how the fu*k are all of these f!ghters injuring themselves in practice ....


this is really gonna be the downfall for the ufc

they know they got a good healthcare plan so they decide to go all out while sparring ...knowing damn well he got a real f!ght next week ....this is bullsh*t
have you ever tried in any combat sport?

its easy to get injured. you can get injured sparring, grappling, rolling, wrestling. all it takes is 1 tiny misstep by you or your training partner. hell, it happens when youre learning and not even going all out for training camp

This is complete BS

sh*tt backfired on Dana though....forcing Henderson to fake an injury and sh*t...It ain't the first time he has a f!ghter fake an injury

I mean didn't Hendo post on twitter that he just had an amazing training session or some sh*tt right after the "broken news" broke out? correct me if I'm wrong...

but Dana saw wayyy more money in Sonnen vs Jones ...he just didn't expect Jones to not agree...so at the end of the day Dana played himself

you must be one of the most ignorant people ever. do you understand how stupid it is to have a f!ghter fake an injury A WEEK BEFORE THE f!ght. that offers very little time to promote it properly. thats how you lose buys, not gain more.

Yeah, but if that other guy is Chael Sonnen... Just sayin, this is a guy who helped draw the attention of sports fans and broadcasters who don't care one bit about the sport... Had every bit as much to do with Chael's mouth as Spider's greatness... And Jones been going at it with him already regardless... Easy f!ght with a sellable storyline and a hell of a salesman, you can't get a better plan B with the rest of the division being either busy or unworthy

Because hes not scared to step up on 8 days notice. And he just lost a title f!ght, people acting like he lost on the under card and sh*t

The ignorance in this thread


It is 100% a pus*y move by Jones... ESPECIALLY considering he's the champ

Anyone who's ever wrestled, boxed, or did MMA knows this.

hows it a bi*ch a.ss move, Chael doesnt deserve that f!ght and its a huge waste of time

just because dude opened his mouth doesnt mean jones should lower himself and f!ght this bum
Lol It doesn't get any lower than rejecting an opponent. I hate chael, but he manned up. give props for that. Jones was the punk in this situation. If chael is such a joke why not smash him.

Hahahahaha at most of the people defending jones, been he's now f!ghting someone else he already beat instead. After he already said he didn't want to bc of the numbers of ppv sales. Chael is a ppv machine and jones would of made a sh*tton. He's reasOn and logic switched quick. Money and respect is enough to gain, now even if he beats machida he doesn't gain as much

Gains more out of a Sonnen f!ght than any other.

Sonnen just fought in the biggest UFC ever.

Dominated the GOAT Silva for 5 out of 7 rounds in the 2 f!ghts.

You don't know MMA if you think Sonnen isn't worthy.
5 out of 7 rounds

He lost both and got k!lled in the most recent one

Jon Jones just signed a multi-year deal with NIKE... PPV buys dont mean $hit to him anymore.
Dana White is thinking Dollars...not Sense.

The whole event is being cancelled? its a joke he should f!ght someone. I even said Sonnen didnt deserve a shot for just trash talking but now they need a last minute replacement thats when people who dont deserve shots get shots so cards dont fall apart

Jones said he didnt want Machida because he wasnt a big enough draw so now he would rather f!ght nobody because Dana is gonna pay him to sit on his arse presumably

I respect Jon Jones decision because at the end of the day it is HIS career & he's in CONTROL of his own business..

With that said, I think he should of took the f!ght especially with a guy who's moving up and has a similar background as dan henderson with less punching power. It's also debatable that Sonnen would of been an easier win for Jon than Hendo and Machida.

Dana is pissed and he went in on Jon Jones and Greg jackson

everyone in this thread is fu*king stupid.

jones has ppv numbers (for you Mongoloids, he gets a % of all ppv buys. he makes a gang of money) with chael he'll still get tons of buys. hes afraid hes not gonna get a lot of money and possibly lose the belt. if he doesn't f!ght, he gets 0 dollars but can hope for a bigger promoted next f!ght. he may not f!ght for a good half year to year from now lol

ufc is also the stupidest organization ever. how the fu*k do you not force the f!ghter to defend his belt. if he doesn't want to, make him give it up. they have belt holders and interim belt holders who don't want to f!ght.
afraid? he'd beat white boy's a.ss to the ground easier than he would have in his original f!ght. i love how people just keep throwing around the word pus*y or scared like he turned down a f!ght from an equal or superior f!ghter

The suits just mad a black workhorse is calling the shots. MY n*gga aint gotta worry about sh*t he gonna beat whoever a.ss they put in front of him from here on out anyway then fly out and catch his little brother in new england in a game

Wow you sir are a moron. Did you know that people actually train for title shots lol??? He was wrestling takedown defense, seeing how he's f!ghting a great wrestler. Ish happens but you wouldn't happen
