I know I'm just restating what others have already said...
But I too am a bit baffled.
On the one hand, I can't say Jones is a "coward"... because WANTING to fight Cormier is NOT cowardly!
DC is legit and that is a TOUGH fight for Bones.
On the other hand though, why wouldn't he give Goose the rematch?
I mean... Bones MUST feel that it's a blemish on his "legacy"... surely he'd want to silence the critics and prove DEFINITIVELY that he's the champ.
(Scratching my head!)
The whole thing just seems strange and I am unsure what the endgame is...
Very strange. Looking forward to hearing how this plays out!
Either he fights or he's not champ look at cruz atleast he was injured. But I have a weird feeling this is all publicity make jones the heel create a interim title to boost the already high stakes of the rematch or if dc wins boost his stock going into the fight with jones so the ppv sales are higher.
It is a sad day for the sport when Pro wrestling antics are needed to put butts in the seats, and to create controversy to sale buys. These guys and gals are the best in the world at what they do and you should want to watch them for their pure talent. If you need a soap opera to be an MMA fan go back to watching the WWE.
On topic. Lets all wait in anticipation for the fight to be announced Thursday after this "meeting". Ppl freak the fuck out over anything Jones does - As we see with the post above, as well as the countless Jones threads. Funny how ppl can go from disagreeing with everything Dana says but whenever it slightly favors their opinion on a subject - especially a Jones one, they beleive every word he says.
Question, how many times have we herd Dana say this same shit about other fighters when booking a fight? It helps sell the fucking fight. Notice how Jones doesnt give a fuck? Why? Because all these fairweather fans who will buy the fight because of the hype around will actually believe the nonsense Dana sells them, and at the end of the day that = $$$$ for Jones.

So much drama for such an easy solution. they have a meeting scheduled with dana, jones, and lorenzo right? So here is how that goes. Meeting starts, contract is on the table, Jones signs it, or gives up his belt. Champion fights the challenger, or we get a new champion. No room for negotiation.
I mean really, can anyone see Cain pulling this kind of diva bs? what about aldo? Would chuck have done this? Can anyone name a non-anderson champ besides jones who pulls crap like this?
EDIT:http://www.mmamania.com/2013/9/15/47...-wants-ricardoJose Aldo doesn't believe Chad Mendes has earned rematch, wants Ricardo Lamas
Jose Aldo defended his Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Featherweight belt this summer when he finished Chan Sung Jung at UFC 163 in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil. It marked his fifth UFC title defense and cemented him as one of the top pound-for-pound fighters in the world.
MMA Fighting spoke with the featherweight champ to get his thoughts on the current featherweight landscape. Surprisingly, Aldo doesn't exactly seem all that excited about a possible rematch with Chad Mendes. He completely no-sells Mendes' winning streak, saying that he hasn't actually beaten anyone of note.
"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."

Jones isnt ducking anyone, he has fought a whos who at LHW and walked away the winner everytime(Hamill does not count, as he still walked away as Matt was laying on the canvas and the UFC moved along like he won. He is prob just chillin at home eating cereal on top of the bout papers just chuckling. His people are smart, they are taking care of him, making people talk, assume things etc etc
At the end of the day, Jones retains the title against DC or Gus.
