I've never understood the whole "haters just hate whatever Jones does" mentality. He has these "haters" because he thinks he's bigger than the sport.

I don't know how you could say that before this happened though.

Not to mention Jackson just looks like a huge creep. Weirdo.

Well... monumental PR fuck up from Jones, yet again really. I love him as a fighter but I am starting to get tired of his shit. White must be spitting feathers. I kind of feel this is the result of too many events i.e. events like this which fall apart when the main event goes to pot. But you'd be fuming if you were fighting on that card. Utter fuck up from Jones really. If I was White I'd have done everything in my power to keep the card. Horrible situation for all involved though.

Too bad they couldn't have salvaged the show. If you bought tickets or still bought the PPV, it was a bit cheaper or you got some sort of promo code for the UFC store or something. I still wouldn't buy it but others might have.

I don't think a promo code for the UFC store would make up for it haha. Even I was pissed off just not being able to watch it on TV. I still think Belfort is a strange choice. What about Gustaffson?

On the other hand, you'd be fucking delighted about this whole fiasco if you already had tickets for UFC 152! 3 main event worthy fights!

Jones has opened up as a -1500 favorite over Vitor.

I might just slap down $100 on the underdog.

probably true, but that doesnt mean they knew he wouldnt still fight. lets say they did plan on breaking the news to dana late in order to do some kind of sneak attack... Jon Jones would still be in better shape than Chael by a mile.

He's just arrogant and says a lot of stupid shit.

The first strike for me with Jones was when he said his least favorite thing about being a fighter was signing replica belts that fans didn't earn.

I really hope Stann pulls it out against Bisping, should be a great fight though; as much as I dislike him, Bisping rarely fights poorly.
