Because bigger fighters don't generally call out smaller fighters from smaller divisions.
Condit is as tall as Anderson and Edgar dropped down straight for Aldo's belt. You make the weight, you are in. That is the only black and white rule that ever was.
Jones would fight Silva if the UFC wanted him to...
Enough with this pathetic trolling nonsense. UFC officially WANTED Jones full camp to fight someone Anderson had beaten twice already, an over the hill underframed185 counting with one old M.O. and one M.O. only (a M.O. that composes just one part of the 205 champion arsenal and which himself masters like no one in the octagon), coming from a loss and little time to prepare, someone everybody knew had virtually no chance of even scratching Jones and what the mighty "GOAT to be" did? He DUCKED. He officially DUCKED. Plain and simple. And with this attitude, he was responsible for an entire event to be cancelled for the first time in UFC history. That surpasses Abu Dhabi by three Milky Ways spans at least.
There is historical UFC daylight bright evidence Jones ducked someone in UFC and you and your brave face come here with your selective memory rants insinuating Anderson would duck Jones if the UFC really wanted them to fight. Cool story.
End of my own rant.
