    Jones has a full training camp and his opponent gets injured - UFC offers him Chael Sonnen. Jones refuses the fight even though it woulda saved the card.

    DC has a full training camp and his opponent gets injured - "UFC find me a fighter to fight, I'll fight anyone just give me a fight! Chael where you at, lets fight!!??"

    Well Jones is champion, which means he has more to lose... but at the same time, Jon Jones vs Chael Sonnen is a HUGE mismatch.

    Jones is a champ, he isn't trying to prove himself or earn a shot.

    Big difference.

    DC had a lot to lose being it was his first fight at LHW and hes trying to be seen as a contender at 35 yrs old.

    DC needed to fight to stay relevant, Jones didn't.

    No DC could have just asked for a later fight and stayed relevant.
