None of them are ready yet.
You want them to throw Davis or Gus into the lions den because there is nobody else? Thats crazy. Right now, they will both lose and leave the LHW division looking barren.
Is that a joke? You can't seriously be implying that Chael is even close to deserving of this shot. You can't seriously be implying that he isn't jumping over dozens of fighters to get this shot. There are fighters not even in the UFC that more of a claim to that title shot. Hell I would say Chris Weidman is more deserving of a shot at Bones along with a handful of other MWs. Brandon Vera is more deserving of a title shot. List fighters being screwed? A much shorter list would be listing the LHWs that are less deserving then Sonnen. Hell Rich Franklin is more deserving, I would be less upset if they gave BJ Penn the title shot.

Have you heard Chris Weidman say he wants a fight with Bones? Or Vera ask for another go? Or Franklin? How many of these "deserving" fighters have actually stepped forward and asked for the fight?

I'm all ears.

I can gaurentee you Weidman would accept a fight with Bones in a heartbeat. Do fighters really have to actually call out the champ in public? You really think there isn't a long line of LHW that would gladly accept a UFC title shot? We aren't talking about some short notice replacement this time around, we are talking about a fight that is 6 months away. I think you would be hard pressed to find a single LHW or ranked MW that would turn down that fight except for some teammate of Bones. You don't have to talk shit on twitter to want a shot at Bones. Most of these guys are true professionals. You shouldn't have to ASK for the fight. You EARN it. You are crazy if you think anyone is turning down a Bones fight with 6 months to train.

Henderson was supposed to be fighting for the title. The fact that he got injured and delayed it untill it was basically too late to get a replacement shouldn't knock him down one step. He should've still gotten the immediate shot right after Belfort. He obviously feels that he has been screwed over and he has every right to feel that way.

MMA fans have to be the most judgmental fans on earth.

I'm probably wrong though. I'm sure there is a long detailed story on how Hendo hates his fans.
It was actually an after party were he was the paid special guest. Big John was there as well cause his wife was the promoter and I will say that he is one of the nicest guys in the world and I have actually met him a couple of times at different events. It wasn't a big thing either the after party had like 50 people mostly fighters who fought on the card and there friends and such. It's not like he was talking to people either i talked to him In line at the bar.

So I'm supposed to go with something because you guarantee it? Chris would be a god damn fecking idiot to accept a fight with Bones. Why would somebody at the top of the MW tree do something as dumb as that?

As for the rest... yes, I believe the vast majority would refuse a fight with Bones. Machida said he would rather fight another fight. And even if Gus or Davis said yes, at this stage, they would lose. Whats the point of that?

No. I say give him a very easy fight to keep him busy and make him do TUF. Why not. Sonnen stands no chance. You know it. I know it. We all know it. So think of it as a novelty. We get to see Sonnen get smeared into paste. Whats not to like?

By the time its done, the rest of the division would have all fought at least one more fight and we'll have a much clearer picture of whats what. I really dont see whats so unreasonable about going down this route at all.

Why on Earth do you think these guys would turn down a shot at Bones? You can't use the short notice replacement offers as any kind of reference. This is a completely different situation. Shogun, Glover, Machida, Hendo all have said they would fight Jones. I think you are absolutely crazy to assume fighters would turn down this fight and it's insane to think that every fighter more deserving then Chael would turn down the fight. That's insane.
How you could possibly think that Bones fighting a non competitive matchup while the rest of the division "sorts itself out" is a good idea in any stretch of the imagination is just insane. I don't see yo9ur argument at all. You can't possibly think that at the VERY LEAST 20 fighters more deserving just got leap frogged by Sonnen's mouth.

I totally agree with him.

Guys, what has Chael done in the LHW division to earn such a thing? It's clear to all fighters now, that if you talk bullsh***t in the media, and jump up and down like a clown? You will get a title shot!!

Dana White is ruining the sport with these cards!!!
