I get what you're saying about Machida and Shogun not wanting to fight Jones after he's had a full training camp and they haven't. It was your '8 days notice' comment that I was correcting. Nothing more, nothing less. Choose to get uppity if you want, but I didn't mean any harm by it.
Is there a source for this? My understanding was that they declined the 151 fight, and Dana was then reluctant to give them the shot in Toronto because they already turned him down.
