Hopefully Jones continues to drive this piece of shit crazy by looking out for himself before anybody else.

I'll still be rooting for Gus in the rematch because I like him more, but may the better man win.
You used a pretty blue font.

Nice touch.

Jones did the right thing. Got more money when you can. Fans got the fight they wanted on the same schedule any one with a brain knew they would.

So I fail to see how the UFC is being unreasonable and "bullying" him is just stupid.
I don't care if your famous or not, you have a boss, they're going to try and tell you what to do. Welcome to the rest of the world
Jones just showed Dana how much power he has. Therefore, Dana is less of a boss of him than he is to other fighters.

I wished for a big fight in Sweden, but if I was Jones, I'd demand much more money than UFC would be willing to pay.

Gaining more respect for himself and I say that as a Shogun fan who is still feeling that loss.

But JBJ is doing things the right way as far as I can tell.
