There's not an ounce of fighter in him. He's pure athlete. Nothing more. Put him in a baseball jersey and send him off please.
No, in my next post i answered W.Silva>C.Norris's question which asked if any other champion not named anderson did this and i pointed out two. I was not attempting to justify anything in the second post
So in your first post you stick up for Jones and state these claims are all bullshit made up by Dana to sell fights...
In the next post, you attempt to justify the Jon's actions by claiming both Aldo and GSP did the same thing (ducking fights).
Depends how you are looking at the situation. If its Dana flipping the fuck out an announcing fights early - like they did with Glover it can be justified - especially if they are talking about moving this fight to Sweden still. Sorry, call be a nutthugger or what have you - but im its bullshit if they make him go defend the belt in the challengers hometown rather than Vegas or a neutral site.
Which is it, fake or a justified move by Jones?
I see a couple things wrong with your logic.. just because other champs have done it doesn't mean it isnt a douche move. I remember both Aldo and GSP catching heat for their actions
Once again, answering a question from an above post - who made it seem like its only Jones and Anderson who have done it - when in reality the majority of champions do it. Weather or not they caught heat for it is irrelevant to me.
Okay, so because he finished Mendes (in controversial fashion) He can say that Chad who was on a 5 fight win streak over a 2 year period since his fight with Aldo isnt worthy of a title shot because he didnt beat anyone in the top 10...boy that sounds a little familiar...didnt Jones take a bunch of heat for saying that same thing about DC?
A second point worth noting is, Aldo finished Mendes in the first round. GSP had not almost been dethroned by Diaz.. Where as Jones was almost beat by Gus, some would even claim it was a shitty decision which should have gone Gus's way. Gus deserves another shot at Jones.. Diaz didnt deserve a shot at GSP.
And the GSP argument was him choosing Diaz, over Hendricks who everyone said was the real #1 contender.
Chad Mendes is still starting, haven't fought anyone ranked yet, only fought guys that are not that good. He's coming off good wins, but he hasn't beaten good guys. So I believe the next two should be Ricardo Lamas and Cub Swanson."
