    Haven't you got the memo, Jon Jones is actually the owner of the UFC, he's also Joe Silva in disguise....He makes all the big decisions and had been doing so since he was 12.....

    The roster is to large yet not one LHW [who should have been in the mix] was willing to step up and fight the champ on short notice?
    Too large for the tournament format, I mean.

    He has the power to take a short notice fight.

    A complete bullshit fight. Especially for the title. I still haven't heard if this was ever considered as a non-title fight, which makes a world of difference in my eyes.

    I doubt it even got discussed because Jones turned the matchup down outright because of his childish distain for Sonnen.

    And apparently he has to power to say NO to Dana White.....who should not have tried to make that fight in the first place. The fact that Sonnen was the ONLY guy willing to fight says more about the organization and the "contenders" in the LHW division than it does the champion. And I just don't buy Dana called EVERY LHW contender in the company. I mean how many did he really call? If Jones turned down any legit LHW contender, I would not be defending his decision. But Dana and the UFC, had a job to do and they dropped the ball. So Nope I don't blame Jones at all. I respect him more for not doing it, and I stand by that.

    You should really read Jones' statements, they'll make you sad

    He explicitly said he turned down the fight because he needed more time to prep, because he wants all his fights to be dominant. It had nothing to do with Sonnen according to Jones.

    What the fuck is going on? Every time I log off the site some crazy news breaks. I'm afraid to go to bed out of fear I'll wake up and find out Ronda Roussey is fighting Jones at 152.

    Thats not childish disdain. That is actually holding the UFC title to a high standard. So I will ask yet again. Was there ever talk about Sonnen fighting Jones in a non-title fight? Did this ever come up? How can I not get an answer on this? Do that many people actually think its more acceptable to give a guy a title shot just for being there?
