I think both of you are wrong. Chael is not getting a shot cause no one else would that is just incorrect. Not taking a fight on short notice and not wanting to fight Jones are two completely different animals. Right now Hendo is healed up and willing to fight Jones. Machida said he is not just willing to fight Jones, he wants his chance with a full champ to fight Jones. We have willing and able contenders but Chael got alot of attention when Jones refused to fight him on short notice. Then the trash talk came in and that alone is the reason he is fighting for the title next. Because of the media shitstorm following the cancelled event.
Also Diaz is not getting his shot because he sells. He is getting it because he pissed off GSP enough for GSP to actually request the fight. It wasn't a fight presented to him by Zuffa it was a fight he brought to Zuffa.
