Wow! Only a handful of real fighters willing to do the deed!
Anderson vs Bonnar
Anderson vs Cyrile
Anderson vs Ryan Jimmo (lolz)
Anderson vs James Te Huna

Not many would be free to fight in eight days. But that's a crazy revelation. Remember he offered to fight James Irvin awhile back with ZERO upsides.

@lorenzofertitta tells me Shogun Rua also turned down shot at Jones to set up Belfort as Sept. 22 opponent. (probably medical suspension still)

Fertitta says, "Thank god Belfort is from the same generation as LIDDELL, Hughes, etc. REAL fighter!"

Marcus Aurelius: Tell me again, Maximus, why are we here?
Maximus: For the glory of the Empire, sire.

Baked, not fried... the healthy choice.

Silva just shit on Jones right now.

What I take away from Silva doing this is that he was basically scolding Jones. I can see Silva being a role model for Jones, with Silva offering to fight he's kind of saying to Jones "this is the attitude a real champion should have."

I like how he's ranting and raving but still uses the word 'unequivocally.'

Maybe Jones forgot how he scored his first title shot.

Could't they just rebook the fight? I'm sure they didn't get to cancel the whole thing in a few hours.

No, they don't know how long Dan Henderson is out for.

Silva, who admitted he wasn't in the best shape, volunteered to fight on eight days' notice in Las Vegas against another light heavyweight fighter. Unfortunately, he was a few hours late as the promotion had already decided to scrap the event
I meant this. I mean, surely they could've put the card back together just like that.
