    As much as i'd love to see any potential rematch in Sweden I just think they lose out on so much revenue and exposure. I can understand that Jones wants it to be right, why wouldn't you being the champ?. He said he wasn't trying to duck anyone just wants to make sure that everything was right first.

    With regards to the local shows and the champions, Yes it does. I've seen firsthand, promoters actually requesting fighters that clearly are not the best match just to protect their own interests. Not sure how that progresses MMA or the fighter but the local fans get what they want and the promoters are able to sell the tickets.

    Personally, you should agree to fight anyone to defend the belt, if you don't then you are not the champ as clearly worried about losing that belt.
    If you didn't see it with your own eyes, or hear it with your own ears, don't invent it with your small mind and share it with your big mouth!

    Haha, love these photos.

    When is the rematch, providing Jones doesn't pick up a mysterious injury and has to pull out?
    An unintuitive consequence of conditional probability.

    Haha must've been tough getting such a beating for a guy that has pretty much strolled through every other opponent. Tough for Gus; proper put it on him and really beat him up but still lost the fight

    Part mind games, part hype and part business imo, he wants to build up the fight, wants to get in Gus's head and he probably wants a lot of money. I think he beats gus comfortably this time, i believe jones won the first fight anyway, 3/2 it could've gone either way 3/2 but jones is the champ and shouldn't lose the belt like that, I think he underestimated gus's wrestling believing it to be where it was when he fought phil davis, I think this time he will not underestimate him. Either way I think cormier beats both, fast enough to cover the distance, far better/stronger athlete than gus or bones, much better wrestler and has the toughness and striking to get it done.

    Found out those triangles under the spade on Gus' arm are his fight record. If he wins the fight, he fills in the triangle. If he losses, he leaves it empty. For the Jones fight, he got it half filled in cause he feels he won the fight. Ummmm, okay.
