Jon Jones On Ducking Gustafsson: ‘It’s My Career, Not Yours’
Jones has since deleted the video from Instagram — why, I don’t know. If you’re going to be “honest” or your playing the “heel” or whatever, go with it. You put it out there, stick with it. But he does have a point, right? It is his career. It’s just not what we’re used to seeing from UFC champions. Whatever happened to “taking on all-comers” and “it’s up to the UFC to decide who they want me to fight next”? Is this a good thing, that champions are able to negotiate and decide who they want to fight next? I think it is. It puts the power back in the fighter’s hands so they aren’t dictated by the corporate machine. This I like. Who wouldn’t want to see Jones vs. Gustafsson 2? And hopefully it will happen at some point, but Cormier vs. Jones is also an intriguing match-up and Cormier has been clamoring for this fight for some time.
Cormier has also said that he’d be willing to fight Gustafsson next if Jones won’t do it, and fight fans like that. They like a guy who will fight anyone, anywhere, anytime.
What say you? Is Jones ducking Gustafsson, or just making the right move for his career?
What? You are not? Or at least not trying too?
So much to learn young grasshopper.
I guess I was right, Jon's nuts must be pushing on your temporal lobe causing your brain to forget visual memories. I kid, but for real ... A question for Bones - Whether or not you believe this is what is going on - so if you were to take the Jones video at face value... Does DC deserve a title shot? IF Jones is avoiding Goose, do you think it is justified and if so, who should his next opponent be?
What a class act. I sure hope Jones is trolling and going full heel cuz if not, I dont even know what to say about the guy. Can you come off as anymore unlikable?
A few months ago, according to Jones, DC didnt even deserve a sniff at the belt. But now that DC's knee is jacked up, all of a sudden Jones feels he is worth of a fight...
Finally, how about the fact Jon keeps making these posts which show his real personality and then consistently feels the need to delete them. Man up, if you have the balls to post it - stand behind it and not delete it minutes later.

And if you want beef, then bring the ruckus
Leben 'em dead and maimed
Man Im sorry but I totally agree with Jones. He cant be ducking someone when he is asking for the harder opponent. DC has proven his worth at LHW after destroying one time #1 contender and legend Hendo. So if people are upset at Jones for that, he can never win you over and he knows this, hence his constant trolling.
Lastly, I respect Goose and believe he will get a title shot again. But can someone, anyone point to a time where a #1 contender lost a title fight, fought a guy OUTSIDE the top 10 ranking of that division and then was warranted another title shot again right away? That would be great....
