    It just seems very routine at this point that every one of Jones' fight needs some kinda drama involved before, during, after. A lot of it is instigated by both sides (the other being Dana and or UFC).


    A lot of fans aren't into the smaller weight classes but I just found it refreshing that we just had a recent title match between 2 fighters where there was not even an ounce of drama or pre-fight smack talk involved. Guys showed mutual respect to each other and the skills they were gonna bring to the cage, and laid it all out for the fans.

    Sucks we won't see stuff like that on an occasional basis.
    I think the drama in the lower classes has a lot more to do with the media coverage of them which is pretty minimal. In the weeks leading up to the title fight how many articles were written about DJ or his opponent... next to none.

    Put guys in a the media spotlight the chances for drama and stupid stuff being said increases greatly.

    It's the type of shit I now have come to expect to hear from Jones at this point. Sort of like yesterday's news.......

    When Dana fucked up and tried to put the blame on Jon? I remember that.

    Dana didn't injure Hendo so I don't see how it was Dana's fault. If anything it was Dan's fault for hiding the injury for so long.

    I think you could divvy out the blame to Hendo, White, and Jones.

    Yeah I agree but since Dan is by far the most well liked of the three people tend to not bring him up when discussing the infamous card that never was.

    I just find it funny when one of the "favorites" finally feels that all-so-familiar sting of dealing with the UFC when they're not getting what they want.

    For the record, I actually side with the UFC on this matter but they strong-arm the shit out of people.
