ipso_facto Posted August 24, 2012 Report Share Posted August 24, 2012 And this is being brutally honest: 1) This is what happens when the UFC spreads themselves too thin with expansion. They either need to back off a bit, or make sure they have a Plan B to implement when they run into hitches such as this. So the UFC is partly at fault here. 2) How long did Hendo's injury happen before he notified the UFC of the problem? He's a "man's man", so he probably kept quiet about it until the last minute when he realized the injury wasn't going to improve. So Hendo is probably also partly to blame as well. 3) Given that Jones had a full training camp, and the fact that Hendo and Sonnen are similar style and stature of fighters, he should have taken the fight. Regardless of my first 2 points, he owes EVERYTHING that he has to the UFC...and should have made the effort to bail out his bosses. Are you a professional that can role with the punches (so to speak)...or not? On a personal note, he probably has a good heart as a human being...but he has also become quite obtuse because of his success, yet still has the mind frame a small boy. He is quite immature for a young man in his early twenties. And although this kind of brutal fighting can probably be a bit scary for competitors, I also think he is a bit of a coward.
