    Bad business = Dana and the UFC running to the media to create bad press, announcing things with no agreement, attempting to use public pressure to make him sign something on their terms.

    Guess the UFC didnt learn from 151 when they went out of their way to make Jones the scapegoat, public pressure does not work on Jones when it comes to business.

    I imagine he is either unhappy with the date, or unhappy that they would announce the fight in the middle of a contract renegotiation.

    I like that he hasn't signed yet I believe he will but Dana is being an asshole about it so fuck him let him sweat a bit.

    I will laugh at Dana's pain if Jones demands to fight DC first. I will salivate at that fight cause I'm pretty sure a motivated and pissed off Bones destroys Gus in 2 rounds. I don't know what will happen with DC though.

    Gus is next, but they are going through negotiations most likely on money and date. But than the UFC ran to the press. Jones usually fights in the Fall. Yet the UFC ran to the media about a August date.

    Would be pretty funny to me if he left the UFC as champ.

    What happened to Dana saying he has no problems where guys want to better their financial situation/life, etc. re: Rich Franklin, but for Jon Jones, no. For Greg Jackson, no. For Ronda, yes.

    He the champ of the world, he decides when he fights. The promotion tries to accommodate him and enlighten him as to when the best time is. Not ram it down his throat. At least, that is the way it is done in boxing.

    Contenders don't have a say, only champs do.

    Jones is a diva. The way he communicates only makes him look worse since he's responsible for the cancel of an entire ufc card and constantly delaying fights. It's really becoming a habit of his even though he sees it differently.

    I'm always on the side of fighters being paid more. I'm always against them trying to decide who and when they fight.

    Your little brain still cant even understand what went down with 151. After its been explained by many and most opening their eyes to the bullshit the UFC pulled. Stay out of this.
