    Again what fight did he pull out of? The answer is none. He fulfilled his obligations

    Once again, the fight was scrapped becasue HENDO pulled out of the fight. Jone cant "pull out of a fight" that isnt scheduled (see sonnen after hendo pulled out). Should he have fought, absoultely, bur that doesnt mean he pulled out of the fight.

    Also, UFC 169, 170, and 171 say hello.
    Do they? Now who do they say hello to? because not once was he officially scheduled to fight on any of those cards.

    Henderson pulled out of 151, not Jones. What Jones did was get some bad management advice. He still fought both of his replacements next......and people still complained about it. Jones never pulled out of 169 170 or 171. He was rumored to be the main event, but the whole fight, opponent and all got moved. To my understanding it was never set in stone that he was fighting on any of those cards.

    I get giving Jones flack for 151 but he has never actually pulled out from a fight no matter how you want to twist history.
