People also need to remember that Dan has been screwed multiple times by that same company.
Hendo beat Shogun on Nov. 19th, 2011.
Jones beat Machida on Dec. 10th, 2011.
Evans beat Davis on Jan. 28th, 2012.
Jones beat Evans on Apr. 21st, 2012.
Hendo was suppose to have the next title shot but instead had to wait an extra 2 months for Evans to have his fight then Evans to have his shot at Jones first. The UFC and Dana certainly should take some of the blame in causing Dan's injury in the first place forcing him to be out for such an extended time prior. If you were Dan and got screwed over and over by them wouldn't you wait until you knew for sure that you couldn't fight for the title before saying something?
Calling the man who will truly fight anyone, anytime, anywhere, at any weight class unprofessional is just absurd. GTFO.
