This is a money fight, everyone involved knows this. The only thing we can do in this situation is hope one of them gets injured.
Well it's not like Jones has ducked anyone at LHW. I don't blame him for taking a very winnable fight, given that he is getting a full training camp, a chance to coach TUF, and a chance to shut up the idiots that think he is scared of Chael. It just shows that you can talk your way to a title shot, and that is just stupid. This is supposed to be a sport, where you should have to earn your place.
Gus, Hendo, Machida, even Davis would have all been much more legitimate. ****, even Glover.
