Maybe it was changed.
I think it was Rashad.

They don't like Jones either. So?

It's been that way forever.

That's why when I heard Bones say he has been given one UFC belt it was quite surprising. So, i though I would ask if anyone else had heard of this.

I know GSP was still receiving a new gold belt after each title fight. So, obviously it wasn't even a uniform rule by the UFC across all champions.

I wish Ariel or one of the MMA reporters would ask about during one of the scrums.

they should do it like in boxing, but instead putting faces of all pervious champs, they should put faces of all ppl the champ beat on the belt

Here is the problem,.. you are all basing this on what Jon Jones said in an interview with a comedy based talk show.

As far as I know,.. the champs get a new belt each time.

This is even true in the smaller orgs, even among the amateur ranks.

Lol, not sure, but they probably won't be bringing in the usual huge name acts like in years past. This person is incredibly upset about the bonuses though, they have already informed them no Christmas $ this year.

What idiot "in-the-know executive" would tell their employees in August that no bonuses will be given out?

I find it hard to believe.
