So... Gustafsson, Shogun, Vera... Hell, even make Chael @ 152... None of those fights could be made? Da ****? Belfort hasn't fought at LHW in 5 years..

Jones won't fight Sonnen because he's a MW, but he'll fight Vitor?

Yeah, I'm going to sleep.

Shogun is medically suspended still. I am no longer a Jones fan. Jones had a full training camp, he was healthy so there should be no excuses. Leben fought back to back & this guy can't fight chael on short notice?

Eh, I'm actually kind of happy about this. Vitor has a good chance of putting Jones to sleep and teaching him a damn lesson. Good luck to Vitor.

Chael hasn't fought in seven, Belfort was also a champion.

Night. I think it's a great night to be a Jones guy takes two fights on short notice against Machida and Belfort. That's my champion.

Taking a fight on 4-5 weeks notice after you just finished a full training camp is not "taking a fight on short notice".

Actually this would be the second time Machida turned down the rematch.

They asked him to take hendo's place before Sonnen tried to talk his way in.

I have to say, out of all these fights that we could have seen... this is the order I would put them in of interest to me, from most interested, to the least:
Jones Vs. Sonnen
Jones Vs. Machida
Jones Vs. Shogun
Jones Vs. Belfort

I dont mind this to much, at least Jones is fighting someone new, i really didnt care to see him take out Machida or Rua again.
