Why should Jones fight someone in his own back yard. He is the champion, people should come to him or the fight should be held in neutral territory. Of all the places in the world to hold the fight, why should it be on the challenger's turf?

Read up on what Chael says about Bas and you get the real picture on who is considered a jackass. Read up on who likes to open their mouth and say snide things about fighters they dont have too and are not in competition with. Who likes to insult and make petty statements about Overeem over a business matter because he is buddies with a certain promoter.

Get out here with that rubbish.

Sonnen said some tongue in cheek stuff about Bas nearly 10 years ago for a Bodog fight interview. Unless you were born yesterday you should be aware Sonnen says the most bombastic things in the sport.

Back on planet earth, Bas is universally respected. This is not disputable.

Regarding Overeem - some people are not comfortable with unfiltered truth. Bas explained pretty respectfully why he thought it was wrong for Reem to cut ties with his business partners at Golden Glory as soon as money came in. It resulted in a bunch of lawsuits.

Overeem then relocates to Xtreme Couture, then jumps ship for the Blackzillians, and now again to Jackson's. He's also switched management companies with each hop.

So you have a guy that can't seem to fit in anywhere and changes management companies like days of the week - after settling out of court with the guys who brought him up.

Doesn't really make Bas look like a crazy person.

To quote Chael, "Bas is a legend? In what?"

Yea and I'm sure the ufc would just say yes. They clearly are so willing to give fighters money. They just tried to bully Jones into this fight using the fans without negotiating first.

If his kids are well taken care of now then he needs to start thinking about his nieces and nephews. At the end of the day who the hell gives up money come on man that's just stupid. For all he knows his next fight could be his last you never know what's going to happen in the cafe. One eye poke and he could be done forever.

jones has become a prima dona. he's the champ, i guess he can call the shots.

I miss the old days of pride - people didn't know who they were fighting until the night before sometimes!!!
