    J: A story broke online Monday to the effect that Jones is telling you he wants to fight Daniel Cormier next and not Alexander Gustafsson (who last September gave Jones the toughest fight of his career in losing by unanimous decision). You

    So Cormier is next, got it. Whatever Dana says, the real answer is the exact opposite.

    Typical cry baby Dana interview slinging mud to try and sway braindead sheep onto his side.

    I think this comes down to a control issue. Dana wants to tell Jones who he's fighting and Jones is saying who he wants to fight. IMO DC will be tougher fight for Jones. Jones is a freak and the second Gus fight won't be close.

    Yeah, that was a really dumb thing for Cormier to say.

    It's not like Jones is calling out a bum to avoid Gus. He's calling out a legit challenger.

    Yah a challenge he said that didn't deserve a shot at him, a challenger who is injured. A challenger who Bones chewed out multiple times saying he isn't even a challenge.

    The only takeaway from this is that Dana continues to prefer to negotiate in public so that he can try to manipulate public opinion to apply negative pressure on the fighters he is supposed to be promoting. That and you can't believe a word that comes out of his mouth - but that is nothing new.

    maybe i am old school but like it or not, it's the fighter's job to fight who gets put in front of him by the promotion and not pick and choose or play the role of the matchmaker.

    what if the UFC picked CHael to fight Jones next? should Jones just fight him because the UFC said so or insist on fighting DC or GUS?

    Jones actually said in the same interview he didn't view DC or Hendo as very difficult challengers. Said Cormier was fat and slow and Hendo was old. Posting from mobile so no sauce. Google dat shyyt.

    I'm not a Dana fan by any means, but Jones needs to fight Gus. It will hurt his legacy if he ducks this fight.

    And pissed jones off...Gus had his chance and blew it. Cormier is a more exciting fight. Gus needs to take another fight then fight jones /Cormier winner and quit begging and saying Jones is wearing his belt. Gus is way more demanding than Jones and Jones is not taking the fight for that reason. The Champ should decide who he wants to fight not the Challenger.
