Jones claims 'Nogueira' was booked to give 'Mauler' easy fight while protecting UFC 165 rematch
*Maybe Jones doesnt realize Lil Nog is ranked #5?Jones elaborates to MMA Fighting:
"I wanna see [Gustafsson] fight a top contender. Seems like these guys are not really having the toughest time to get to the belt. Teixeira goes from Bader to a championship fight. Gustafsson went from Shogun to a championship fight. I feel like they save all the dogs for me and they just give the toughest guys the easiest match-ups to get to a title shot. Let's see some of these top contenders fight each other."
When news broke that Gustafsson would be fighting Nogueira:
"I was like 'Really? You want him to have the rematch that bad?' No disrespect to Nogueira, but let's see Gustafsson versus Cormier. It makes so much sense. Me, Cormier, Gustafsson and Teixeira, the top four guys in the division. Let's put us all in a little round-robin pool and see who is the toughest out of us four. Why throw Little Nog into the picture? But whatever, I'm gonna fight the toughest one anyway."
** Didnt Jones ask for the Glover fight next, now he is complianing about Glover getting shot off beating Bader?
*** If Jones is going to stick around at LHW he is going to have to fight Cormier eventually and have the Goose rematch so why complain about it.
