I hope they take Jones' title away.

Jones gets mad and fights everyone...at once = many great fights = lots of blood and broken faces/orbitals = big PPV buys

+ Hatres will be happy

Everyone wins...

.



BELIEVE!

And all the undercard fighters that have trained for months now, with families to feed and whatnot... that just makes me ******* sick. Why not put this on FX as a free card with the Ellenberger fight as main event? Dana has stated many times that FX just can't get enough UFC footage. Surely they could have managed this in 8 days. This seems more like another of the Dana White hissy fits rather than a well thought out decision.

LMAO...
Dana said that the fight made no sense, but on this short notice and the weight-cut others can't make, it was the best option after Machida. He said, that he thought the fans would have liked to see the fight (under these circumstances) and thought Chael would have convinced everybody (not really) that he would win. (-> Chael could have created hype immediately)
I'm sure he would have explained more and certainly knows that Chael doesn't deserve a shot at Jones right now.

It not only sucks for the other fighters, but also for all the fans who have plain tickes and hotel rooms.

Great idea, or hell at least on FUEL. I mean what are they going to cancel to show it live? UFC reruns?

I really think the UFC should have found a better way to help keep this card alive, even if it was just a live and completely free on Facebook or something.

unbelievable was looking forward to seeing if Hendo could pull it off then excited to see if sonnen could hold his own on 8 weeks notice then jones said no!

Gained allot of respect for chael taking a fight on 8 weeks notice. Lost a ton of respect for jones buy turning it down.

Bull shit champions should step up and fight whoever they put in front of them. Once you earn that title you must respect the duty that comes with it namely taking on all challengers.

Ha, a rematch in the same city. Another one sided beating and another low draw main event for Jones.

I like Jones but he should of saw the dollar values with Chael vs Machida.

Oh well, UFC 151 will be a snoozefest for a main event. I hope the co-main event and undercard and prelims prove themselves.

I think Dana should offer bigger rewards for these guys since there is no Main Event.

I just caught the end of Jackson's response, he said Jones asked him what he should do and he told him to turn it down.

Dana offered Machida the fight, not sure if that was before or after he offered it to Sonnen and he turned it down. Why should Jones be flamed for doing the same thing idk but Dana is having a nervous breakdown.

Limba you know I respect you man, but you know my thoughts on JBJ as stated on the previous articles. It's not hate, it's simply the experiences I've dealt with, with these type of individuals and their mindset. I don't agree with it.

How can one support an individual who only thinks for himself. This is why corporate America has fallen to the wayside with narcissistic behavior. You know the bankers didn't lose money the stock holders and public did...why...cuz the CEOS parachuted out. For a lack of better analogy...JBJ doesn't care about anyone else. "It's their problem not mine," mentality is what's screwing up society.

I understand their decision, but I don't agree with it considering the ramifications. Everybody is effected; fans, venue, sponsors, all fighters, TV networks, the UFC taking a major hit, all the way down to the staffing who get paid to clean the venue. Jon wants money right...he's in the position of strength where he can say look if you want me to fight I'll fight Machida, but not Chael. If you really want me to fight Chael (which he doesn't deserve) then I'd respectfully asked to be compensated $500k, 10% ppvs, throw in a new bentley, etc...etc. The UFC would probably meet half way.

In the end that would be the single biggest PR move to help bolster JBJ's rep. He gets paid double, fans appreciate it, and he'll most likely get another title defense against Chael.

Can't believe the ENTIRE CARD got pulled because of two individuals. Mind boggling...

Marcus Aurelius: Tell me again, Maximus, why are we here?
Maximus: For the glory of the Empire, sire.

Baked, not fried... the healthy choice.
