And he had a month and a quarter to do one.

For another guy, with less than a week to train for Chael. Mitrione himself acknowledges that he needs to train specifically on his wrestling for a guy like Cormier. How is that different from Bones having to train differently for Sonnen?

Jon Jones WAS scheduled to fight on UFC 151 AND he turned down a last minute replacement that was NOT training.

Jon Jones was not the replacement in that situation. Mitrione IS the replacment in this situation.
How does that make a difference? Bones signed up to fight a completely different guy, a guy who hid his injury and backed out. Does him being put on the card poster somehow mean he is obligated to fight godzilla if they so choose at the last minute?

The only fact that matters is they were both offered last minute fights and they both refused. One FAR more last minute than the other. Who was the replacee and the replacer is irrelevant, from a fighter's perspective a last minute fight is a last minute fight.

You'd still complain, because you've complained about every word he's ever said.
