I would think that jones would love the opportunity to put a beatdown on sonnen especially after all the trash talking. These guys are pro f!ghters and train every day. Who cares if its on short notice? Jones could have won, an added a lot to his reputation if he would have destroyed sonnen worse than silva did. But jones has money (nike) riding on him. A win over a late replacement would do little for him. But chael is a world class wrestler and that would put an end to the people that believe he would struggle against a dominant wrestler.

It's an unfortunate situation but oh well. He was all set for the original agreement and someone else went and hurt themselves thats not his fault And doesnt involve him. Them other f!ghters should step there game up and headline there own event instead of relying on another man to feed your family a n*gga ain't tryna hear that.
Seriously? f!ghters have to start somewhere and this event was one week away. Way to fu*k over the fans and f!ghters

I see some people who tried to call out Spider for not f!ghting Weidman, backing Jones when he did the exact same thing.

Nobody wants to f!ght the champ on short notice without reaching their peak in training, that's signing ur death warrant and pretty much f!ghting for the paycheck, cause u are not getting the W.. Sonnen stepped up and said yes, jones should f!ght him... Mister "I'll f!ght anyone they put in front of me" now I hope machida ko'd this fu*king guy, or give him rashad again..


Let rashad get the belt!!

Look at it like this: when there's a sub in for a f!ght, it's always someone who is lower on the totem pole.

this was a situation where, not only would it be an easier f!ght for Jones(sonnen's such an easy target at this point), but you have a guy who's gonna bring in some extra buys to the event as well. Cheal doesn't deserve this f!ght, I agree. But really now, a lot of people don't "deserve" sh*t in the world. Lets get off that, because life isn't about fairness or deserving.

This is a sport where you beat the sh*t out of the next man in front of you. What does it say when one of the top guys turns down a f!ght like this? Is it justified to pull their man card?

You can't just "step up and headline your own event" like it's some easy sh*t to do. What the fu*k...When a card is canned because a champ feels like ducking a f!ght he'd surely win, it fu*ks a chance for one of these other guys to build their record up, and eventually headline in the future. One guy just screwed over everyone involved with this event(and it wasn't Henderson.)

Indeed. But this was something that should have been negotiated and worked out behind closed doors like a real business, this whole situation is sloppy and I can't blame a f!ghter that's making a business decision while the owner is crying at the media.

The reactions in support of Jones make zero sense... this entire debacle is just dumbfounding

the only part that makes sense is that this was all Greg Jackson's idea You can't f!ght any safer than this

A whole card is cancelled because he didn't take the f!ght. Nobody is getting paid now. People fly in to see a show that isn't happening anymore. "The show must go on".

Lower himself? Chael just fought for the middleweight title.
The card got cancelled cuz Dana did it. He made a sh*tty card with no co main and no other good f!ghts.

Dana offered it to Chael because that would have gotten the biggest numbers. He said he called other ppl but who else would there have been?

Chris Weidman stepped up too

Ariel Helwani ‏@arielhelwani

Mr. @ChrisWeidmanUFC says he offered to f!ght @jonnybones next week, as well

All of these 185er's stepping up where are the 205er's at?

"I didn't think [taking the f!ght] was the best thing to do on three days' notice -- we know that f!ght week doesn't count [as training time]," Jackson said. "If Chael is the No. 1 contender, if he's earned that status, we'd be happy to f!ght him, and not Machida, in Toronto. It wasn't the opponent. It was the notice."

I agree with you. But we're way past that point now.
