I agree it's disgraceful to martial arts, though I also understand that the UFC is a business first and foremost. I was going to watch this fight anyway; now there's some added drama. I appreciate the additional intensity, though I do think they went a bit too far. I did love the DC shoe toss at the end, great camera work there.

I think it's ridiculous that DC still gets to fight Jone. If Gustafsson will be healthy by January, the fight should go to him, as originally intended. Put DC in a contender eliminator.

That's a tough situation for both Gus and DC. Gus obviously wasn't healthy enough to go, and DC is on record as stating that he took the fight knowing he himself has a knee injury (though some of that may also be some bravado). At the end of the day I think both Gus and DC are deserving of the fight, and if anything this feud between Bones and DC has cemented the latter as the next title challenger. It's still a business, and regardless of talent in the octagon, the UFC is always going to go with the bigger meal ticket. It might make sense to have an eliminator fight between Gus and DC if Bones can't get healthy, though I imagine UFC brass would rather get two title fights out of this, rather than one.

We'll have to wait a bit longer, and hopefully we'll still see some good fights come out of this. I've gotten to the point where, regardless of his immense talent, I'm looking forward to someone shutting Jones the fuck up and feeding him some humble pie.
