Icon1 Phil Davis rips Jones' "matchmaking" efforts

Didn't see this posted yet...

"Why not get him a job? Throw him on payroll. See what he can really do with the lightweights. He seems to matchmake so well. I don't know. I feel bad for [Jones], but he put himself into an interesting predicament. 'Why not just have a light heavyweight tournament and have the winner fight Jon Jones?' That's pretty much what he's saying. 'You guys should have a tournament.' Call it 'The Ultimate Jon Jones Fighting Championship.'

Phil Davis rips UFC champ Jon Jones' matchmaking efforts

The bolded part is funny and it only underlines how ridiculous Jones has been lately with both attempts at matchmaking with Alexander Gustafsson and Daniel Cormier. He even laughs hard when the interviewer for Sports Net Canada reveals that Dana said that Jones sounds scared (of Phil's teammate, Gustafsson) to Joe Silva (the UFC's actual matchmaker).

I don't know how you can be champ and still come off like a coward but he figured it out.

Part of the same article.

Anyway did Davis mention wanting to fight or pushing for a fight with any of the guys that are in front of him? as is DC. Talking is not going to work here Phil, Gus and DC are ahead of you. Gus is locked in to be next, so either fight DC or wait till late 2015.

I can understand Jones' pov, he wants them to have tougher fights before they fight him but a lot of people already dislike dude, him acting like a matchmaker isn't helping.

I never want to see Jones and Davis fight.

The amount of times "explosive" will get used will make my head explode.

I don't know if a guy who's recently fought Wagner Prado and Vinny Mags is the right guy to skewer the champ, but he seems to have a good plan with this trash talk thing.

Phil seems like a super cool dude. I'm no Jones hater at all but when he brought up the idea of Gus and Cormier fighting each other a few weeks ago that was just weak. He definitely does have the toughest road ahead of him out of any champ though.
