Not obligated, its still on Joe Silva and the UFC to make the fight. If the UFC came to Bones and said "Beltran is next up" imo Jones should say "Yes sir, thank you sir" and get in and start training. If your the best and believe you are the best the opponent shouldnt matter.
To be honest, outside of Glover, Cormier and Sonnen i dont hear many people calling out Jon Jones.
Chael says it best "If your all scared of a 23 year old kid turn your gloves in, sign the pink slip and show yourself the door, the one guy that says he gets to fight him comes out and says "but i dont want to fight him.." well if you dont wanna fight him...go!! this is a business to become CHAMPION. All these guys wanna tell everybody they are in the UFC but dont want to carry the heavy water. Look challenge Jon Jones if you are at 205"
Ariel then asks; "i know you fight at 185, but if the UFC did offer you that fight (with jones) would you take it?"
Chael responds with; "I will fight any man god ever made, period."
^^^^thats how every fighter should be when it comes to fighting (IMO)
