Some UFC fighters blast Jon Jones for decision to not fight Chael Sonnen
When it was announced that Dan Henderson had been injured and would not be fighting Jon Jones at UFC 151, the world was saddened. When UFC president Dana White went on to explain that Jones had also turned down a light heavyweight title fight against Chael Sonnen, a decision White called ‘disgusting and selfish’ he wasn’t the only one that felt that way. Check out the Twitter comments of several current UFC fighters who were critical of Jones decision,
Michael Bisping @bisping
Jones said he’s not fighting chael on 8 days notice. I did. …. Just sayin
TJ Dillashaw @TJDillashaw
I can’t believe a whole show was canceled because of Jon Jones!! He should have to relinquish his belt
Michael Chiesa @MikeMav22
@JonnyBones is a fraud. He’s all about his $$ but he won’t take a fight with @sonnench who would bring in WAY more $$? He’s scared, period.
Vinny Magalhaes @VinnyMMA
How to ruin an entire event #BonesKnows
Things that people learned today: Chael @sonnench is the man! A lot of people will be losing money. Jon Jones doesn’t give a shit.
Charlie Brenneman @SpaniardMMA
Me n @rick_story took a fight on 24 hrs norice!! Champ what?!?! @ufc
@JonnyBones u can send my check to PO box 198. EH NJ. Rent is due the first, so preferably by then. Thanks. @ufc
Mackens Semerzier @MackDaMenaceMMA
Cancel the whole damn event? What happend to “I’ll fight whoever the @ufc tells me to” or does that only apply to fighting “friends”?
Michael Chiesa @MikeMav22
99.999% of @UFC fighters will be “company men” and help our organization if needed. @sonnench is a company man, @jonnybones is selfish.
Ulysses Gomez @uselessgomez
Bones wouldn’t be taking the fight on “8 days notice” he’s been training for a fight for at least 8 weeks! Chael is same style as Hendo. But he said no?
Abel Trujillo @AbelTrujillo1
The news of UFC 151 cancelled is heartbreaking!!! Trying to stay positive that its Gods plan & not mine!!! Jon Jones is selfish For that!!!
John Albert @UFCPrinceAlbert
I am so livid right now I was the biggest Jon jones fan but not anymore that guy is bad for the sport his fans and other fighters he doesn’t
Understand or forgot what it’s like being a lower ranked fighter like me or @JeffHougland who make pennies compared to him and fighting is
Our livelihood and we survive by fighting and all the hard work those 20 other fighters put in are goin to waste utterly discusted
Brock Jardine @BrockJardine
If u wanted to make money y wouldn’t u want to fight @sonnench who was just part of biggest ppv in @ufc history Really disappointed
