    JLau sez:

    UFC 151 is cancelled. Jon Jones was supposed to fight Dan Henderson, but Dan had to pull out because he tore his MCL and his knee is unstable even walking. There is no way that Dan can fight. Chael Sonnen has volunteered to fight Jon Jones, someone that EVERYONE else turned down because its Jones and its short notice… and Jon turned down Chael. As a result, the UFC was forced to cancel the entire show.

    Not only has this screwed over all the fans that bought tickets, non refundable airfare, took off work, made arrangements, etc… but think of all the fighters. Fighters that put in full camps, flew people in that helped them trains, etc. By the time I am actually fight, I spend close to 20k between corners, flights, expenses, coaches, etc… and then to have the whole show cancelled because ONE guy didn’t want to fight. This ONE guy that had trained an entire camp, who was the CHAMP and at the top of his weight class, who was going to fight someone who didn’t do the camp, and was fighting UP a weight class.

    I have always been a big Jon Jones supporter… but I would be FURIOUS if this happenned to me and I was on the card. To call is scorched earth wouldn’t do it justice.

    I would say the same thing to Jon's face.
    You said the **** from behind your computer screen from hundreds of miles away..just like I said.

    So, I see the sarcasm was correct.

    Are you trying to tell me that I can't criticize Jones' decision because I'm not a fighter? Is that what you're saying?

    Spoiler:
    Cause you know, that would be a retarted thing to say

    Not only isn't that anywhere in my posts, you are the guy that trots out that excuse, when the person is a fighter, not me.

    Edit:

    I like the spoiler you added. So, you are retarded.

    Oh I see, so you're just randomly stating the fact that I'm not a fighter.

    What point were you trying to make here?

    Nope, it has a purpose.

    Do you even have a point to make?
    It was already made, but In your haste to dissect my post you missed my point.

    I'm not into much the drama much, but it looks like they're throwing Jones under the bus for their ****-ups. Yes he should've taken the fight, but all the last events had low turnouts -except for Silva-Sonnen - and we injury ridden. They should have contingency, it's a multi-million dollar business. Blaming Jones for other fighters not earning is just low.

    Anyway Jones is an idiot for not taking the opportunity to polish his image. He should've had them announce Hendo's injury, suspend everything and then be hailed as savior for coming to the rescue. A bit of 1-2 P.R. and everybody wins.

    The first time, maybe.

    The second time, I suspect you were just trying to be an asshole.

    The first time? I only brought it up once. You dissected the post and I LEFT IT ALONE. Did you miss that part? You posted a link and just like pizdoff, sarcasm fails you and you get foot stomping mad

    I am always an asshole and apparently you still have trouble reading.

    It's funny how Sonnen went from a **** talking Muppet to a savior and Jones is in the dog house.

    Anyway, I'd love for the entire story to come out. I wouldn't be the least bit surprised if CS was offered up for draw potential and Jones said nope "I'm not doing that asshole any favors."
