Has the money now gotten big enough that the top fighters are rich enough that they can start picking and choosing their fights based on what they find to be acceptable risk/reward?
I hope Jones isn't turning into Mayweather.
I don't see the problem here, after a fighter has whooped 18 different asses inside a cage, and defended UFC Gold 4x over the past year.
If a fight with Anderson Silva is what you are driving at, look no further as to 13'. This is the fight game my friend. Contracts should be as big as Jones' with Nike.
JJ v Sonnen will sell 500k, and no other match up out there right now could.
