    You're stupid (and wrong) if you'd rather hear dozens of non-personalities spew stupid tropes about 'giving it their all' and 'I'm going to knock my opponent out' then have an actual personality in MMA.

    Jon Jones is a brat and being a good fighter doesn't mean you get to be a petulant child. Don't feed me **** about 'oh well it's not Jon Jones' fault the card was cancelled' because Jon Jones either knew that card was built around his fight or he's an idiot (also possible because he got drunk as hell and crashed his Bentley). He refused to fight two middleweights who didn't have a proper training camp and that makes him a punk.
    "That was the only way you could destroy me. Neither do I quail at death nor act in deference to any god. So drop your talk, I come resolved to die. But first, there are these gifts I bring for you." At once he hurled a javelin at his enemy, then sent another and another still straight to the mark. - Virgil's The Aeneid

    Dana didn't have to cancel the card.

    You know, I kind of hope this situation keeps spiraling out of control, like in George Carlin's "I like it when a lot of people die" bit.

    Personally, I think we should blame the guy who shot in for a takedown, of such epic proportions, that Dan Henderson threw out his knee trying to defend it:

    http://sports.yahoo.com/news/mma--da...placement.html

    Henderson said Thursday he injured his knee while defending a takedown in practice. He said it won't require surgery, but doctors advised him to stay completely off of it for three weeks. He said the knee "is pretty unstable right now."
    Why hasn't he (or she) been thrown under the bus...

    actually why is everyone so nice for hendo? he injured himself weeks ago, he could at least have had the UFC into the loop.

    Because it's a wonderful opportunity to hate on Jon Jones. Who is, you know, so FAKE and ARROGANT, according to the internet.

    Citation please. And if true then he should answer why he waited.

    Apparently Hendo can do no wrong, even though what he did was conceal a fight-killing injury until it was too late to get a replacement.

    Greg Jackson's response makes Dana White look like a child having a tantrum.



    Edit: http://www.bloodyelbow.com/2012/8/24...njury-mma-news
    From Hendo's coach:
    Dan Henderson got hurt three weeks ago during sparring when he went to defend a takedown and for a while he had to be away from training, for two to three weeks. It was very difficult for him to refuse the fight. All the team had to convince him not to do it.

    From Hendo's coach:
    Thanks. Definitely a double standard. I imagine if it was reversed and Jones was the injured party that tried to work through it for three weeks, Jones would still be catching grief.
