According to Jones and confirmed by HBO, at the time of that interview, HBO had been turned down by Benn, Collins, and Liles. Jones always claimed he made offers and they were turned down. HBO I guess got tired of hearing that, and Jones told them to make a fight with whomever. But then HBO started getting turned down.
So Jones wanted big fights, but according to that interview, and someone posted it here a month ago, even HBO couldn't get people to fight him. Benn turned down a career high payday.
