    Honestly, I don't know who is worse...
    Lyoto, for being so wrapped up in himself...
    Or Jon for the same reason...Lmao
    (Lyoto turned down the Jon Jones fight scheduled for UFC 152...
    Dana will probably take away the #1 Contender status he once had :p
    )

    EITHER WAY, Canada is STILL getting another Jon Jones fight...
    He is taking on MMA Veteran

    [​IMG]
    Much like Henderson,
    Vitor Belfort is an MMA Veteran that has been around the sport for years.
    2007 is the last time Vitor competed at Light-Heavyweight,
    his last fight, winning the Cage Rage LHW Championship.






    Stuck around this long eh??
    IN OTHER NEWS

    [​IMG]
    Even middleweight Champ Anderson Silva reportedly tried to save UFC 151.
    (Dana White confirms he was called by Silva/and camp Thursday.)
    Anderson offered to bulk up, and face any LHW fighter the UFC offered,
    in order to fill the Main Event slot, throwing away his plans for Vacation.
    The card had already been cancelled though, (THANKS JONES),
    so the plans couldn't come to fruition.


    BIG SHAKE UP HERE,
    I don't get why Chael and Belfort are options for the Champ though,
    Heavyweight fights okay, but Middleweight fights?


    WHAT DO YOU GUYS THINK ABOUT ALL THIS????
    AT-LEAST JON BRINGS DRAMA TO THE UFC :p!!!!

    cool. gotta feel for ufc right now, they're in a tough spot.

    can't predict belfort as the winner too easily, but then again he ran away from lhw division a long time ago. props for him manning up and being a company man.

    also, the lyoto situation is a bit different. he's one fight removed from being figured out by jones already so obviously in this case the fighter really does need time to adjust. it wasn't like he was a bit off that night, he has habits to fix. he would almost 100% lose at this time and he knows this.

    i understand lyoto turning it down

    he got choked and slept by jones last time and he only fought a couple weeks ago

    but lyoto is more difficult than most people realise

    he's popular so we sympathise with his position rather than noticing that he's not a company man at all

    demanded anderson silva money to fight tito, turned down the rashad rematch... he's turned down other fights too i believe

    people seem to be siding with machida and turning on jones, which suits me down the the ground

    yeah, the machida-rashad rematch was a jonesesque dick move by lyoto for sure.

    this time was lyoto being just as cowardly as jones, but for good reason. jones would've killed chael even though it wouldn't have mattered for his legacy, but lyoto would've died.

    Lyoto was a bitch either way, but he showed his true colors ages ago so it wasn't too big of a surprise...BELFORT on the other-hand blew my mind...TRUE company man is right.

    i understand him turning down jones. u dont go from fighting recently to fighting the best in a weeks notice.

    belfort should be a good fight. i could go into the he doesn't deserve it defense but fuck it

    i forget exactly how it went, but something like this: before tito stepped up to fight rashad for the second time lyoto was called and agreed to do it. then all of a sudden he demanded more money to do so citing the paydays anderson silva makes.

    basically, tried to hold the company up.

    Machida thought 4 weeks was not enough time to train for Jon Jones.

    ^as if there couldn't be any more Drama, Lyoto offered the UFC a fight against Jones @ UFC 153 in Brazil.

    UFC opted to keep the Belfort fight.

    Vitor needs to stop including Jesus in everything.

    Jesus gave Jon Jones anaconda limbs and a shitty attitude to punish humanity.
