Man, does the hate for Jones ever run deep on mania. Here is a guy who has stepped it up and fought all former champions in his last 4 fights and easily disposed of them. He gets flack for every fight he wins. People complain he should be a HW, he's a squealer, he's a hypocrite, he's a fake, he's boring, he's insert whatever else you can come up with here, but what you cannot dispute is that he is certainly the best LHW ever.
People really have selective memories here, and that is fine, but if someone can honestly say that him fighing Sonnen, who is not fought at 205 for many years, is of any value, then they are the ones that are delusional and butt hurt. Easy to criticize Jones, but what gain did he have in this? He doesn't need the money, so rule that out. He doesn't need the glory. He isn't a moron - why take on something of no value to save a useless POS card? He extended his offer to Sonnen for UFC 152, and then the UFC changed their minds. That is the question that should be asked.
And how about asking the following questions???
Why did Machida turn down the fight at UFC 152
Why did Rua turn this down as well
Why did the UFC pull Sonnen from fighting Jones
All those answers are in some threads now but look at the measly response those threads received. Why is that? Nobody slamming any of those guys or their decisions? Of course not, because of the hate for Jones that runs deep here. Hate on all you delusional fucks, because you fail to realize that this is not about Jones......nope, it is about envy how someone rose so fast to run through all of your heros. That is what it boils down to. It's not about the DUI, it's not about the coaching from GJ, it's not about the fact that he cuts down to 205, it is all about the hate that people have of a star. Same reason why people hate on GSP or Silva....they are stars.
So go flame on about how Jones has ruined the UFC.......and selectively forget how some others, including your beloved Danass, have done the same things in the past 24 hours without any repercussion.
