This is where you and I think differently. It is not about the title shot and who is deserving. If this was the fight they planned for 3 months from now I would absolutely agree with Jones. The UFC was in a bind and they got Chael to step up and take the fight and save the card. Heck, Chael probably would have fought him without the title on the line. He is a company man and Jones isn't, it is that simple.
