I love that all the bum fighters are coming out trying to step in hoping for a interim title shot

Just let him fight so Rampage could knock him into a one year lay off.

SIX PARTS.

For a title contender.

Unreal.

I'd rather watch a series on how Aldo come up.

Is Gus injury-free and medically cleared? Would like to see how a rematch with him and johnson would go.

Both Gus and DC have matches set for them in June, they are probably both ready

What did they say?
post #8769 of 34015
They both said he should be stripped and pulled from 187.

Rashad said he needs to step away from the sport for a while to re-evaluate before he completely ruins his legacy.

I dunno about stripping the belt.
post #8771 of 34015
Even with all this drama dude will still probably walk in that cage and beat Rumble down.
post #8772 of 34015
I still can't get over the fact that this dude literally ran from the scene and then came sprinting back to grab some money.

Kevin Lole was on KNBR (Bay Area sports station), and he was talking about knowing Jones before he got the title. He was on the rise, but Jones actually called him and asked him to come interview him in a Vegas malls food court.
He's pretty much saying what a lot have, he thinks the fame has just been a little too much for him. After their interview, Jones called him because he wanted to make sure that he didn't come off the sounding the wrong way in their interview. Doesn't think that he should be stripped, but he does think that the fight is off and it should be for an interim belt. Jones needs more than a day and really needs help to straighten his life out.

Daaaaaaaamn.

Not even mad. That's official? Is it still on the same card?

Still a good scrap.

You assume Cormier will dominate with wrestling but many thought the same when Rumble fought Davis.

He's fought at HW so not sure Cormier strength will overwhelm him either.

And Cormier is incredibly durable on his feet. Proved it vs. Jones and even Barnett if memory serves.
post #8779 of 34015
Wonder how long the suspension is for.

Glad DC is getting another shot, always been a fan of dude.

Suspension is indefinite.

So if we use his rehab stint as a gauge....

I'd say 6 months so they can line him up to fight who ever wins at 187 laugh.gif

post #8783 of 34015
This entire ordeal may at first seem like it makes the UFC look bad, but in opinion, this is a perfect business opportunity for the UFC.

We cannot forget, this isn't martial arts in a dojo style tournament, this is entertainment now above anything else.

Fans are emotionally involved in this situation. Any time you have fans emotionally involved, you have them hook line and sinker.

People will either say feel two types of ways right now; happy to see Jon get what he deserves; sorrow for Jon Jones losing his belt.

This sets up the perfect come back story. For UFC's biggest star to reboot his image and come back even stronger to reclaim his belt.

Imagine that headline for the first ever UFC event @ Madison Square Garden.

We all know UFC shouldn't be policing what will eventually turn out to be a settlement reached out of court or a misdemeanor charge at the most.

To me it's the perfect scenario for them to take advantage of.

Just from a business perspective.

Anybody feel me? haha.

Have no issue with a dude who fights other assassins in a cage for money getting high, but dude should be smarter.

"Got a lot of soul searching to do, sorry to everyone I let down" -Jon Jones

 

Yo, this was the perfect week for UFC Tonight on Fox Sports 1 to randomly be on 5 days this week, Monday through Friday. Pretty interesting coincidence (they planned to do this since at least last Wednesday)

Exactly, they can miss me with all this moral high road **** when so many fighters get caught taking drugs to get an advantage.


Jones is a **** up for sure yes but he's still without a doubt the best fighter in the entire organization.

UFC reminds me of the NFL with the fake morals, get the **** outta here man, it's all about money.


As soon as Jones is off suspension, he'll wash whoever has the the belt and be champion again, this is stupid.


I can't legitimately feel like whoever wins the next fight is champion because I know they wouldn't beat Jones. I don't give a **** that he likes to powder his nose and smoke trees, he beat DC while he still had blow in his system, I'd rather still see him in the octagon.
post #8788 of 34015
Sucks for Jones financially since a mid-7 figure payday has vanished before his very eyes and from a legacy standpoint he'll never beat Anderson's record of 10 title defences. And I don't feel the least bit bad for him. He's a flat out moron and the worst part of this is he still wont learn his lesson.

I have issues with it if he's getting drunk or high and driving around. Lucky no one has died in any of the accidents.
post #8790 of 34015
Yea, um, there's a big difference between being a "recreational" drug user and being charged w/ a felony.

It's also not a given that dude would wash Anthony Johnson.
