Jon Jones has become the scapegoat for the cancellation of UFC 151. While that might not be entirely fair, he certainly can be justly criticized for one thing: not taking the fight with Chael Sonnen.
Sonnen got the call from UFC president Dana White and said he would fly in and fight him that night. Chael threw down an epic tweet that challenged Jones.
30 min to cement your legacy. Champ or Coward? I make a lot more than you do… Show up in 8 days I’ll give you my purse.

Jones turned down the bout and the internet responded with some ground and pound on Jones, shredding him for disavowing his Nike-sponsored slogan of “Just Do It”. Let’s have a look, mm-kay?
