That's the way the cookie crumbles.
Former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) light heavyweight contender Phil Davis has packed his bags and headed for Spike TV, signing a new deal with Bellator MMA this week after failing to come to terms on a new contract under the crowded ZUFFA banner.
Good to see Jon Jones has made peace with the "Wonderful" decision.
Maybe the whole wonderful thing will come into play now https://t.co/xRn7H9wqQl— Jon Bones Jones (@JonnyBones) April 16, 2015
"Bones" followed that up during a recent Google chat (via MMA Fighting):
"Oh my goodness, 'Mr. JV,' himself. To be honest, I'm happy for him if he's going to make more money over there. Ultimately, it's about providing for our families. It's a job at the end of the day. If he's going to be treated better over there, good for him. I do believe the competition is not as stiff at Bellator as the UFC so I think he'll definitely be a top three guy in the world now. Good for him. Maybe he'll even win it. To be a world champion and to make a little more money, that's a win-win. But good luck 'crumbling me like a cookie' from all the way over there."
Davis had beef with Jones prior to last year's UFC 172 event, promising to crumble him like a cookie. Instead, it was "Mr. Wonderful" who crumbled in a light heavyweight showdown with the resurgent Anthony Johnson, who took over the No. 1 contender spot for next month's Memorial Day Weekend event.
