Ok, that's fair enough, but from your post it sounded as if you implied that because Anderson front kicked Vitor in the face, then Jones would able to pull off the same feat, or some thing even more spectacular (standing).

To be fair it was BJ's brother who threw in the towel (Reagan I think) and as far as i'm aware that's out of BJ's control. From memory he didn't appear to be upset with their decision though.

If Machida declined wouldn't that mean the fight was never confirmed?

They wanted to be able to start advertising right when the fight is signed, not start creating posters right after. It makes sense.

Of course. My point is, they we're ready to go at an instant if the fight *was* confirmed.

EDIT
Like what the gentleman above me said.

For all we know they made Sonnen vs Bones posters as well.

But they announced the fight on facebook and published the poster. UFC was trying to back Machida into a corner like Jones but it didn't work.

Bones will feel Vitor out on his feet for a min. Once Vitor starts throwing bones will get it to the ground as quick as possible. Bones by tko or doctor stoppage from a cut rd 1. Mark my words. That being said I hope Vitor ko's that arrogant diva out.

If that's the case then you have a point.

If I remember correctly Dana White mentioned that he had talked to Machida's manager already. I would assume that the manager tentatively said yes and Machida said no. Really didnt make any sense for Machida to take a fight on short notice when he is already guaranteed a title shot.

Vitor is getting stomped but it'd be amazing if he blitzed Jones.
