Turning down a fight with a 185er.....lawl
Sucks this won't be going down. RMPL has a BIG vacation...At-least I have some free Saturdays now :
a 185er with no training he would've almost certainly beat WITH training time
jones is taking fedor's "greatest fighter with the shittiest management" title
Dana ripped Jackson apart on that conference call
Greg will easily surpass Finkelstein
vadim was never real competition
whereas jackson is the enemy within
instant disrespect for jones. fuckin hope he gets broken from now on.
You know as much as I defend Chael here, I understand Jones turning him down. Chael Sonnen is #2 at 185, we have no clue how good he is as 205 as of right now. His last fight at 205 was quite a while ago. I personally don't think anyone should just be able to jump into a new league or weight division and expect a title shot without proving themselves good in that environment first.
With that being said, there is no reason Vitor should be fighting for the title if Chael was considered unworthy. That is fucking obnoxious. I can honestly say I have no clue what Jones is doing. I feel for him, because Hendo got injured, and that isn't his fault. But Vitor?
I absolutely expect you guys to refer to Vitor as a steroid abuser at every corner too, if not you are basically admitting possession of an extreme double standard.
Jones is pusssssssssssssssssssssssy
This is the same guy that said Machida was too much of a danger to fight? What the fuck? This guy is starting to annoy me as a champ
And he isn't facing Machida in Toronto...
something i was wondering though is if the chael fight would've been for the title. I know there was time to cut weight, but it's bad enough taking a fight on such short notice, and if you decide to eat up those few preparation days cutting weight - holy shit.
and honestly the chael fight was a high risk no reward situation for jones, i get that. what i don't like is i think it shows gaping holes in his self confidence. i didn't think anybody gave chael much of a chance against jones WITH a full training camp, but apparently Jon Jones and Greg Jackson do.
i also don't like that jones is so concerned with all of this already. the guy is still in his 20s and has probably passed older fedor's level of diva. i hate to see what happens when it's time to sign with the ufc again. will he hold them up until they build an arena?
he's great but holy shit. im almost hoping they announce bones vs overeem with kim winslow as referee and guaranteed no piss test for reem.
interesting tweet from 2010
jesus, the material is endless.
it's crazy how chael tries to be the heel professional wrestler and always ends up being the fucking hero lol
dana will make him fight chael eventually lol
bones' biggest fail will be that he is going to try and talk back to chael
I don't know...After Belfort fans will be asking for better opponents for Jones.
vitor is fast. dont count him out yet
