    This forum has been filled with outrage over fighter pay and constant reference to how boxers take more of a cut of revenue from events the MMArtist.

    Calls for unions and more disclosure etc

    Now we have Jones not signing his contract which in all probability he is trying to get what he feels and most hardcore mma fans feel is a fair remuneration for his position.

    It's a step not only in the right direction but what many hear have been up in arms for and instead of support he gets shat on.
    Accused if ducking, being scared etc etc.

    It's pretty sad how petty and pathetic many ppl are.

    I hope jones negotiates a crazy deal and get paid obscene amounts of money.

    He deserves it based on his performance.

    I dont like Jones because he is cocky and comes off as very inauthentic. He tries to be the nice guy and arogant jock and it doesnt serve him.

    That said he is the best fighter in the world and deserves every penny he feels he is worth. The UFC shouldnt be cheap with the best of the best. Especially when they are incredibly young

    It's not the fact that he's trying to get a better contract, it's the fact that he's been constantly delaying fights.

    Seriously GSP wants to take a break and the entire Forum shits on him after being the company man for so many years.

    Jones acts like a diva because he wants DC vs Gustafsson so he doesn't have to face them both. He's done this before, when the UFC offered the gimme fight vs Chael and he declined. Then he declines the fight vs. Teixeira, and you expect Sherdog to give him a pass?

    If he wants a better contract good for him, he just has to stop being such a little diva about it, it's not like he sells GSP/Anderson tickets to begin with.

    You would think so,Canelo got $8m out of a 400k ppv buy rate,the promoter gets roughly half of the ppv money so $12m give or take.The maximum anyone in the ufc gets is $5 ppv points.

    So even if Jones is on the maximum he would get 2m from a 400k ppv ,why is it fair or right the ufc takes that big of a share of the profits ?

    It's "fair" because they're a damn monopoly who swallows smaller competition once it's becoming a threat (WEC, PRIDE, STRIKEFORCE)

    It's why they get to dictate how much they can give you. The NFL, NBA and MLB are also monopolies, but at least there's a union to protect their interests.

    Go ahead and try and form a fighters Union and see how fast Zuffa lays the smack down.

    It is why The Fertittas have beef with the Culinary Union, Station Casinos, mass firings and bankruptcy.

    He wants a better contract. He didn't fight Chael because it seemed shady as hell (he went on to absolutely destroy him), Texeira was delayed due to injury (he then went on to dominate).

    He fought his first 4 defences within a year. Then since Chael has done three in 12 months. He's fought 7 defenses in just over (24/09/2011 - 26/04/2014) 2.5 years, during which time he was injured. How is he a diva?

    Fighters get upset over matchmaking all the time. He's not outright refusing to fight contenders.

    I think people in general complain more about what UFC pays to lower level guys, not these multimillionares like Jonathan.

    Negotiating a better contract is one thing, but in this instance, given that many people think he lost the Gus fight, the delay looks like something else.

    If it was anyone BUT Jon Jones then yes....It seems fishy because the contract he's delaying to sign is also regarding another Gus fight.

    Huge Gus fan, but I absolutely support JOnes in getting as much as he can before signing a fight.

    But it's so close whether sherdoggers hate Dana and the UFC more, or if Jones is what they hate most in the sport they love

    Sherdog will never support a confident dark skinned champion

    Jones getting paid more doesn't help the guys making 5 grand per fight.
