Cerrone: Jones should have fought, but I don't make $1M

source: mmajunkie.com
 

The interesting part about Cerrone's stance? He and Jones are teammates at the Jackson-Winkeljohn camp in Albuquerque, N.M. – and he definitely isn't playing favorites just because they share a gym and a coaching staff.

"Yes, I'd have fought," Cerrone said this past Friday at a question-and-answer session for fans prior to the weigh-ins for UFC 155 in Las Vegas. "They could call me tomorrow and ask me to fight. I think you need to fight. That's our job. I don't think you should curl up and find a way out. So yes, that's my answer."

Cerrone said the subject of Jones passing on the Sonnen fight the first time has been broached between the two.

"He's my teammate, and we have this discussion all the time," Cerrone said. "I said, 'You should've done it.' And he goes, 'Well, you don't make a million (dollars) to fight.' And I said, 'Well, you're right, but I f---ing fight every time with all my heart.'"

Jones might be an amazing fighter technically and physically but he will NEVER be my favorite fighter and don't really care whatever happens to him. He has shown many sides of him and always seem like a douche by the things he say or his behavior. I don't ever want to hangout with a guy like him in real life. No question he's the best in the division but I can't wait for someone to show up and humble his ass.

If your too stupid to understand the below and you are, I can't help you. If you're not a hugger you're just more stupid."HTF could anyone know that a fighter that never beat any top LHW at all could get the fight under normal means (after 151)? It had NOTHING to do with $$ (tucking Sonnen) and no one with half a brain ever said so either! What scenario other then the want for TUF ratings could even lead to the fight? "

How can you be so simple as to not realize that he's still getting the easiest payday of his life against Sonnen, and now it will also be a larger payday? And really dude, Derp is older than you are judging by your use of it. I'm done replying to you, but thanks for calling me a JBJ nuthugger LOLJust shows how you don't even read people's posts. You skim thru them looking for something to go DERP about like that makes you a kewl kid

Is that simple enough for you? I can't make it more simple it is what it is.JBJ was poorly advised. He could have had the easiest payday of his life against an opponent who did not train and did not ever even ever win a good fight at LHW either. Instead he chose to tuck.

I'm not the one with JBJ's balls in my mouth saying it's the same that JBJ did not take the fight with a full camp as it is Machida or shogun not to have taken the fight WITHOUT one. DERP! TWIT!HTF could anyone know that a fighter that never beat any top LHW at all could get the fight under normal means (after 151)? It had NOTHING to do with $$ (ticking Sonnen) and no one with half a brain ever said so either! What scenario other then the want for TUF ratings could even lead to the fight? The only way to know there would be more $$ on the table was being able to see that "They'd need him and Sonnen for TUF and Sonnen would not fight before April. Sure why should't he know that! He also knew that Bones would injured and not be able to fight Hendo in Feb (super bowl weekend) which would lead to the April fight and TUF opening too!"Derp, Twit!

Oh and if your replies are going to be this nonsensical, consider this discussion between us to be done. DERP (real original btw)
