    dang, dana is trying to kill stipe. 3 fights with dc, 2 with francis with a potential for a 3rd.

    Dana White Privilege or Dana White Guilt?

    Did something happen to Jon or is this more negotiation posturing.

    If Jones is bitching out, it kinda makes sense

    I read it as just another subliminal negotiation-strong arm tactic against Jon Jones. Jones can't just wait for the belt to be served for him, he has been so inactive at this point he needs to fight again to prove himself worthy of a hw title shot after pricing himself out in the unsuccessful negotiations with Dana the tyrant.

    Not totally buying it unless they’re serious about not paying jones and jones is serious about getting paid.

    Sure they’re trying to scare Jonny, but they really make this fight if jones stands firm

    ???

    You are falling for these Dana White tactics of shaming a fighter to get under paid?

    You realize the UFC pays their athletes the lowest amount of profits of any major sports organization right?

    I don't see Stipe winning this. Francis is getting better, Stipe is old and the damage is going to add up. Another brutal KO for Francis imo.

    I'd prefer if the winner of Gane Vs Volkov got the next shot.

    Not really and I like Stipe. Waited without fighting for the DC rematch and now Francis? He got destroyed. It's not like Stipe was on a 10 fight winning streak before that. Let him win one fight at least.
    Jon should fight Francis if Francis wins. That's the fight people want to see.

    I agree. Then, if he lose again he should stay on the sideline for one year and waiting for another rematch.

    You sound pretty sure Lewis has no chance against francis.

    Francis is a beast and has come a long way, but Lewis is a hell of a match up

    Makes sense. War stipe time to recapture that belt then retire after he would have nothing else to prove

    Stipe is 38 and wants the fight. What are you going to do with him? Kill off contenders?

    Whatever the number is,

    that appears to be it for the UFC..

    So Jones will have to make a decision relatively soon.. Take it or retire pretty much..
