Not only has this screwed over all the fans that bought tickets, non refundable airfare, took off work, made arrangements, etc... but think of all the fighters. Fighters that put in full camps, flew people in that helped them trains, etc. By the time I am actually fight, I spend close to 20k between corners, flights, expenses, coaches, etc... and then to have the whole show cancelled because ONE guy didn't want to fight. This ONE guy that had trained an entire camp, who was the CHAMP and at the top of his weight class,  who was going to fight someone who didn't do the camp, and was fighting UP a weight class. 

I have always been a big Jon Jones supporter... but I would be FURIOUS if this happenned to me and I was on the card. To call is scorched earth wouldn't do it justice.

 Thanks for the input Joe. I have a lot of respect for Chael for stepping up. Jon is beyond ridiculous for this B.S.

 I cannot balme Jon Jones and nither should anyone else.

Why would he risk everything he has worked hard for to let someone who DOESN'T DESERVE A TITLE SHOT at any wiehgt class get one?

Dana/UFC is 100% responsible for this debacle, as they are the ones setting up PPV cards to only have ONE FIGHT that people would pay to see. THEY should be paying everyone's show money contractually.

Why can't they just make stann vs bisping main event and call it a day?

Ask a couple guys to step in and make another undercard fight Phone Post
