    Referring to Jon Jones here.

    Gus had his chance and blew it, let DC have his first chance at the title. Why should Gus get 2 cracks at the title before DC even gets one?

    Gus is the big money fight, DC is injured. Why should he give a rematch? Because he holds the promotions title, and they need it for marketing, and they want him to. If there was a tournament format, Jones could rest on his laurels as long as he wanted and champs could be crowned without him.

    I'm a Jones fan it could be seen as Jones has already defeated Gus and wants a new challenge in Cormier.

    But he should fight Gus first to shut everyone up.

    Jones has 5 more fights on his contract. Gus will get another shot at losing to Jonny Bones.

    It's obvious Jones wants no second serving of The Mauler.
    Jones has reached his peak & fears that if Gus does the same 2nd time round, he'll lose the belt!
    Spinning shit won't same Bones this time.
    War The Mauler!

    Gus did not blow it, the decision was somewhat controversial, damage done did not reflect the final outcome

    Fourth round was given to bones on the basis of one flashy elbow, Gus outstruck Jones with significant strikes to the head 66-55 and to the body 33-29, takedowns were 1-1, with Gus defending another 10, Jones won on very light leg kicks and that alone should warrant a rematch.

    Conclusion: Jones is ducking

    Furthermore, you state that "Wanting to fight a particular fighter doesn't mean you're ducking other ones", I don

    Because he beat him into the hospital and should have gotten the decision the first time anyway. If a fight is that controversial, it deserves an instant rematch, much like Shogun vs. Machida.

    You could have said it when Jones preferred to fight Teixeira instead of Gus. But now he tries to avoid Gus again. Two in a row makes it ducking.

    Ducking: "Leaving early or hiding, sometimes in order to avoid a certain person or a group of people."
