The whole Jones won't sign the contract situation was orchestrated.

    Jones, Gus, DC, Dana, and the UFC are all on the same page. I was already looking forward to Jones VS Gus II. But this entire situation had everyone talking and generated more interest for this fight and the LHW division as a whole. We already know that haters pay the most, look at Floyd Mayweather. I think the UFC/Jones are trying to tap into this. The LHW division is becoming thee most popular division again.

    No it wasn't.

    I bet you also think the UFC told Wandy and Sonnen to fake fight.

    you're looking far too much into it. Jones did this, because he wanted to attend his brothers wedding. The UFC/Dana/Gus had nothing to do with it.

    Don't believe that.

    First I heard about a wedding. But my thinking was, what was Jon trying to gain out of this. If he did gain something, that'd be a valid reason to why he held out. But if he gained nothing from his position, then I think it was nothing more than theatre.

    So you're saying JJ tried to avoid fighting Gus and asked for Cormier because of his brothers wedding? Sure thing buddy.

    Jones' brother's wedding has inadvertently provided his most fervent haters with yet another irrational reason to hate on him.

    His brother is getting married in July. He wanted to go to the wedding, then have time for a training camp after. That's his claim at least.

    It still blows my mind that there are people out there that think the Wand/Sonnen TUF fight was fake.

    I realize we're all a little jaded in the post-reality tv/youtube prank video world we live in but come on..how can you not see something real when you see it?

    I think people are now so scared of being tricked that they'll call "fake" on something that even they think might be real just so they can say that nobody "got" them. People are terrified of being fooled and being called out for being fooled so they'll just run around pre-emptive striking by saying "fake, fake, fake" so you can never claim they were fooled.

    but they look like bigger idiots than the ones that do get tricked by fake videos when they swear that something is fake that isn't... that's also getting "got" and fooled..just in a different way

    Or maybe he knew the longer he negotiated, and campaigned for different fights it would push things back to the point where dates wouldn't work and they would have to move the fight to a different card that would allow him to attend the wedding?! NO WAI!

    Jones would probably ask one of her daughters to marry any random guy in September to postpone the Gus fight again were said daughter old enough to get married.
