    Jones would love this. It will eliminate one of his two biggest challenges.

    Pretty cool, although I think Jones will sign. Only reason he would not is if he is seriously considering retirement or a jump to Bellator MMA.

    If Cormier/Gustafsson happens that's fine and we'll have a solid deserving contender afterwards but please fuck off with your "interim" title.

    No one gives an F about some make believe belt.

    There is no unification when someone is holding an interim title. You only unify different belts. I agree with you though, the fight would be sick. Especially if DC destroyed Gus, that would make me happy.

    Well the whole point of an interim belt is to have a champion in case your other champion cannot make a title defense in a reasonable manner.

    Happened to Tito when he refused to fight Chuck.

    Yes there is: to create a worthy title challenger.

    Skill wise both Guffy and DC are worthy, interesting and deserving challengers. But neither has beaten the kind of fighters in the weight class to position themselves as the indisputable #1 contender.

    It would certainly give him much more information on both fighters. At the same time, they'll always be a challenge for the title. These athletes are only getting better, and right now, Jon Jones is the bar for LHW. Everyone is gunning to surpass his skills.

    champ wont sign to fight number 1 contender who is the REAL champ anyhow


    I don't understand why he gets to pick his fights. With regards to the contract for the fight and negotiating as someone mentioned on page 1: He is UNDER contract already and if he wants to re negotiate every single time he fights that is tough shit. He already signed for a set amount for x number of fights plus ppv percentages.

    The SMART word is this is business as usual and everyone is making a molehill into a mountain and basically wasting time talking about a great big nothing.


    I will say if he doesn't fight Gus he should lose his title for refusing to defend it and Cormier and Gus should fight for the belt.

    Why the fuck should there be an interim belt? Just make Jones fight these two back to back. He's the champ, after all.

    Agreed I have a feeling that Cormeir, Gus, and Jones are all going to fight and rematch each other a few times. I think these 3 are the current 3 best LHW's were gonna see in quite a while.

    Kind of a Randy, Chuck, Tito scenario.....except better! lol
