They couldn't ask Machida he was on a plane . I'd like to know the story with the other 30 odd fighters. Why isn't Ryan Jimmo, Matt Hamill, Stephan Bonnar, Glover, Griggs, everyone crying out for this fight. Why did the UFC go to a guy outside the weight class when the champion made it very clear he wasn't going to fight him. Very passive aggressive from the UFC in my eyes.

This is another one of those sad tweets from other 151 fighters :/
That's terrible, the guy gets 12,000 if he wins and 6,000 dollars if he loses and he's spending that much money for his family to see him fight.

Someone tell me wtf is wrong with Dana. I know he's an idiot sometimes, but seriously Dana, shut...the....****....up.

He's accusing JONES of doing something bad for the sport. Jones??? Yeah, because offering a title fight to a a guy who lost his last fight, currently fights in a lower weight class, and has never won a fight at lhw in the ufc, that is GREAT for the sport.

Thank god Jones turned it down, if he hadn't, you could just shut the UFC down for good, not one event, and go watch the WWE. Everyone would be saying loud and clear "The ufc is not a meritocracy, we don't want the best fighters, we just want soap opera'.

Hey guys, I know, lets call Hulk Hogan, I think he's available to fight Jones. How about Bob Sapp, or Jean Claude Van Damme? Those would all be popular too right?

**** off Dana. Try offering the fight to more than one actual LHW. I know Machida turned it down, so your next call is Sonnen?? How about Weidman? Or ANY other lhw who has actually won a couple fights at lhw?

No one stepped up apparently.

Fighting Jones on 8 days notice is suicide, sure you may not have "anything to lose" like a ranking or a title but the chances of you taking an ass whippin' you won't soon forget are pretty damn high, and only one man was willing to take that challenge and it's Chael P. Sonnen.

jones didn't ruine the night, Dana did

have no love for JJ but really don't think Dana has any reason to be mad. well he has every reason to be mad at his own incompetence,but jones has nothing to do with it.

sonnen, just got murdered last fight, moved up to lhw,untested at lhw at least for a long time,has nothing to lose but everything to gain. I can imagine sonnen step up to face jds should cain can't fight ufc155. Not to mention that a bout with sonnen goes both inside and outside the octagon. sonnen creates tons of mess and drag you into it. Any one at jj's position, at least for now, would avoid being associated with sonnen.

JJ designed his game plan for henderson not sonnen,his mind is set for henderson not sonnen. if he takes the sonnen offer its great,but there is nothing wrong otherwise. after all he doesn't have to risk his belt to cover ufc's loss.

Dana, who learned nothing from the jds-overeem incident, has no back up plan, got no marketable co-main event,is the one to blame. Dana cancelled the event because he is not at all ready for unforeseen difficulties, and now he blames JJ for not cleaning up the mess.that's so convincing.

Jones is at fault for not accepting the fight(he had nothing to lose at all) and the UFC is at fault for not putting out a better product.

Jones isn't obligated to fight Sonnen, and they can't make him fight, but at the same time, it's not Dana's fault Koscheck got hurt. I bet you anything if this was Koscheck/Ellenberger instead of Ellenberger/Hieron this would have taken the FX slot next week and they'd have just lived with the "shitty card" flood bomb they'd have got. They could have atleast salvaged it instead of canceling it altogether but it's nearly impossible to promote a guy like Hieron who hasn't fought in the UFC in YEARS as a headliner, he's not a guy like Diaz or Overeem coming over.

Regardless of all of that, Jon is the one who said before he fought Shogun "this is Dana's world" and even said he'd fight Rashad if it meant his job is on the line. I'm still a fan of Jon's but he's become a human contradiction and every week he does something to piss people off it seems. Both parties are at fault here.
