    Yes...but you've still doubled the amount of time that is considered a long camp for a professional fighter.

    Even at three fights a year, that still leaves just under two-thirds of the year as downtime.

    Exactly. He said he should get a longer lay off because he needs time to spend time with his family because he does not have time to do so during these phantom 12-14 week camps.

    well are you fucking all of your friends that are girls?

    And you did say that he shouldn't have to fight so he could spend time with his family. I don't see how you can deny that when it is written in plain text.
    Where did i say JONES himself shouldnt have to fight so he could spend time with his family. Where is it written in plain text?

    thats a long shot at best. 12 months in a year so you want a guy to go through a 3 month camp fight - take a week off - then jump back into a 3 month camp? Not to mention damage from fight to fight. Thats not realistic imo.

    because they have a family, kids, a life outside of fighting. I get being champion comes with having little time for those things - but we cant expect a guy to do this year after year. I saw something say that Robbie Lawler hasnt seen his wife and kids in something like 14 weeks. Thats fucking crazy.
    ^ That is the Plain text you are referring to, correct?

    I was referencing the fact that you literally defend every single moronic thing he does regardless of what it is. I wasn't comparing his DUI to murder although it could've very well resulted in it. I also don't even believe Dana, I actually have said more than once in this thread that I think he is making it all up. I'm just baffled at the excuses you make for Jones.
    or is it that i dont flip the fuck out over every little thing Jones says - like the majority of you do?

    Everywhere ive read / herd training camps are 8-12 weeks depending on type of fight (3 round or 5 round). Where is this time frame thats set in stone that says thats a "long camp for a professional fighter"

    The only first hand knowledge i have is from some of my local friends who fight professionally and they usually put in 8 week camps.

    In response to being asked why does he need to wait you said "because they have a family, kids, a life outside of fighting. I get being champion comes with having little time for those things - but we cant expect a guy to do this year after year. I saw something say that Robbie Lawler hasnt seen his wife and kids in something like 14 weeks. Thats fucking crazy. "

    Well this makes me feel like a dick for bashing Dana and defending Jones...

    http://i.instagram.com/p/oy3bH8rHG2/#

    Jones admitted it.

    Donosaur says he would like to see the belt (UFC BELTS i.e BW, FW, LW, WW, MM, LHW, HW etc.) defended 3 times a year. I said it was unrealistic. He said "If a guy wins in dominant fashion, why does he need that long?" Which i responded with the red above. At no point was Jones names said during this, actually Robbie Lawler is the only name i said the entire time... I dont get how this is so hard for you to grasp?

    EDIT:

    LOL that instagram video made me laugh. Hes got you guys Hook. Line. and Sinker.
