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