    Imagine Jones in BFC, WSOF, or even ONEFC.

    Supposedly Dana answers a phone call from Nick Diaz while at the table then the scene cuts.

    You don't hear the phone ring or hear Dana and Nick talk.

    Not sure what's up with the "ducking" accusations. At first, I thought it was Dana trying to use public pressure to force Jones into signing a bad deal. Now, with Gus talking, I'm starting to think they might be trolling to create hype for the rematch.

    He will, but that fight is his leverage, so while renegotiating he should do just what he's doing. This isn't Jones, this is his management telling him the best way to negotiate.

    This is how he supports his family, he's never ducked anyone, he's already beaten Gus, so he deserves the benefit of the doubt imo.

    this. UFC basically always does new deals with guys while they still have fights left on their old one, usually its before their last fight.

    Sometimes if that fighter is the champ they will give him a new higher deal like with cain, maybe Barao and Mighty Mouse also got new deals with fights left on their old one.

    This could be saying to Jones we will redo your deal and give you more if you accept the Gus fight. Cause Jones doesnt seem to want that fight and the UFC really does so to get him to accept it and make everything easy they could giev him a new deal. But they dont have to.

    Yea DW has been talking a lot about Jones lately. I'm starting to think it's all promotion for the fight. I think even Jones might be on this he's been way to quite about it.

    I think so, too. In the latest video where Jones responded to his "haters," it seemed as if he was making a joke out of this whole thing and didn't appear to take it very seriously. We all might got trolled by Jones, Dana White, and Gus and their attempt to hype up this rematch.

    In boxing, the sanctioning body/organization whatever decides who the #1 contender is.

    Here that would be the UFC. So the #1 contender is whoever the ufc says in the #1 contender, and if you don't fight the #1 contender you lose your belt. They strip people all the time in boxing because they won't fight the #1 contender.
