Dammit Bendo.....
No.... He signed a contract to fight Dan Henderson... not to fight on that night....
Jackson advised him not to fight, he didnt.

But Jones' spoiled brat tweets were more than enough to earn him the raw deal he got.
Jones was hated on far longer than some would let on... He was heavily booed ever since he fought Shogun.... even at the weigh ins...
Why should he treat the fans good if they dont show him respect... He always thanks his true fans, but knows how he is viewed by the majority of the MMA community...
People claim he is fake... Which I can see... but it is very strange for someone to be criticized for trying to hide their cockiness.
Personally I wish he would just give the fans what they want... He should have pulled a Lebron James and said something along the lines of Criticize me all you want, I make a ton of money doing what I love.
