Belfort is so much more of a threat to Jones than Sonnen was too...

Belfort has the potential to come out and just K him TFO in like 20 seconds.

They canceled a whole even, now they schedule a new one, with the lamest Main event ever!

Vitor will get crushed its nonsense that he takes that call!
I feel bad for Gustafson, he should get on twitter and pitch a fit.

If i were to guess most of these guys likely are out of fight shape and 8 days is to little time to get into fight shape with this PR stuff. Also the champ is in fight shape, why gamble a title shot when you are not at your best, but the champ is?

I get the feeling Dana just assumed Machida would take the fight. I can see Jones just overwhelming Belfort, I hope im wrong though.

Ah, Jones will make quick work of him following the biggest boo parade we've heard in MMA.

I fancy Vitor to do better then Hendo and Sonnen... so, for me, not a bad fight.

Everybody knew Hendos only chance would be via an unlikely H-Bomb. Belfort has as much power and is quicker with far better combos. Only question mark is over Belforts TDD.

Either way, im interested at the very least.

I don't see how Gustafsson or Chris Wiedman where not asked to take the fight, IMO these are the two most relevant fighters, atleast Gustafsson who is even in the same division and is 14-1 on a 5 fight win streak.

I don't want to see anyone Jones has already destroyed, and Chael Sonnen lol man Dana can't be serious chosing that failed loser just because he's a company man.

Regarding Belfort, well the man has very little chance to win this, and he shouldn't be relevant to take this fight at all. I'm actually a little pissed that Gustafsson hasn't even been mentioned by the UFC.

Belfort is old, short and worse at everything than Jones except KO power & handspeed. So let's hope for that punch to land.


Anyway I guess we will just have to take what we get, so WAR BELFORT! plz plz plz just make this miracle happen.

Didn't Rumble take him down? The same man who can be seen after being late for 45 minutes and making weight last night:

While I agree with you, it's worth remembering that compared to Belfort, Hendo is older, shorter, slower, and 3 inches shorter reach.

I thought Hendo was a pathetic fight to begin with. Any of these alternatives excite me more.
