LilBrockonmychest -  "Not only that, you became champion of the UFC through circumstances like this."

Would people quit fucking saying this.  Jon Jones was 12-0 going into the Bader fight (not counting the Hammil 'loss') and fighting a guy, Bader, who was 5-0 in the UFC.  Jones was 6-0 in the UFC in the LHW division and had DESTROYED all 6 opponents.  He had 100% earned his title shot.  Chael was 2-2 in his last 4 in the MIDDLEWEIGHT division and lost 2 of his last 3 in the LHW division, getting finished in both.  Oh, and that was 6-7 years ago. 

And why do people keep bringing up what you just brought up?

Jones didn't refuse to fight because Chael Sonnen hadn't "earned it".

Jones refused to fight PERIOD.

 Considering he said he would fight chael at 152 after a short training camp I think you got your facts mixed up there.

I'm talking about UFC 151, genius.

He didn't refuse the fight at 151 because Sonnen wasn't worthy (not that it's even his place or business to decide who is worthy or deserving of a shot-it's NOT-it's not his belt, it's the UFCs).

He refused to fight ANYONE else they would have come up with for UFC 151.

Didnt read the article, but I bet I can sum it up regardless: "I still hate Jones, he beat me and so I will take this opportunity to keep hating on him. Oh yeah, and fuck Greg Jackson!"

Warzone209 -  Yes I'm sure Blaf was pissed off he was Sponsoring a #3 P4P in the world Undisputed Champion...
I was unaware that Jones wore a shirt and hat that said "Dana White" on it. Any fighter that wears nothing but UFC gear isn't selling UFC gear to the uninitiated of the sport. Most people see it a a generic brand. Anyone you talk to that doesn't follow it like the UG sees MMA = UFC. Not the other way around. Phone Post

 JBJ was walking around with UFC apparel..That advertises more for the UFC to the casual fans which creates more revenue for Zuffa Inc which makes Dana's pockets fatter hard concept to understand?
That's just stupid. Why do sponsors pay fighters? Condom depot on shirts?
"Never heard of Condom Depot, I'll go online and check them out".
"What's Muscle Pharm? Dunno, let's look them up".
If you're already watching the UFC, there's no fucking need to advertise it on a shirt.
Pepsi sponsors the NFL because when you're watching a commercial dying the game, it makes you want a Pepsi. The NFL doesn't sponsor itself, because you're already watching the fucking NFL. You understand? It's basic marketing. Phone Post

 Look If some mother sees UFC sweater she will just be like whatever But if her son watches UFC and she sees a champion wearing it she's more likely to buy it because the kid will like it more because hey the champ wears it!!....mind blowing i know.

No. Never. That's really creepy gay. Noticing what guys wear outside the octagon? Are you into guy's feet or something?

I don't like Rashad from the time he's promoting a fight until the post-fight press conference is over. Outside that period of time he is a class act and a great guy.

An in-shape Jon Jones destroys Sonnen - even if Chael had a full training camp. I can somewhat understand the inclination to want to have more time to gameplan against an opponent, but what does Chael do that much better than Hendo - or Evans? Not much, if anything I'd say. The only real difference is he fights southpaw, but I don't think Sonnen is fast enough, powerful enough - or in good enough shape to make a difference. Eight days [seems] like enough time to gameplan for Sonnen, to me (given his few fight camps). Phone Post

MPA2000 - Hey Rashad, you were only Champ for fifteen minutes before "pillowfists" KO'd that ass.

The only that saved you from being choked out by Jones, was because you were a better runner than Jones.

And yet them 15 minutes of his life is more than you will ever accomplish in your entire lifetime.

Rashad just Sonned Jones, too bad they didn't remain friends Rashad would have been a good role model for him.
