I think like Dana's comments here seem to validate Jones' claims, rather than make Jones look silly for claiming to feel "like a piece of meat"
if you called you boss that in the media, how do you think he would react? Professional athletes have it so easy
To be fair, the boss called him out first, and went on a pretty vicious tirade/conference call, despite the fact that he put together a card that couldn't stand on its own without Jones. If Dana didn't want to be called out, he probably shouldn't have started it.
I understand SOME of the anger at Jones, but it's really ridiculous for Dana to act like it's all Jones' fault, and give absolutely no flak to Henderson, who according to Dana, knew about the injury like a month before he pulled out of the fight, no flak to any of the other fighters who turned down the fight with Jones, and takes absolutely none of the responsibility for putting together a card that fell apart when 1 fight got cancelled.
IMO Dana is more to blame than anyone, by a long shot. Fighters get injured, he should have a backup plan that involves something other than assuming that no one will ever turn down a fight on 6 day's notice and throwing a tantrum when they do. Generally I like Dana, but sometimes he's an emotional little child, and I believe this is one of those times.
