Everyone is hating on Jones.

Why is no one hating on Machida for refusing to fight Jones at 151, and now refusing to fight him at 152?

Machida is not a champion. Machida does kind of have a history of not taking short notice fights. Rashad and Jones and I feel like one more but can't remember.

Because he is just coming off a fight and hasnt had a training camp. Others would of taken the fight but you cant really get on him for not.

Jones was always booked to fight on this card, he was offered a fight many are saying would be an easy win. Machida was offered a monster on 8 days notice without a training camp. I dont even expect many LHW's to be in shape enough to even make the weight in 8 days.

Here is the easy answer:

Machida wasn't originally scheduled to fight on 151, Jones was. Jones passed on both fights which would have kept 151 on schedule. Jones has a full camp behind him, Machida did not. Chael did not either, but because he was no where near a title shot, he took the offer. Unlike Chael, Machida is in line for a title shot in the near future. He has no reason to take a fight on short notice. And that is the difference.

This still doesn't make a whole lot of sense to me. Why the heck is Belfort relevant in the LHW division? Surely there was someone at 205 that could've taken the fight on 4-5 weeks notice. But, Belfort why?

I don't get why he's going to fight Belfort at 152 but he wouldn't fight Sonnen at 151. Is he really that scared about not training for a certain opponent?

Jon Jones isn't scared of Sonnen... he just doesn't want to support Sonnen getting yet another title fight just because he's running hid mouth.


Sonnen hasn't even fought at 205 yet... how can he get a title shot in that division???

I honestly thought when reading 'Belfort' on Bloodyelbow.com that the writer had had a brain fart and typed it rather than someone that actually makes sense.

This is...I really don't get it. Worst days for the UFC in years. This has been handled abysmally.

I can't really see why Vitor gets a title fight started 205lb when he's now a 185'er....
