I couldn't agree more. They really need to stop, take a breather, and look at what they are doing. This fight makes absolutely no sense at all. Pretty much anyone in the LHW division would make a lot more sense than belfort.

I'm really not sure what to make of this. They seem to be absolutely panicking and making some really terrible decisions.

Funny when the tables are turned. Seriously though, totally surprised that Lyoto and Shogun turned down the fight, but I don't know if Shogun is still recovering after that 4 round war with Vera. While I may go in against JBJ without a full training camp, I certainly wouldn't if I was still healing.
Based on the negative rep it is clear to me that everyone has apparently lost their sense of humor and cannot detect sarcasm.

The odd part about it for me is how Jones was bitching about PPV buys off Machida.

Does he think Belfort will get him more buys? Did he not think Sonnen on 8 days notice wouldn't do more buys than anyone of the other 205er would?

Jones seems to flip flop a lot. A few days ago it was all about PPV buys. Now it isn't...

It doesn't seem like they have from Dana's "we know what the **** we're doin' next week, and next month" comment.

Well to be fair DW made it very clear at the conference call that JBJ can't decline his next opponent if he gave him more time.

Yeah, Dana basically said he would fire Jones if he denied anyone else. Ariel was trying to get him to say those exact words because he was strongly hinting at it, but Dana was fuming and said "You know what I mean. Don't ask stupid questions."

Hilarious when you think about it.

Just odd. If numbers were so important to him. If money was what he was after. Why not take the Sonnen fight? That would be the most numbers he could get at 205. Makes little sense to complain about numbers and then decline a fight that would do the most..

He must be that afraid to lose that he would sacrifice money...which is everything to him supposedly.

The whole thing was hilarious, Dana eventually lost it when he started ranting about Jackson.

Man, this snowballed pretty quickly. I think I'm with the majority who said WTF to Vitor being Jones' next opponent... Next Bones will defend his title against the legend Royce Gracie and then maybe give Matt Hughes that high profile retirement fight he's been wanting. Really any hero of the sport will suffice, so long as they're undersized and close to hanging it up. They could just have Bones run through the entire HOF for that matter...

Why couldn't they use Sonnen on 152? Instead of bringing Belfort into the mess?
