Also, if ufc REALLY cared about their fighters getting paid, they should just toss the card on anyways as like a fight night or something, or just stfu and pay them and stop blaming other people , they run a buisness, garbage happens, shoulda planned better for it

How bout White make deeper PPV cards with a solid co-main event and do it every month instead shitting out a weak PPV card every other week.

Of course he wont. He wants to rake in as much as he can every week. 

Dont blame Jones for canceling the card. Blame your garbage undercard. Jones has made you millions since he joined UFC. Quit bitching.

Jones had a chance to step up, save an event, be a hero for the company that made him their marquee marketing force, for nike the major sports company that signed him, fight a guy who's out of shape, hasn't prepped AT ALL for him, and is at a lower weight class. Everyone knows he would have destroyed sonnen...
But he pussied out. He was scared he would lose. That's what fans don't understand

Jones was right to turn down the fight. It was a lose-lose for him.  If he beats Sonnen easily, then what does he really accomplish? Beating a smaller guy, coming off a loss, that shouldn't even have been given a title shot to begin with.  If he wins a boring decision, or gets screwed on a decision, then what? Anybody who doesn't know that matchups mean everything in MMA fights, isn't real bright.

Why can't Dana White make better cards?

As far as fighters being pissed. They should be pissed at White for considering them unworthy.  Jones didn't cancel the PPV, White did. God forbid White should ever fall on the sword and lose money on a PPV. That guy has raked for years.  His desire to make money is what this is about.  Most fighters will be broke 10 years removed from MMA. White won't. 

Why isn't the same hate being shown to Machida? He refused to fight a guy he already has fought. He also would have nearly a month to prepare. White didn't have garbage to say about Machida.  And why is that? Because he had time for a back up plan.

The truth of the matter is that Henderson didn't hurt his knee this week.  Many knew for a while that he was hurt.  At 42, Henderson was trying to man up for what could be his last title shot.  No shame there.  White knew that garbage. White is full of himself and thinks he can bully/shame fighters into doing what he wants.

Randy Couture is a consensus fan favorite. Remember White trying to cock block him from leaving the UFC.  White is a selfish prick.  If you guys want to insult people, start with White.
