I suspect it depends on what you consider "turning down a fight."

Joe Silva doesn't ask "is there a day that would work well for you to fight so-and-so?"

He simply asks "Do you want to fight JDS on May 25th?"

Frequently, the fighters respond with "well I want to fight (insert opponent's name here) but not on (insert date here)".

That's turning down the fight...at least according to DW. The fight isn't on whatever day you want...it's on May 25th.

Lots of fighters though have a more liberal opinion about what constitutes "turning down a fight".

How does one go about dissing PRIDE... madness. Pride was the best, and always will be.

Back on topic, this fight better happen. Hunt is going to keep proving the haters wrong

If he really wants to wait I think he might get the crack at the winner of JDS vs Reem. Which is now officially moved instead of cancelled.

Give LL a break. For a forum to really work you have to have people with strong opinions. Not to mention he's trolling you hardcore making you think he hasn't watched any old fights.

Yeah, guys like LL are great for mad trolling but to say he hates Bendo, Silva, and Hunt is like saying he loves multiple peni ( plural) in or around his mouth and anus at all times. Which is perfectly fine. But hey let trolls be trolls.

I'm pretty sure this is what happened:

Joe: "Hey JDS, do you want to fight Mark Hunt instead?"
JDS: "Ummm, yeah... sure... but I just talked to Mark and he said he didn't want the fight. Trust me. I'm totally not ducking him or anything."
Joe: "Okay JDS, I'll take your word for it."

Dana announcement: "Mark Hunt doesn't want the fight with JDS."

JDS internal dialog: "Phew, lucky I got out of that one."

Sure. After all JDS is famous for ducking fights, right?

If people can accuse Anderson Silva of ducking fights, I reserve the right to make baseless and comical claims about JDS' manhood too. He ducked Hunt when he was champ, and was trying to do the same again here.
