Well, looks like Jones just beat himself.

He really shot himself in a foot today. Dana did the right thing telling everybody what and how it happened. Jones is going to take a big hit, I can't wait to see why people say leading up to his fight with Machida, and what he has to say for himself. Phone Post

Getting Chael on 8 days' notice AND helping Zuffa get out of a bad situation that could cost the company multi-millions is all to Jones' advantage. Haha, I can't believe Bones and Greg Jackson couldn't see that.
