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

See your focusing on the first part but it's the second part that's important

For 12 hours the UFC sold tickets for an event with someone who they didn't have under contract for said event in the main event. Sounds like they didn't even talk with Machida for this fight and the whole thing went through Sores. The issue is and their are a few but one of the big ones is did they defraud the customers who thought they were buying a ticket for Jones/Machida. Was the action of not clearing the fight with Machida a violation of good faith and therefore an act of fraud. The fight was never signed but it was sold...what does this mean. Very exciting times indeed.

Its crazy how obsessed you are by trying to be right about ANYTHING at this point that you are willing to argue anything. And the sad part is you are always wrong.


The UFC thought they were going to have Machida vs Jones because of what Soares (Machidas manager) told them. Then Machida told them that he isnt accepting the fight. Did the UFC jump the gun??? Yeah maybe. Did they do anything illegal. No.. (Well maybe, i dont know enough about the law to say one way or another.. but who cares. You are just skipping points again as you ALWAYS do).

They were just attempting to get this mess under control.

But your original assumption that tickets for the event went available because their fight was booked is wrong. Tickets for 152 have been available for a while now.
Dana said that Machida "Turned down the fight". That means he was offered it and turned it down. If he signed to fight Jones then he cant turn it down anymore... he can only back out.

I cant look at the monitor anymore.. my eyes are starting to hurt. But this response i already wrote is more then enough of a response to your beef. You change your problem every post you make. Its been making me laugh out loud at this point.

Anderson Silva was close to saving UFC 151.

According to UFC president Dana White, Silva, the middleweight champion, personally called him just moments after he announced on Thursday that UFC 151 was canceled after Jon Jones turned down a fight against Chael Sonnen. Silva, who admitted he wasn't in the best shape, volunteered to fight on eight days' notice in Las Vegas against another light heavyweight fighter. Unfortunately, he was a few hours late as the promotion had already decided to scrap the event.

White said he never expected Silva to offer his services and appreciated the offer.
So much for your point that Anderson Silva also turns down fights. "Through his actions" was it??

Oh you mean his actions of fighting at LHW instead of facing Chris Wiedman (who is ready to fight) for the title. Seems like they could have switched the LHW title fight for the MW title fight and both guys would be on an even playing field. Maybe he wanted to fight Elliot Marshall or Brandon Vera.

I thought champions were different.

Also like Machida he's not fighting and I think he's still going to take a long break. But the talking is great love the talking more talking the better.

I don't like JBJ or Chael but for Jones to turn the fight down with 8 days notice while he has a full training camp behind him and chael had 8 days he still turn him down..... haha.

I can see why Lyoto turned it down, short notice and he knows that he fought and got beat again its unlikely he will get a 3rd shot at JBJ.

As for Vitor i very strange one but i like it, I really hope Vitor catches him he did Wanderlei Silva and smashes his face.

Thanks for posting more stuff that makes absolutely no sense.

Show me 1 LINK where Dana White offered Anderson the fight with Weidman.?? EXACTLY.

And Anderson is asking for TOUGHER fights. So common sense tells you that he isnt avoiding Weidman. Truth is Weidman hasnt done enough for Anderson to be calling him out. But i can still guarantee that Anderson would accept that fight if it was offered.

Not really, You don't know how much thought he put into that tweet before he hit the post button.
All it proves is that over two years of new life experiences a young mans opinions can and often do change, go figure.
Considering time factors as the challenger is different than doing so as the champion in that scenario.

If it was an easier lighter opponent then definitely. Mayweather would probably just ask for a bigger paycheck lol. Which is a reasonable thing to do tbh.
Floyd doesn't have to ask, he is his own promoter.

This is the LHW Champ guys.
Thank you for reminding us.
What would this place be without you spreading your knowledge upon us, the tiny mortals?!

And don't worry...

I am still Jones' fan.
