Dana is being "a loud mouthed dick" as you put it because Jon Jones turning down the fight with Sonnen cost the UFC millions in revenue.Think if someone lost you or your business money, you would definitely be salty, and if you say you wouldn't be you are a shitty business person. Think logically about Dana's side of this.

That svcks that Dan won't fight, but Dana is being a total loud mouthed dick about this.Why should Jones accept Sonnen right away, when Machida is given six weeks? Why not put Sonnen and Jones on September 22?Dana is a just acting like a total bitch.

Hopefully...Saw soares said on twitter machida didnt even know and couldnt be reached. So he still has to accept. Plus the whole Jones getting into Canada with DUI issue...Surprised the announced it with it still being unofficial apparently

"I don't always fight low dollar fights, but when I do it's because I ducked Chael P Sonnen."
