    Jones is right. Cerrone has no idea what its like to be in Jon's shoes.

    Jones makes far more than that.The million is basic pay,add in untaxed bonuses,sponsorship etc and the total will be well over two.

    The cancellation was on the management of UFC, not one of it's fighters. If they have such shoddy business practices they have to cancel promotions due to loss of talent perhaps they need stronger leadership. Or they could simply fire Jones. He'll make another promotion and himself, quite rich. Oh! They won't fire him because they're only partially stupid, not fully.

    I get a feeling not a lot of Greg Jackson fighters like Jon Jones. Evans, Arlovski and now Cerrone.

    I don't want to be disrespectful but why do so many people claim to know what amount of money these fighters are going home with? I'd wager none of your answers are correct.

    Anyone ever notice that when Jones is inactive and there is no drama someone always resurrects the pass in an attempt to smear him again? It's quite pathetic.

    Jones also gets PPV points, he is easily making 7 figures a fight.

    Lombard gets 300k and PPV points, does anyone actually think Jones as LHW champ and the UFC's biggest up and coming star doesnt?

    Seems to me making a million dollars per fight is all the more reason to not withdraw.
