Jones has not accepted Gus rematch yet, but offer is out there, per Lorenzo Fertitta. Gus verbally agreed today.
Nooooooooooo why not in Stockholm?
(I know why)
Jones won't accept it, he's scared IMO. Gus is king.
Good. Cowboy up and sign the contract, Jonesy.
I could see him wanting it at a later date than August 30th but hopefully he accepts.
So when the hell is Hendricks supposed to fight? I wonder if they'll make this card a double championship fight card.
If not the only place he could defend would be Canada. Which would kind of be bs to have him fight there, especially if it's against Rory.
Come on chicken bones, let's go.
The Embedded series talking about having to convince his manager why this fight makes sense and saying his manager hopes he can get a deal done sounds like Jones could be a problem.
HOpefully its not a problem and Jones takes the fight.
So if the Dan v. Dan winner is after that this means the they'll be on the shelf for quite a while if there's any significant injury to the winner.
That's relatively quick. I was thinking they might hold it back to October/November.
I could Jones/Gus winner vs. DC/Hendo winner happening Superbowl weekend 2015.
Was hoping they brought it back to Toronto. Oh well, Jones sign it .
Jones waiting for a possible Hendo win here :icon_lol:
Jones has yet to fight in Vegas as champ. We know what happened last time he was scheduled for a fight in Vegas....
LMAO let's go!
