    Lot of people here saying Jones is holding out for more money or all out ducking Gus.

    Am I the only one here who thinks the holdup may be the location? It's no secret that Dana and Co want the rematch on Sweden, and I could see Jones refusing that condition and think it would be a valid reason.

    Dana said that Sweden is off the table. They want to do it in Vegas.

    Jones is probably asking for more money and Dana is using his typical strong arm tactics hoping that Jones will fold to the fan and media pressure for a Gus rematch and sign as quickly as possible. I hope Jones holds out on him for a long time until he gets what he wants.

    Jones is currently under contract and should be defending the belt against whomever the boss puts in front of him.

    I bet it is posturing on both sides, and a deal will get done.

    Did not hear this. Thank you. I thought this was maybe what he was angling for. Mods, go ahead and delete thread then

    Dana doesn't seriously want to do it in Sweden, he's just trying to woo the European market by making them feel like they aren't just his side piece. "Yeah, we're really torn...Sweden/Europe, where no one buys PPVs and the time zone is way ahead of the US/Brazil, or Vegas, fight capital."

    Jones/Gustafsson 2 will be a reasonably interesting PPV to fans, so they're not going to have it in a place that has a GMT+2:00 time zone. As long as Europeans are a small market and don't buy PPVs, they aren't getting somewhat lucrative fights like this one.

    Are you implying Jones' is an impostor? Can you imagine if that belt isn't even real?




    Shit.
