Different scenario with Machida.

Machida feels entitled to a full training camp because he earned a title shot. The repercussions of losing also played a big role in his decision not to take the fight on short notice. If he loses one more time to Jones he wont be getting a title shot for a long time.

Title shot entitlement + last title shot he'll get for a long time = reasonable not to take fight on short notice with champion
