So why was DC still begging for the fight AFTER he beat Hendo then? DC has talked a lot of shit calling Jones out. Now he's like "ohh, Gus is first in line..." As for DC being hurt, everyone has issues. He's 35yrs old. If he had major ACL surgery he'd probably be history like Dom Cruz.

because anyone who fights in the ufc wants to fight for the belt lol, and yea hes getting his knee scooped to see if it needs surgery, either way he will need time to heal up before fighting for the belt, definitiely the smart move, like you said hes 35 he might only get one chance to fight for the belt why not do it at 100%?

You don't seem to grasp basic reading comprehension. I'll try to make it simple:

-TS can't figure out why Jones is calling out DC
-His reason is because DC needs surgery
-Truth is he hasn't seen the Doctor yet and we don't know that
-He insists anyways
-You come running in to take your shots at Jones and his fans without reading

Yeah, I get that but then if he KNEW about these health issues, why was he constantly running his mouth and practically begging Jones to give him the fight instead of Gus? The reports are saying he's had these issues for a long time, even in the lead up to fighting Hendo.

I find all this stuff to be pretty ridiculous to be honest. I think this deal is all about control. Jones has been pissed at the UFC since Dana threw him under the bus blaming him for that cancelled PPV when Hendo got hurt. Instead of the UFC fessing up to putting on a totally shit card, they blamed it on Jones for not fighting Chael on a week's notice. The UFC sheep blame Jones for that too. Then the same people turn around and bash him for later fights with supposed MW's, Sonnen and Vitor which the UFC put together.

All this manufactured drama is turning me off from the UFC. It's like watching professional wrestling drama.

no I can read, and I consider myself a fan of jones thanks tho
While DC doesn't know for 100% if he needs surgery, most fans, and jones himself knows DC has stated that it may be an option. So clearly jones knows the injury on his knee is bad enough that its going to take some time to get better
Not hard to figure out bud but thanks for trying

Man, I couldn't agree more with you there
Whoever he fights hopefully its sooner than later really, theres clearly interest for both fights, personally I would rather see the Gus fight first

How is that the same? Not very a very rational post.

GSP is injured with no ETA on return.

Sure it's not exactly the same, but it's a similar situation.


Calling out an injured fighter just doesn't make any sense no matter how long they may be out.
