n*ggas acting like Sonnen was the first one called when Hendo dropped...... he the only n*gga with the balls to get in there on 8 days notice that's all......


and he'd give Jones his paycheck. Bones could easily derail the LHW version of Sonnen hype with this f!ght. Dude has no time to do anything but try and make weight which aint a good look for any f!ghter.


but @ the same time he has the right so

either way Chael wins cause he buried Jones on ESPN. Dana will give him 2 pushover f!ghts and he'll have a shot by late next summer anyway. Don't mean he'll win , but he'll have a better chance too at least.

noooooo bro a f!ght where the champ might not win sells WAY more then a f!ght everyone knows who will win. He put GSP an Silva against each other so fans can see one loose same with pac man an mayweather people wanna see the unbeatable loose a f!ght. When i say people i mean cats who watch mma not for the love of the sport but to see someone get there head beat in ya know. Fans watch for the sport PEOPLE watch whats hot an most PEOPLE watch to see someone loose not so much as someone winning. theres plenty people who watch an dont know sh*t about mma actually a lot of em. you shouldnt have commented
This is the wrong board to talk MMA

Sonnen took the f!ght with 8 days notice because he had nothing to lose, everything to gain. Even when he loses he wins...he just LOST to Anderson, and he WON a title shot in a heavier division. Where they do that at? the UFC that's where...

Jones has the LHW Title, UFC Sponsorship, and brand new Nike Sponsorship possibly on the line... on 8 days notice.

Finally! Some intelligence and not just that stupid Dana White talk about f!ghters f!ght and being scared. You think any other champion would risk losing their championship with hardly any time to prepare for the love of the sport? Fuggouttahere!

I'm not a big UFC fan but reading that article it's clear to see why Dana is sh*tting on Bones.

White is pissed only because he's losing a sh*t load of money if Jones does not f!ght at that venue. Massive hit in PPV sales, and a delay on one of their, if not there top money makers in PPV's for the UFC. Dana treats his f!ghters like slaves, and he doesn't give a fu*k how much time you have to prepare as long as you get your a.ss in that ring and push his UFC product.

Jones on the other hand, is a smart professional, who's not about to risk endorsement money and his hot buzz with just 8 days to prepare for a new game plan against another f!ghter. Clearly Jones has smart advisers, who are looking out for HIS best interest, not the interest of Dana White, who'll throw you by the waste side in a second.

How can you be mad at Jones for refusing this sh*t?

You due realize Sonnen (and Frank Mir, Brock Lesnar) are the only UFC f!ghters who can lose continuously and still keep getting title shots out the a.ss. Ask Gray Maynard or the Diaz brothers or Shane Carwin or Rampage or even Machida how long it takes to get another title shot after they lose a f!ght to the champ of their division?
Well all the other cowards at 205 that were offered turned it down before Sonnen was asked, sonnen was probably 4th or 5th choice. Nearly every f!ghter will have to f!ght others on short notice, Bisping and Chael was made a week beforehand. Mr "i will f!ght anybody" is full of fu*king sh*t and i hope that donkey Belfort beats him

It might look bad on Dana White when he throws a fit like he did yesterday, but Dana probably feels so strongly about this kind of thing because he rewards f!ghters who take risky f!ghts to save the company's a.ss... He also just likes fearless guys, he knows those guys will always draw fans...

And i think outside of anyone who stood to make money off of UFC 151, no one is mad at Jones... They're just wondering where the risk was on Jones's side. He had a lot more to gain from taking the f!ght, and he's already lost a lot by not doing so.

kinda wack I would applaud him if he waited for Henderson to get healthy to have the f!ght
but hes going to f!ght a loser 19days later now thats weak the champ should either
1. wait for the injured opponent to be ready

or

2. take whatever challenger wants to step up to him

its not like either will beat him anyway

I swear some of you are remedial.

BEFORE COMMENTING READ THE fu*kING ARTICLE. They didn't "give" Chael a championship f!ght. He was the ONLY ONE TO ACCEPT the f!ght. Others declined to f!ght Jones. THE ONLY REASON CHAEL WAS GOING TO f!ght JONES IS BECAUSE OTHERS DECLINED TO DO SO.

Stop with the, "UFC gives title shots to Chael blah blah" ya fu*king retards. Bunch of illiterate pieces of sh*t on this forum.
