    LOL After so much back-lashing Dana finally got some backbone and told Jone “Bonehead” Jones, “Alright buddy, you either rematch Gus or go to either Bellator or WSOF!” And of course, Jon “bonehead” Jones said, “Uh, well, it’s my career, but since you insist, I’ll take the rematch.” LOL moron!

    • 213ninja

      that didn’t happen, but ok.

      • Guest

        How do you know? Were you hanging out in the office too?

        • 213ninja

          i know because that’s not how any of this works. not only does Jon Jones have like 5 fights left on his contract, but recent quotes from Dana and Lorenzo demonstrate that there is some desire for the UFC to extend it now. After Barao’s loss, Dana referred to Bones as the top p4p fighter in the world. i don’t even know why i’m defending my position, this is dumb.

          • Di Sleeky Mann

            Just say what you know not what you think happened. All those of you who are trashing Jone will eat dust later…

          • 213ninja

            everyone should know Dana White didn’t threaten to fire Bones, the top p4p fighter in the world, who happens to have mad fights left on his contract. these dudes questioning whether or not Jon Jones should have a job are just dumb.

          • DREW JITSU

            Dana said the other day when asked if jones was stalling for some reason to renegotiate his contract and Dana flat out said jones still has a couple fights on his current contract and signing the bout agreement had nothing to do with his contract .. So no jones didn’t do anything about his contract and let’s see what Dana thinks about the p4p list after Gus takes the lhw strap back to Sweden .

            Actually I think Demitrius Johnson is #1 p4p, he is just under-rated because hes a 125er. Jones is a pussy. He shouldnt even be ranked since he is such a scared little pansie.

  • zzgelo

    HAHAHHA Fkn troll!

  • Mr E

    Ducking DC, what a shame…

    • fsunoles10

      yall are some of the most fair weather idiots i have ever seen. i genuinely dont like jones but do you idiots even pay attention to mma? when he said he wanted to fight dc instead of gus everybody says he is ducking gus but now he has the fight with gus people say he is ducking dc even though the ufc made it quite clear gus will be the one getting the shot and theres not much choice for jones. the real shame in this is that idiots like you even have a avenue to spew your dumb ass opinions. its like yall are genuinely retarded.

      • We.Are.Legion

        He was asking for DC because he only wants to grind out wins against wrestlers since wrestlers are generally not finishers. He and GSP are like to pussies in the same pants.

      • Carlos Alberto Valle Sitja

        Don’t feed the troll.

  • Prakash van Klaasen

    AND STILL THE CHAMPION OF DUCK FIGHTING CHAMPIONSHIP

    • dick dale

      ? you must be new to combat sports.

    • Carlos Alberto Valle Sitja

      I don’t know if this Is trolling. If not…. It’s justo retarded.

  • Rambo

    “And still “a jerk. I can’t wait to see mauler take his belt from him.

  • Michael

    Probably had security drag him into the meeting kicking and screaming for ducking Dana as well.

  • Corey Hutton

    So Jones is not only afraid of a fighting Gus, but looks like his rich ass is afraid of buying a good camera.

  • Joe

    Gus gave Jones a hell of a fight the first time around, but Jackson is too smart of a coach. I believe the rematch will have a strategy the negates Gus’s offense. I hope I’m wrong and Gus lays down the worst beating in UFC history. I think the real reason for asking for DC first was his knee injury. I don’t think that he is scared of Gus, but I do think he doesn’t want DC at 100%. Here’s to the hope that Gus gives him a beating again, and that the judges are watching the same fight as the rest of us this time.

    • petefrontkick

      hope gus can corner jones and land a tiger knee to jones jaw and get that belt …that coward jones signed after he had no choice

  • DREW JITSU

    Lol… No and still that night buddy Bruce buffer is gonna be saying …AND NEW UFC light heavyweight champion Alexander “the mauler” Gustafson

    • gigabalster

      Yeah OK.. wish I can see your face with disgust that night

  • I hate trolls

    It’s funny listening to all the trolls and haters who’s greatest achievement in life, is working out that they can abuse people and get away with it because they’re sat behind a computer screen like the sad pathetic weaklings they are, knowing in reality they wouldn’t last 2 minutes in a cage opposite a little girl. . I’m not a JJ nut hugger, but you cannot deny what he’s achieved. . Deserved champion. Deserves respect. . Don’t listen to the trolls and haters, they’re just sad pathetic very jealous key board warriors with twigs for biceps!!

    • fsunoles10

      i just cant stand dick holes who are on somebodies bandwagon and think that the thing to do is be as disrespectful as they possible can when speaking on his opponent. i highly doubt most of them work out, most likely sloppy body people who much like that 1 guy that got caught pirating ufc events live with their mothers. i would love to head kick the hell of out these people.

      • We.Are.Legion

        And you have room to talk, why?

    • We.Are.Legion

      And then there are those of us who ARE fighters with 28 pro bouts and DIDNT get to pick our opponents. Jones is a puss.

      • I hate trolls

        Well then you should be able to understand how annoying it is when you’ve defeated 6 or 7 of the toughest fighters on earth and people still call you a pussy (yes that makes sense. . What a pussy :-/). . What Jones has accomplished at such a young age is nothing short of epic, and people who call him a pussy or whatever else as far as I’m concerned are jealous pathetic key board warriors who’s main expertise is being a nob. . I teach MMA full time, and Jones is one of the most skilled brilliant fighters I’ve seen, and deserves respect!!

    • Ian Price

      I agree , I don’t like Jones and I still give him respect. But I’m just saying if Gus wins in September it’s not a fluke.

      • I hate trolls

        Yes mate I’ll give you that 100%. . The first fight was epic and Jones won it by the skin of his teeth, but I did think he definitely won it. . I’ve always rated Gustaffson and couldn’t understand at all why people thought he’d be an easy fight for Jones. I wasn’t at all surprised at how close it was. . And Gus’s impressive destruction of an up and coming killer like Jimi Manuwa was proof in my book of his calibre, that along with his easy defeats of Shogun, Thiago Silva and of course the late Matt Hamill. . If Gus wins this I’ll take my hat off to him although he already has my utmost respect as a truly elite fighter. .

    • julian moran

      Gus and Cormier also deserve respect.

      • I hate trolls

        Yes they do, top fighters. .

  • gigabalster

    gus should go dig a ditch and climb in it after he get mauled by Jones! gus needs to stfu and go away and his nut huggers can follow.. True fighters know gus just doesn’t have the talent to and skills to become the champ.. ok he’s tough, but that just won’t cut it when comes to fighting Jones or DC..

    • jorma schlack

      and you know this because you are a “true fighter”?

      • Gary Fredericks

        No, because it’s obvious.

        • jorma schlack

          aahh good point, crushed it with the “no” clause…..jones is def the talent but if you think that gus doesnt have the chin to withstand and a punchers chance against jones youre silly

      • We.Are.Legion

        Hes an internet ninja.

    • Brown4eva

      Says an even more equal Nut hugger in being a JOnes fan!!

    • Ian Price

      You’re wrong. Gus is the real deal and you know it. Even Jones admitted it. And DC admitted it. And rogan admitted it. Many Many fighters admitted it. His only loss was to an Olympic caliber wrestler who caught him in a submission years ago before he was really well versed in submissions.

      • blackcat63

        You just hoping for another klitchoe but this isnt no boxing. and you seen how long it took for them to roid their way into that sport. .

      • Ian Price

        Why didn’t he win the first fight? Because it’s a fight. You never know what’s going to happen. But he certainly wasn’t a 7:1 underdog. Do you disagree?

      • greaseygranny

        I think he lost because he gassed. Only reason. It was still a VERY close fight and Jones was really racked up after this fight. He’s never had to deal with a two day hospital stay. Nobody has the reach Gus has and if Jones can’t take him down, it could be a long night for Jones. He really wanted nothing to do with this rematch. DC said it himself. I think Gus is in Jones’s head. I think Jones will lose this fight. Either or, if it’s anything like the last fight, we’re all in for a fawkin’ treat. I think it was one of the best fights of the decade. Anyone that doesn’t wanna see this fight again, should stop watching MMA ASAP.

  • Brown4eva

    Yeah your really excited !! So excited you didn’t wanna fight him !! So much for Aug ..Guess you cry baby ass must have got an extension as your 8 to 10 week training camp wasn’t gonna fly by the time Aug rolled around!! So it’s bumped to Sept 27 th better book that WWwwaaambulance and Hospital for another 2 days and 2 nghts stay like you did when you laid in that Toronto Hospital unable to fly and pissed in a bag during your whole stay !! Your gonna get exposed again as are your —- ——– fans !

    • fsunoles10

      so he doesnt want to fight him yet signed the bout agreement and its already scheduled to take place? the nut rider in you is strong sir and i dont even like jones.

  • McArthur Brookings

    Once Jones beats this guy, haters will go back to the crybaby crap about him moving to hw. Jon hurry up and silence this fool and his followers.

    • dick dale

      unfortunately, even WHEN bones beats up Gus again, its gonna be a huge circus about DC. every question answered after the fight will be about DC

    • Ian Price

      Apparently, Vegas isn’t so convinced.

      • Ian Price

        Huh? Yes, he’s still champ. Yes you’re right, I hate that, and im trying to deal with it. How does that make me a chump? I admit I dislike Jones and his attitude. And maybe it’s time for…. I dunno how to say this without sounding insulting…. Maybe it’s time for you to stop tossing the Jones salad? Look, all I’m saying is that jones and Gus are pretty similar. If they fought 100 times, sure Jones may win more, but it’d won’t be 90-10. Maybe 60-40.

        • Ian Price

          I’m just talking facts. If Vegas odds are right, and both DC and Gus are more or less 2:1 underdogs vs jones, that means there’s a > 50% chance one of them will beat Jones in these next 2 fights. You realize that, right? I respect your admiration of Jones;I just don’t want to see your unrealistic expectations not being met….. Don’t let me catch you crying like a little baby if he loses. Chael: not a problem. Gus and DC: much more of a problem! DC is a monster, undersized at HW and still destroying everyone. Don’t expect Jones to dominate like he usually does.

        • Baller31

          Now you’re gay bashing too?? You’re such a bigoted loser, I can’t wait until the internet access in your trailer gets turned off for failure to pay

      • Baller31

        Isn’t your mommy calling you for dinner?

  • Mark Gilbert

    well all I can say is we are going to see who really wants the belt the worst,, both are good fighters and if Jones is really as good as he has been labeled as he will KO Gus… Now if Gus wants to win the belt he will have to totally dominate Jones on his feet and on the ground…. either way I dont care who wins just want the winner to fight the hottest fighter right now in my opinion is DC!

    • Dragon Kid

      Not everyone can be finished you know. Some are just too tough to get finished unless age factor catches up to them.

      • Ian Price

        Gus was almost finished the last fight. But be survived somehow. Tough sun of a gun! I think it will be a different fight this time. Gus will simply dominate. Jones isn’t getting any better, but Gus will show improvement. The other thing is, while bones is more creative, Gus is faster than bones. And he matches him in length and wrestling. And we all know jones is not a knockout artist, while Gus has knocked people out. Seriously, how many times have you seen jones knock someone out? He’s more of the “elbow or knee while in close” or “submission” or “hide behind my jab and oblique kicks.”

        This won’t work on Gus, as evidenced by their first fight.

        If Gus is anything more than a 2:1 dog I’m putting money on him.

        • Dragon Kid

          Jones not getting any better? He played Teixeiras games and dominated him for five full rounds. Jones is much more well rounded than Gus. Gus is just a tough guy with good boxing & takedown defence. He’s got no ground game. Jones will win again.

          • Ian Price

            Who was the only guy ever who took Jones down?

          • Dragon Kid

            The same guy who failed to take the belt from Jones. So what’s ur point?

        • Baller31

          20 win streak over mostly cans and a few decent fighters. He was overrated, as is your knowledge if mma

        • Baller31

          I agree. It was really surprising, but Gus out wrestled jones, and is clearly a superior striker. I see him winning by ko this time.

    • Wardsize

      DC beat a barista on 2 weeks notice and DH who should have retired 10 years ago. Let him fight Rumble or Rashad.

  • Jthor

    Wouldn’t it have been quicker for him to have just called them?

  • tcat19861 .

    lol jones thinks hes doing us a favor lol

    • We.Are.Legion

      He thinks he did the world a favor by being born. He didnt do any favors when he refused the Sonnen fight and caused the UFC to have to cancel an event for the first time in history, did he. Bahahahaha He was scared of an out of shape middleweight.

      • Ian Price

        Yeah that was pretty silly

    • Conner

      He is unless your not going to watch it.

  • MMAFAN

    He looked straight at the camera during his announcement except when the word “excited” came out of his mouth. Not saying he’s afraid though its obvious he doesn’t want the fight. His skills are impeccable, his personality is just too fake. I wish the guy would just keep his mouth shut and not complain who or when the UFC wants him to fight. Lets just hope this fight is as good as the first.

  • We.Are.Legion

    Its about time he grows a pair. What a sniffling little p*ss bag.

    • blackcat63

      It’ll be good to see him win again but he’ll never stop shit talkers from talking shit cause thats what they do best.

      • http://www.MMAWeekly.com/ Ken Pishna – MMAWeekly

        Approve.

    • Timmy

      Yeah, he’s a total pussy for wanting to fight an undefeated, former heavyweight top 3, multiple time Olympian instead of a guy he previously beat.

      • Baller31

        No, for trying to duck the guy who put him in the hospital

        • Baller31

          You’re a douchebag. He won by points, but still got his ass whooped and landed in the hospital. A real champion would want to fight Gus again to erase any doubt. And what does boxing have to do with anything you dumb f%#k?

    • Wardsize

      Says the douche who would tuck his junk.

  • TheCerealKiller

    Gus gets better at what he does every fight.

    Jones brings a new game plan every fight.

    Jones finishes in the second round.

    Still a Gus fan.

  • mmalive

    WOW,

    How come these DAMN ASS CLOWN Jones haters keep adding fuel to FIRE.

    Jones is not like able, but his record speaks wonders!!!

    Jones is smart and will come in with good game plan to DIS MANTLE Gus.

    BTW, The man Jones ALREADY BEAT.

    The only one that EVEN came close to defeating Jones was Belfort.

    Look what happened there.

    No one SINCE has DONE SO.

    War ON Jones!!!

    BTW, I do not like Jones , but his record and wins are ground in UFC LHW Division.

    • Baller31

      So Gus didn’t come close to ( and many believe he did) beating jones? Have you ever watched a UFC fight??

      • mmalive

        Hey Low life Baller31,

        I saw the fight and what was the RESULT?

        Jones WON!!!

        Gus DID NOT do enough at towards end of fight to get judges decision LOSER!!!

        Here we have another Jones hater that can not admit Jones is the REAL DEAL!!!

        • Baller31

          I don’t dislike jones, I dislike ignorant morons like you who can never seem to make a valid point

          • mmalive

            Hey DUMB A$$, you are the CLOWN that does not know MMA.

            My points are QUITE VALID.

            You CAN NOT accept reality as you live in your own world ONLY your mind produces.

            Dude, get life FOOL.

            UNLESS someone beats has the UFC LW title he is the BEST LH on planet.

            BTW, I do not like Jones

  • Seth

    Soo…he became excited about this fight within couple of days? Another quick turnaround for him…is he pregnant or something? Those mood swings are weird.

    • Carlos Alberto Valle Sitja

      You know he is promoting a fight? This still a business. It’s weird how some people justo don’t get it.

      • Seth

        Its him doing same thing as Wandarlei – doing/saying something stupid, which turns people against you and then, where you can do sh** about it, you try to fix it.

    • Ian Price

      He’ll be in his third trimester when he faces Gus

    • Seth

      Smarter than you, since you can’t understand word “joke”. And its not me who spam all over my comments…you must be really butthurt, to go all over the place and spam each my comment, bi-a-tch.

      • Seth

        It was a joke. You should leave the internet, if you can’t understand that. Go back to your homework, nerd.

  • Biz

    Well after Jones beats this guy AGAIN what will everyone say. Jon Jones is the best LH in the world. Before anyone brings up DC tell me who he has beat at LH.

    • Ian Price

      You don’t have to have a good record if you’re moving down in weight. But yes, he just so happens to have beaten everybody at HW too (not all were cans either!!), and Cain, the baddest man on the planet who trains with him, has vouched for him that he’s the real deal. Rory trains with GSP, and we know GSP’s vouching was no joke. Uriah said Dillashaw could be the next champion, and that was no joke. Aldo trained with Barao and before he came to the UFC Aldo said “watch out for Barao, not all his wins in Brazil were cans”. Suga said watch out, Jones is the real deal. So why not take Cain’s word for it, especially when it’s combined with a beast like DC. Nobody ragdolls the warmaster (Barnett), NOBODY.

      • Biz

        DC must have a career that I have not seen. When you say he beat everyone at HW art you talking about Mir, Silva and Barnett.

        • Ian Price

          So you’re saying those 3 fighters are not top 10 heavyweights? You’re saying they’re all cans? Why do you think people have been asking if he’ll fight the #1 fighter on the planet, Cain? Maybe because he’s at that level? Or you think it was just a joke and Cain is also lying about DC’s skills?

          • Biz

            Well Barnett is the only top ten he has fought. No Mir is not a can in fact he held the title. That time is over he has lost to every good fighter he has fought in the last five years. Silva….be serious. If you believe he is top ten then you are simply confused. But you did make a very valid argument “Cain V says he is good” Well I guess if Cain V says it the part the seas baby. DC has beat no one and I mean NO ONE at LH and I mean NO ONE until he beats a legitimate top ten he should not be in same convo as Jones.

          • Ian Price

            Your arguments are so convincing, I’m almost believing them! You do have some valid points. I guess it’s normal for the skeptics (and non-skeptics alike) to use a wait-and-see approach. I don’t love DC like I love other fighters, like Condit, but do respect him. My opinion is that he is in fact the real deal, and I’m not the only one. Look at the betting lines in Vegas….

          • Biz

            Im not disagreeing that DC is a good fighter. In fact I would say he is pretty damned good. My point is that he has beat no one at LH and does not deserve a title fight against the GOAT. Yes I said it, see his resume pretty impressive I think he has only beat five former champs and never been beaten in the ring. DC is one maybe tow wins away.

  • s

    jones vs gus was a fight that got of gone either way either a draw or a win for gus jones did win 1 round clear was round 5 other then that every round was close

  • Guest

    Jones is a joke…I used to beat his ass back when I trained at Jackson’s. The UFC is just protecting this douche and paying fighters to throw their fights with Jones.

    • inferno73

      hahahhaa…..I believe you….ok now go and get a job…

    • Jo Joanisse

      me 2 what a pussy hey

  • Jo Joanisse

    i have a gus shirt lol

  • Jo Joanisse

    jones gonna be ready this time, i just hope that gus staff bring something new to the table
