He's had the longest LHW champ reign of all time to do it. People just hate Jones.

The problem is more IMHO that they don't think anyone can beat him.

The UFC just did a very poor job of selling Gus, partly forced on them by his injury.

With the PPV cuts that the champs get, there's a definite chance that the UFC is not breaking even with many of these cards now. Hopefully the UFC switches to a non-PPV model - if they really want more people to watch the sport and have it go mainstream that is the way to go. Would definitely take a hurting for awhile while they grew the brand though.

Being well liked usually means nothing as their are well liked stars who dont do great PPV numbers. Jones does infinitely better numbers than Cain and Cain is one of the most well liked champions in the UFC as being well liked doesn't seem to get him great PPV numbers.

People hate mayweather but they still come out for mayweather, its about demographics and entertainment.
