i heard this got moved from 170 to 171 because Jones didnt want to be in camp during holidays...
Planning on making the drive to Dallas though for this one!
I still say that the guy deserved a break and folks should chill out on the criticism for the delay. He's fought at least twice a year regardless of injury and nearly every one of those has been against a HOF'er or former champ.
And the piano, it sounds like a carnival
And the microphone smells like a beer
If anything his longer layoffs, while taping TUF, or even this one (which aren't really long compared to other champions), has been a blessing in disguise as it allowed time for new contenders to grow. If Jones just kept fighting every 4 months like he did at the start and he plowed through everyone, he really wouldn't have any viable challengers left. Now we have 3 potentially competitive fights to look forward to: Glover, Gustafsson rematch and Cormier. Phil Davis nor a rematch with Rashad intrigues me though but others may differ.
