My thought is this:

Was an option open to Jones not to fight for the title? Keep it a 5 round main event without the title on the line if he felt Chael doesn't deserve a title shot.

This way its a PPV fight (that people regardless of what they thought the outcome would have been, would have an opportunity to watch the fight) if Chael loses, he was coming up on short notice with no real time to prep, and if Jones lost, it sets up an epic rematch for the belt, with a huge PPV buy rate.

I wonder if this was even an option...

That's actually pretty clever. Kind of unfair to Chael if he wins though.

Chris Weidman Says He Volunteered to Fight Jon Jones at UFC 151

"I heard that Dan Henderson was hurt," Weidman said. "I said, 'Wow, I'm not getting the shot at 185, let me get Jon Jones, he's freaking awesome."

http://www.mmafighting.com/2012/8/23...nes-at-ufc-151

I'm sure at this rate where gonna hear that Tito/Randy said they would have came out of retirement to fight Jones also.

This is what Hendo reacted to the case:

Quote:
"Sadly and unfortunately, I partially tore a ligament in my knee in training. As a result I've had to make one of the toughest decisions that I have ever had to make...for the first time in my career I am forced to pull out of a fight, my fight with Jon Jones at UFC 151. Luckily, surgery is not needed at this time and I will be completely devoted to rehabing my knee as quickly as possible. I feel that I owe it to my fans and all the people supporting me to fight at my full potential in order to give myself a chance to win the UFC title. I appreciate the loyal support that I have felt from my fans. I want to thank all of my coaches and team of guys for the great support with my training camp. Most importantly, I appreciate their honesty when I needed them the most to make this very difficult decision. I also want to thank Dana and Lorenzo for being so understanding and supportive. I will continue to pursue the UFC belt with all of my heart!"

Please just check that line were he says "I also want to thank Dana and Lorenzo for being so understanding and supportive"

Why does he have to thank them for being SO UNDERSTANDING? Isn't it a knee injury? That forces him out, and that doesn't need from the other side UNDERSTANDING, its an INJURY!!!!


I think that HENDO knew he is going to waste his career and get TFKO 100% sure.
