Jones vs Belfort Ufc 152 (Machida declines afterall)

WTF


"Aug 24, 2012 - Jon Jones will not be facing Lyoto Machida at UFC 152 after all.

Instead, Vitor Belfort will fight Jones for the UFC light heavyweight title on Sept. 22 in Toronto. UFC president Dana White confirmed the change late Thursday night.

According to White, Machida turned down the title shot on Thursday. Belfort volunteered to fight Jones on one month's notice and was granted the title shot by the promotion.
Belfort was originally scheduled to face Alan Belcher at UFC 153 in October. White said he hasn't decided who will fight Belcher instead."



Umm.. Chris Weidman...hello Chris Weidman, pick up tha phone!

I just dont know what to believe anymore. Heres one thing that I would love to see come of this... Chael Sonnen vs Lyoto Machida to see who gets the winner. Chael hates Lyoto, Jones, and Belfort. Pretty cool

Ariel Helwani broke the story on twitter, its probably on the Ufc Tonight show, don't get it in Canada.

Im surprised Chael didn't get it since he is in the 205lb division, unless Jones is really trying to avoid Chael.

Chael was just an emergency last ditch effort to save the 151 card. With the fight being moved 4-5 weeks from now, there is zero reason for Chael to be in this fight.

As for Lyoto, this makes sense for him to wait and have a full training camp. He is already in line to get a shot next, so him waiting shouldn't cause him to much time till he gets his shot. That is unless his situation turns out like Rashad's.

So pull Vitor Belfort from an Oct 13 fight against Belcher @ 185???

Either way will still be a good fight, Chael would be a better draw..
