They said a number of guys turned down the fight, and made it seem like Chael was the only one willing to step in. Well, Weidman said he'd also do it, but that was after it was already cancelled.

apparently silva was willing to step in to fight another LHW as well (not jones). anyway, what a clusterfvck of a day.

i want to see weidman vs. belcher. weidman's been itching for a fight and belcher is a worthy, good test.

So where is all the hate for machida, rua and the like for refusing a fight when they would have much more to gain and less to lose on a longer time frame? And jones offered to accept chael on the 22.

Rua cant fight because he's not medically cleared to even train fool. He was just in a war with Vera, Machida would have been the logical choice but when Machida stepped up to the plate last time against Jones he got submitted the f@ck out, he wants a full camp. Whats weird is why the heck they choose Vitor and not Sonnen?

He got caught with a standing guillotine.. it wasn't like Jones was dominating the whole fight.


AND PEOPLE!!! SONNEN DOESN'T DESERVE A F*CKING TITLE SHOT!!
STOP ASKING WHY THEY'RE PICKIN THIS AND THAT OVER CHAEL!

Anyways, Machida doesn't know who he's training for now. Since Dana said he has to fight another Top Contender now...
The system is so F***** up right now just because of a 1 fight.

he was winning round one, got blasted with a elbow I believe in Round 2 got staggered and submitted standing up which is rare because its hard to pull from that angle. Wether we like it or not Jones annihilated Bader,Shogun,Machida and Rashard.

Another thing I find weird is why didnt they just offer to Gustafson? Why get someone from MW?

Yes because the UFC is always about who deserves it more.

I can't blame Machida and Shogun for not accepting.

Both have already lost to Jones once and, to me, it's a surprise that they're back in the conversation for a title shot so quickly. They both fought recently and Shogun didn't exactly come out unscathed from the Vera fight. In all likelyhood, this would be their last shot at the LHW title and to go into that against a monster like Jones on relatively short notice? I know I'd want to be as prepared as possible. I don't think it's fair to penalize them.

The whole Jones/Sonnen thing, I don't know what to think of all that. Who knows what's really true in all those talks?
