Sounds selfish to me. First off, he's already rich as hell. How the hell could not taking this fight deter his family at all. The guy makes tons! It's the fighters on the undercard who need to be worried. I understand wanting to prepare himself for Chael and all, but honestly, Jones would probably destroy Chael. Chael was out of shape, hasn't trained a day. A messy situation here. I'm trying to see Jones side of it, but as a fan it's just really hard because I wanted to see Jones/Hendo and when he turned down Sonnen, that was a huge disappointment. If you've been training long enough and are confident in your skills, you should be able to step in the octagon anytime and take on anyone. Look at guys like Chris Weidman (against Maia), Charlie Brennaman(24hrs notice against Story), Cerrone against anyone really haha. Jones is a beast, and I think we can all agree on this even if you hate him, he could of stepped in September 1st and won. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
