    Fight will happen in Sept., not Aug.

    You can take that to the bank.

    He's gonna accept the fight sooner or later, whether he likes it or not.

    He'll accept the fight. I'm sure he really doesn't want to go through hell again to get that W, but there really is no one else. It's either Gus or Cormier and most likely neither guy is going to be his usual cakewalk. He's probably just figuring out the timing and some lame ass mind game he thinks he plays with people.

    I highly doubt that the nr1 P4P fighter in the world would chicken out from a rematch.

    More likely his management is just trying to milk more money from his next multi-fight contract.

    Why would they target it for Vegas when they're going to Sweden a month later? Makes no sense.

    They are in contract negotiations right now. If anything, Jones is in a better position due to the UFC announcing Gus has signed on for August 30th.

    Jones will be the highest paid fighter in the UFC once his new deal is done. He'll sign for the fight.

    Lorenzo mentioned that it would have to go on a 4am and the logistics of a stadium show that early could be a nightmare with places not being open.

    I think Bones learned from the first fight and i don't see him struggling again this time. Fight will still happen.

    Jones should turn the fight down to fight DC Gus already lost and hasnt done anything to earn a rematch. DC is the true #1 LHW contender.

    Yep, Bones looks to be ducking Gus. He knows Gus will whoop his @ss yet again (judges were wrong the first time).
