Not a single person has even suggested that Jones is scared. I will, however, say he's acting like a prick.

It's that he specifically said he didn't want a harder fighter for less money. To that:
1. You're the champ, you're supposed to look for difficult fights and challenge yourself. It's the reason BJ is a legend.
2. Anyone who whines about making, say, 300k in a single night instead of 310k, is an asshole.
3. Per (2), the difference in PPV buys between the Machida fight and the Shogun fight is noise, nothing more.
