I really don't get Dana's thinking here. Hendo is out so he offers Machida and he said no, so he offers SONNEN?!

I guess these are the LHW standings right now guys:

1. Jones
2. Machida
3. Sonnen

Sorry Gustaffson, Teixera, and everybody else not named Sonnen!

You can tell that Dana wants to choke both Jones and Jackson right now

Sucks, I can't remember the last time Hendo had to pull out of a fight from injury, was so looking forward to seeing an H-Bomb land on Jones's face. Getting kinda tired of Jones as a champ anyways, hope Machida/Hendo is next.

It takes no balls whatsoever for Chael to take the fight on short notice because he has nothing to lose. He is coming up a weight class (although he has fought there before) and off a loss. He has done nothing to earn a shot and if he loses it would be easily dismissed since it was short notice, coming up a weight class, etc..

Jones is the one who would have everything to lose and almost nothing to gain from the fight. Thank god he turned it down. Dana is such an utter asshole, trying to turn this sport into a clown show. Making utterly retarded, nonsensical fights and then trying to blame Jackson or Jones when they rightfully laugh in his face for such idiocy.

I asked that when this all came out. I don't know that he ever has.

JONES/MACHIDA 2 AT ACC IN TORONTO! OH MY GOD!!!!!

Greg Jackson advised Jones not to fight Chael, Chael was ready to fly out in eight days - Hendo has partial tear in MCL.
Jackson didn't advise Jones to decline Chael, he pretty much instructed him to do so.

Gotta get this poison out of MMA.

Those guys probably weren't even close to making weight, Chael who knows Hendo personally might have started cutting.

Normally I give DW a lot of room when it comes to being upset over something, but he is going nuts about this one.

Plus I am going to laugh if in the next couple of days Lyoto says that he was never offered the fight.
