He was talking about how Machida didn't sell enough PPVs when he fought him, so he wasn't interested. So he fought Belfort.
At least he could have said he had unfinished business with Hendo and said he wants the fight he was supposed to have. And yet Hendo is 41 and a natural 185er.
The LHW division is so overrated. Old broken fighters and a bunch of glorified 185ers that hardly cut weight. Rashad, Hendo, Machida, Vitor, Sonnen all have MW bodies.
Vitor, Sonnen....these are just wasting time. TUF will suck as Chael and Jones in real life have no problem with eachother. It is all a WWE stunt. And pulling in WWE viewers is so important that they give a 36 year odl 185er coming off a loss a title shot against the 205 champ that hasn't been tested yet. Makes sense.
So....who is gonna test Jones?
Gustaffson? Davis? Glover? The guy that nearly died from cutting weight in the Olympics? Do tell.
