Sucks we don't get the fight. As disgusting as it is to kick people when they're down, this transgression has been a karmic masterpiece

Depends on if Machida beats Jones.

If Lyoto knocks him out, it'd be like we've traveled back to 2009 and everyone and their family's a Machida fan.

From a strictly martial arts perspective this is pretty sad.

If you're only preparing by using strategy to beat your opponent by studying their tape and training only the parts of your game that you need to beat them, and you have to be trained mentally from just that one perspective of beating just one particular opponent on a certain day and you can't face anyone else, then I don't call that being a martial artist. That's someone scared to fight and scared to lose.

Besides, in what other sport does a competitor/champ turn down a replacement, especially versus someone/some team from a division below. That's like the USA Basketball dream team refusing to play Lithuania if Spain couldn't play.

Jones was totally willing to take that fight when he was fighting against Shogun. He took that on what, two weeks notice?

Jones is now one of my most hated fighters.

Man this selfish decision has had crazy widespread consequences. The Joe Rogan Show at Mandalay Bay is now cancelled as well since the UFC show cancellation. Bones Knows....

IMO that's the total opposite of fighter IQ (which is something a lot of jackson fighters tend to lack).
