Uh yeah what do you think that quote proves??

Has Machida publicly been hounding Dana for the title shot??? Yes he has. Go look it up if you dont believe my word.

Was ED SOARES able to set up a fight without Machidas approval??? No no he was not.

Anything else you want to leave on the internet??

You are probably the sorest loser i have ever seen. So much so that you are staying up trying to find a slight glint of light where you can say you were correct about this small thing but the sad thing you cant find it and are stuck doing this to yourself.

And Jones actually refused to fight Machida on September 1st also.

He REFUSED to fight on the date he was supposed to fight because Henderson injured himself and he was getting a NEW opponent. That is the first time in the UFC that has happened.
Machida refused to fight three weeks later, when he got the news which he didn't accept for the Sept 1st fight because Dana couldn't reach him. The UFC offered him a fight with a guy who didn't agree to fight for the title in the first place. None of this matters to you but I find it awesome and hilarious.

The UFC just throwing title fights around to guys without even talking to them and then cancelling shows is just well...cool this just keeps getting more twisted and better.

Jones is the first LHW champion to refuse one title fight and then accept two more in 24 hours.

Why would anyone hold anyone else to a tweet from two years ago.

Its twitter not a court deposition, people post things that feel right at the time they post it.

Jon Jones refused to fight Chael and Machida on September 1st before he even knew that Machida was going to not accept.

You do realize that Machida was never scheduled to fight Sept 1st or Sept 22nd??? He isnt backing out of a scheduled date. Machida hasnt been training 90 days to fight at Sept 22nd and is now backing out of the fight. It in no way compares to the Jones situation.

Jones is the only Champion to back out of a fight after a full training camp because 8 days for a change of opponent is not enough.

btw
You do realize that Jon Jones isnt being asked to step in on 1 week or 3 weeks notice while sitting on the couch out of nowhere right??? He just finished a full training camp. He is just being asked to fight a different opponent.

It proves he was talking shite, when its to his advantage he will take the fight with Rua - when its to save a card grab some money and beat a blown up Middleweight he dont want anything to do with it.

Then why did they sell tickets for it for yesterday if the fight wasn't booked or scheduled?

The 1st fight was in 8 days. The other two fights are a month later then the time he was supposed 2 fight. Hes also already been through an entire training camp while Sonnen hadnt. Now Belfort will just have a month to train while jones has had a long ass while. Now he has an entire extra month. The only bad side for Jones is that he has to adjust a bit of his training for Belfort.

You will understand that when you read my other post.

BUT just in case.

http://www.ticketmaster.ca/event/100...minorcatid=830

When you are BUYING tickets you are buying tickets for UFC 152. Not Jones/Machida. Do you understand this concept??

And as Dana White said "Machida turned down the fight with Jones". You cant turn down a fight if you already signed to fight him. You can only back out of it at that point. You can only turn down something when it is being offered to you.
