Why is no one talking about Stephan Bonnar? He's really the only one to put Jones in trouble even though it was really early in his career. He was able to tag him often. Plus he's being doing really good recently. I'd like to see that fight....

As for Machida he has a title shot on lock, no point wasting it when it will be there. He already took a title fight on short notice and lost, so he has all the time in the world to prepare.
This is the answer to the question that keeps being asked.
I also think the UFC has bigger plans for Gus. and Wiedman.

I'm hearing a rumour that Jones won't be allowed into Canada because of his DUI charge?

Machida and Shogun are right to decline, they are fresh off fights and Shogun in particular is already preparing for his next bout, still under suspension.

Why should they bail Jones out? Jones had an opponent ready to go in Sonnen, he pussied out. No matter who he fought, he was going to be way more prepared.

Gustaf should have been first stop IMO, young gun on a streak, just like Jones was when he got his shot. Gustaf hasn't been mentioned at all though, looks like they did not ask him.

Don't diss other fighters for declining though, everything Jones does is disrespect. 'It's risky to fight Sonnen on 8 days notice, but I might consider fighting you or you.'

Get out you prick.

Ariel is Canadian and says it won't be an issue. Canada has a history of turning people away with criminal charges, but those are typically violence and drug selling related.

I totally agree. The whole time I was wondering if anyone called him. Maybe he is in Euro and it would be even more difficult for him to make weight as well as get there on time?

I have not seen anywhere where Bones has said if Machida or Shogun was offered he would have accepted. The only thing I have seen is that Greg Jackson would have no problem with JBJ taking a fight against anyone at UFC 152, including Sonnen, because then there would at least be a couple weeks to prepare.

You know what as absurd as it is that everyone turned this fight down the truth is that this fight kinda excites me more. I mean we have seen Machida get beat and we saw Shogun get beat. Honestly I don't see either guy putting up more of a fight in a rematch. I think Vitor's speed even his declined speed at his age makes this fight more interesting than one of those rematches. How scary is it though that Jones has almost cleaned out LHW to the point the top fighters don't want to fight him.

On a side note about how sad it is Machida and Shogun turned down Jones and that Jones turned down Sonnen, I would like to mention that I am about 99% sure that if the UFC had phoned BJ Penn despite being a LW and arguably a FW the guy would have accepted either fight and instantly begun jamming cheeseburgers down his throat to make weight.

After all of this shit, atleast 151 will end up being an awesome card.

The cherry on top of the cake if the Phenom can clean Jonny's clock.

Stann V Bisping will be fireworks and anybody that isn't interested in Benavidez V Mighty Mouse should be ashamed to call themselves a "hardcore" fan. It has FOTY written all over it.
