighting strategy. It’s not Jones fault that they built such a weak undercard that the whole thing had to be scrapped. The fact that Chael volunteered himself as a replacement for Hendo does not make him deserving of the opportunity. He’s lost his last two fights, why should he get a title shot? I get why Dana White is disappointed, but to put all the blame on Jones seems unfair. Jones trained for a specific fight with a particular fighter. How does it benefit him to throw out all of his strategy and fight a last minute replacement? And besides, Sonnnen simply isn’t worthy of the opportunity. He needs to earn his shot.

  18. Hydro says:

    wookie and all other jones supporters are faggots. jones shoulda stepped up and saved the card, he would have been praised by many others not to mention chael and dan have a similar style minus the big rihgt hand, which makes it easier, also what hapnd to jon jones on twitter talking bout “chael at least dis respect me like a man to my face” well there was your chance and he ran like the bitch i and many others knew he was. f#$% jon ***** ass jones

  19. You can blame Jon Jones all you want, but it wouldn’t be fair. Don’t blame someone for being terrified…I wouldn’t want to get in the ring with Sonnen either. Jon Jones is afraid…afraid of losing his belt…afraid of losing his fame…afraid of losing his money and most importantly afraid of getting hurt…all logical fears. If you want to blame someone blame Dana White. He’s been getting soft for quite some time. A) he has kicked fighters out of the UFC for their poor actions more than once…only to fold like a house of cards and let them back…not years later, but weeks. B) The present…he cancels UFC151…why? So what if Jones doesn’t want to fight…let Sonnen fight someone else…he’s shown he will do whatever it takes to help out while Jones sits on the couch eating potato chips. White could have brought in another fight…or hey, here’s an idea, run this event without a main event…reduce the PPV cost to something a little more affordable or call in a last minute deal on FOX or another major network…do something. Listen…UFC fans are diehard fans…they wouldn’t turn their back on the sport anymore than Sonnen would…we would have stepped up and supported the event and the other fighters that trained hard for a payday. White…you folded…you caved…you just inflated Jones head more…he’s not relevant…he’s a tool. What did you do instead…you’ve already booked him against Machida…mistake! I would have told Jones, “I know Machida is next in line, but we’re changing things up a bit…you’re next fight is Sonnen. It can be in 8 days where you actually have a chance to beat him…or you can wait until he’s primed and ready to eat you up in the cage…the choice is yours. Machida will fight the winner of that fight…period! Make your choice loser.” Dana has lost all of his ability to intelligently defend the sport…he’s soft. Listen Dana, if you need someone to consult with, give me a call. If Jones is looking for an easy fight…let me know, I might just jump in ring with him…who knows I might just beat him…but not Sonnen…never…I’m not looking to spend my days in a wheelchair…evidently neither is Jones.

  20. stephen riddle says:

    What if a fighter loses their house or something over this shit! Bones youre a bitch u wont fight a dude that hasnt had a training camp, hasnt had a fight at 205 in forever! Jones just turned this down because hes jbj and he knows he can get away with it, what a bitch, i was a fan but never more.

  21. TigerUppercut says:

    People blaming Bones for the card being cancelled are not being rational. Yes I am pissed he didn’t take the fight, he’d have a huge advantage being one of the bigger LHW and Chael only having 8 days notice. He’d get paid better than he would have for fighting Machida (after he said “nobody is interested in THAT fight, I wanna fight guys that the fans wanna see, fights that will draw HUGE PPV buys…”). He should have taking the fight, period. Making it a non-title fight would stain it as not as exciting, and I doubt that is why he won’t take it, it’s because Greg Jackson would need more time to come up with a “game plan”. Bones is more worried about his record and image than the belt itself.

    But it is not Bones fault the card is being cancelled, that’s on the UFC. All the other fighters can be disappointed/surprised that Jones said no to a fight, but he didn’t personally say “Cancel the whole thing”. They could still put the show on, take the losses that would come from a card without a real main event, and pay the fighters that showed up per their contracts. I wonder what recourse they all have considering every single one of them agreed to fight each other on said date for said amount of money, and they are not the ones not fulfilling their contracts… I could go on and on, but if you are irrational enough to blame all of this on Jon Jones, than you aren’t rational enough to understand most of this comment. One more point, WHY can’t Machida fight Jones on THIS card??? It’s like a 2 week difference and surely he’s in fight shape still and already knows what he wants to do in the rematch…

    • KingKamehameha says:

      He got offered, but turned it down like a bitch too. Everybody all pissed with Bones, but not Machida?? Machida gonna get choked unconcious again

      • Yo says:

        King Kamehameha would’ve fought Sonnen.and Machida at the same time.

        • KingKamehameha says:

          And Shogun, who turned down the chance when Machida bailed again. I wanna see if Dana gonna bitch about that since Machida hounded Dana for another title shot, then turned it down….

        • toneloc2424 says:

          Jones signed a contract to fight on that date and he had a full training camp, machida and shogun didnt. People complaining about a weak card are stupid. This card was always gunna be the Jon Jones card, the people who bought tickets bought them to watch him fight. Jones should remember that the UFC made him into the star he is and he couldnt do this one favor they asked of him. How about when the stuck by his side through the DWI or when they sponsered him in the Rashad fight so he could close his Nike deal. Hes a selfish coward and should get his walking papers today

  22. Fuck Jon Jones the Little Bitch! says:

    Jon Jones is a Selfish ass little ***** ass little Bitch! Fuck him!!!

  23. G says:

    I bet Charlie Brenneman understands Jon Jones’ decision — because he LOST his short-notice fight with Rick Story. LOL. You don’t see him tweeting, attacking Jones.

    • You sir,are a moron. says:

      Actually, if you would have read the other fighters in this cards tweets (see above).charlie said jones should pay his rent for him,preferably by the first……

    • Knowledge says:

      Knowledge is everything. So when you arguing for something, check your facts first. Brenneman won the fight against Story, so he’s a perfect example that you can win a short-notice-fight. On top of that you can clearly read that he has no sympathy for Jones, since he’s asking for a check to pay the rent.

  24. Laurie says:

    Jones is a selfish wuss (wanted to put another word there, but I don’t know everyone age) The Jackson camp sucks. They took an exciting fighter in clay and made him run around like a scared monkey. Any cred he had is gone. That camp doesn’t come to fight, it comes to win any way possible. Even if that is to put on crappy fights. BOOOOO to Jones and Jackson. Just to scared to lose the belt. Friggen scardy cat!

  25. Gabz says:

    Jones isnt responsible for a faield back up plan or a mediocre card. Having said that. In all seriousness a fighter is a fighter it’s what you do you fight all comers and dont ever duck anyone or you lose the prestige of being a true champ. Jones could of came out smelling likes roses got the fans and ufc on side and milked this chael sonnen stuff for ages…however sadly the ufc has some previous experience with GJ and this become a shit fight… I kinda feel sorry for jones for being blamed and led down the wrong path…but lets be real here who really gives a 185lb a title shot with no LHW wins recently? its a bit weak on UFC part…. in their defense it would of pleased the f*** outta the fans , myself included even though it sounds like a circus show more than a legitimate title shot.

  26. UFC FAN says:

    I wonder what Nike must be thinking now?

    I hope Machida takes the belt from him…..

  27. Jaimz White says:

    JBJ just lost all respect from the MMA community. He didnt care that many other fighters could lose a lot by not having this PPV. While he sits with his fat paydays. Jones proved he only cares about himself and not his fellow colleagues. What a sad day for someone I had high hopes of watching for a long time. Now the UFC will have to make him fight on a free card as no one will want to buy a PPV with JBJ on it.

  28. David says:

    Boycott Jones vs Machida. Let your money talk.

  29. KingKiller says:

    The champ takes on anyone … well at least a real champ does. Coming of a loss/win doesn’t matter , moving up/down weight doesn’t matter , you fight and whoop that ass cause your the champ! Whatever happened to looking at shit honestly the insane nut huggery of Jones fans is off the charts. He was right not to take the fight cause of this or that… man your the fuckin champ you fight and destroy whoever the fuck they put in front of you cause your the champ. When your the champ no matter what you can’t look like a bitch that shit costs you dollars.You could have fought Chael (who is just hendo with better gas mma wrestling minus the h bomb) made money and called it a day you should have known this shitstorm was coming asshole. I for one won’t even think about giving this guy a dollar of my money no ppv’s no nike shit I wont even go to the bar to watch a ppv he is on fuck that I will illegal stream that shit and cost that bitch money like he did all the undercard fighters!

  30. WHITEBELT4LIFE says:

    FIRST OF ALL…

    1) J.J.’S CLAIMED TO BE A MAN THAT THAT HE’S GROWN IN THE SPORT. CAN SOMEONE PLEASE TELL JJ THAT A MAN MAKE’S HIS OWN DECISIONS.

    2) CAN SOMEONE TELL JJ THAT HIS MANAGER WORKS FOR HIM, AND THUS IS HIS AGENT, NOT THE OTHER WAY AROUND. ALL FIGHTER’S HIRE MANAGERS AND THE MANAGERS HAVE A DUTY TO ACT ON BEHALF OF THE FIGHTER, WHO IS GREG JACKSON TO TELL JJ NOT TO TAKE THE FIGHT?

    3) SOMEONE SAID THIS ABOVE AND I’LL SAY IT TO…. “RASHAD YOUR WER RIGHT” CAN SOMEONE GET THIS SAYING ON A T-SHIRT?? IT’LL SELLOUT GUARANTEED.

    4) JJ TOLD RASHAD THAT THEY WOULD NEVER FIGHT EACH OTHER…. AND LATER WE FOUND OUT THAT HE LIED.

    5) JJ TOLD EVERYONE AFTER HIS FIGHTS THAT HE WOULD FIGHT ANYONE WHO THE UFC PUTS IN FRONT OF HIM… AND NOW WE KNOW THAT IS ALSO A LIE.

    6) SOMEONE TELL JJ THAT THE TRUTH IS LIVED NOT SPOKEN.

  31. Mick says:

    HOW ABOUT MACHIDA DECLINES THE FIGHT AND VITOR BELFORT IS THE NEW CHALLENGER OH NO I’VE GONE CROSS-EYED

  32. MEMO TO NIKE says:

    MEMO TO NIKE

    1) THE SPORT OF MMA IS UNLIKE BASKETBALL, FOOTBALL OR BASEBALL. PLEASE DO YOUR HOMEWORK BEFORE YOU FIND YOURSELF EMBARRASSED BY ONE OF YOUR ENDORSEES. IT’S OBVIOUS THAT NOBODY FROM NIKE PROPERLY VETTED JJ’S CHARACTER (i.e., propensity to wrap new Bentleys around telephone poles as a high rate of speed; propensity to act in one’s own interest to the detriment of teammates, fellow UFC fighters, UFC viewers (who actually pay his a$$ and are the reason for his notoriety, the UFC).

    2) DANA WHITE – HOW ABOUT YOU JUST LET JJ PICK ALL OF HIS FIGTS FROM HERE ON OUT? WHY NOT? FURTHERMORE, DOES THIS SET PRECEDENT FOR PRISSY A$$ CHAMPION FIGHTERS? OR CAN ALL FIGHTER PULL THE JJ CARD NOW? OR IS THIS MERELY AN EXCEPTION TO THE RULE TO FIGHT EVERYONE (THE JONE JONES RULE).

    3) BACK TO NIKE… HEY NIKE, HOW ARE ALL OF YOU BANDWAGON EXECUTIVES FEELING NOW? JUST A DAY OR 2 AGO YOU WERE JAZZED UP ABOUT ATTENDING THE FIGHT TO SEE YOUR BOY. COME TO FIND OUT YOUR BOY HAS NO NUTZ.

    4) NIKE… WITH ALL OF THE BACKLASH HOW ABOUT YOU TAKE YOUR NEW “MICHAEL JORDAN OF THE MMA” OUT FOR A DRINK. I THINK HE’S A BIT THIRSTY.

    5) NIKE HOW DOES IT FEEL TO HAVE TO SPEND A MONEY ON DAMAGE CONTROL?

    ——————– END OF MEMO—————-

    BACK TO MY RANT….

    1) JJ – FIGHTING IS YOUR JOB NOT YOUR JOBE. TRY FIGURING THAT OUT WHILE YOUR AT HOME WHEN YOU SHOULD BE FIGHTING.

    Seriously….. I hear jones is scared? Of sonnen? Does that really make sense. Ufc flopped providing what must habe been a weak ppv. Like boxing this event ws cancelled due to one fight. Stop being wwf fans. Ditch the affliction shirts and pay closer attention. Its his belt 8 days notice is worth alot. Sonnen really not like hendobeing a south paw and more dependnt on wrestling.jbj deserves calling in shots. 4 fights one yr and destroyed legends.his name increases fighters paychecks just by being on a card. And he would make more money selling a card when it is promoted for more than 8 days. Imagine the hype of this card if it had 2 months of shit talking and tv facetime. Imagine how much more people will watch hoping he would lose. I respect jones for making a choice rightfully his knowing how much it would affect him. A guy who took down a purse thief on the day of his title fight.

      Donkeyballs you need to get off of JBJ’s dick I’m tired of hearing you fuckin nuthuggers trying to defend the biggest ***** in the UFC. Jones is a complete & utter paper champ & should have his title taken away & sent to the WWE where he can pick & chose who & when to fight. This is the UFC & a TRUE CHAMP would take on anyone that wants a title shot.

    Yep, I guess Rashad was right about arrogant Bones Jones. Alot of respect for Chael.

    Oh well no matter to Jonny, he’s got his Nike deal. Who cares about anyone elses bank accounts and bills to pay.

    I predict that this is the beggining of the end for Bones Jones domination. It’s called Karma. ~Bob’O

  35. Jenkins says:

    LOL so the only excuse you JBJ nut huggers have is that ‘Chael doesn’t deserve it’ but yet now Bones is fighting another MW who hasn’t fought any LHW’s… That excuse is officially null and void and Bones has been exposed as a chicken shit.

    And Jones can’t write a good book, either!

    When you are the champ you have to set the presidence,fight the neat they put I’m front of you!!! If your previous oppenant pulls out you fight the next best guy. This isn’t F***ing bad mitton this is mma if your prepared and I’m shape it doesn’t matter who is across from you. Sonnen realises this on all levels, he wants the shot, he wants the challenge, he understands the lower level guys NEED to fight, he under stands the hype, the glory, and the pain of defeat. You have to always put it on the line to call yourself the Champ. He has been in traing camp to face Hendo, CS has been going through his routine waiting for his next fight, commentating on fights and gen. Mma shit but jumped at the chance to step into the ring against the biggest killer of his generation on F***ing 8 days notice. Jones you were always the guy who amazed me on every fight but I lost all respect for you after this, the situation is not ideal but CS hasn’t even been hitting pads and you wouldn’t take the fight?????? I can remember a short time ago when you were a up and comer and you STOLE the opportunity for
    Those guys to pay rent and feed their families. I hope you have a small mirror to look at I’m the morning!!!!!!! A mans character is always measured with how he deals with adversity in the worst situation’s in life, how do stack up???????

    If I was a fighter on the card, or someone who paid for the event, I may be dissappointed in Jon Jones, but I would be pissed at Dana White…Who cancels a whole damn card,making people lose out on millions of dollars ( combined,not per person) because the main draw would not take a fight.

    This is not the first time a main event fight was canceled…and when this happens, you just make the second best fight,become the main event. No matter what,the show must go on. There are many people who would have stepped up for Dana and fought….but maybe not fight the champion.

    Not to mention that according to Dana himself, no one would step up to fight Jon Jones…except Chael. So everyone else that was offered the fight are also p#ssies.Machida Included.

    Put it this way…your boss tells you to show up saturday at work.You will get paid overtime. But one of your coworkers has plans, and refuses. So the boss says that if he doesnt show up, then he will just cancel the overtime. Would you be mad at the coworker, or the boss.
    And if you are one of the people who say the coworker, what if you were the coworker. You have to do something you dont want to do, because your boss is gonna take it out on everyone else. The boss is the A hole, not the coworker.

    Blame Dana, not Jon Jones.No one under the ufc umbrella will say this, but you know its true.
