I'm holding my breath here. Hopefully it's to put an end to rumors that are hopefully false.

Hendo must be out.

This is uncalled for otherwise.

Yep. You don't call emergency press conferences to say that everything is ok.

Predictions? Is Machida coming in or is Jones just off the card? Normally I would assume it is just too late to replace someone for a title shot because of weight issues and who deserves it. This is a rare case where Dana has already said Machida gets the next shot and he cuts no weight (or virtually none) so he could actually do it.

Without a full camp obviously no one would blame Machida for not wanting that fight but it is at least conceivable.

If Hendo is still out I hope they keep JBJ on the card and give someone a chance to fill in.

And to be completely honest, I would give TONS of respect to Machida if he stepped in last minute. Card savers always deserve so much respect.

I'd rather it not be Machida I'd like the last minute step up to be somewhat dramatic, a rematch with Rashad, a comeback from Randy, a step up from Chael, a sign in from Mousassi. Or maybe they will dump the LHW fight and bring in Josh Barnett for a HW debut from Jones.

It's gotta be the gangster from Westlynn...

Anyone else would need time to prepare, the champ would need time to prepare...

Chael probably has an easy 15 lbs cut, won't be too drawn out, its in Vegas, which has always been favorable, and is 6:1 instead of 4:1.

Chael and Hendo are both wrestlers, which don't change Jones gameplan, where a Machida step-in would mess with your training camp.

Also Jones would agree to Chael cuz of the twitter hate and the $$$$$$$. Chael will bring in $$$ ppv buys.
