saw this on mmafighting.
Oh Booohooo Lyoto turned a fight down with A MONTH notice, Shogun turned a fight down with a MONTH notice….and who knows how many fighters turned down a fight w/JBJ before Sonnen agreed. ladeeda.

I’ll give it to Chael, he’s one crazy bastard tho. But obviously he’s got alot more to gain and JBJ had everything to lose. Didn’t make sense.

As little as i think of JJ right now for cancelling an entire card and not stepping up against Chael, i sympathize with JJ more than Lyoto and Shogun. Both of those guys just came off of successful training camps, with the momentum of a win and still a month to train. Losers. I hope Dana never gives either a title shot again.

YOU DON’T NEED TO ORDER THIS FIGHT:

Here’s what will happen:

1. Either Vitor will get close to JBJ’s chin, and if he does Vitor wins.
2. Either Vitor will stuff the take down or lose.
3. JBJ will kick from a distance, jab, and run until tiring Vitor and he will submit him like Rampage.

If Vitor has sense he’s working on closing the distance and stuffing take downs

Not saying this is true, but I wonder if they’re all too scared to take the fight because they’re cycling some PED’s and scared they’ll get caught. I really don’t think this is the case, but just something to consider.
Shogun and Machida did both just fought and might be injured or took it too easy after the fight as well. Who knows, could be many other reasons.
Too bad it wasn’t Jones vs Anderson. THAT would have been a pleasant surprise. And can you imagine if it was Chael…and he actually won? HA.

Either way, 151 is gone…. disappointing.

Shogun is a chump and wont fight anyone no more, ” i want Vera ” and even Vera nearly caused an upset..

I dont blame Machida, he wants to be ready and 100% prepared for Jones.

Shogun a Chump!! give me a break….Shogun is a killer….humble guy and a brave and dangerous fighter.. Beat Machida TWice! he lost to a much bigger guy in JBJ and was just back from another knee op (3 in tot now)….give credit where credit is due!!!

psxdogg Says, in 8-24-2012 at 11:24:12 from 70.239.215.175    

Nobody is scared. Shogun and Machida just got done fighting, and if I was them, I would turn down the fight too just to have more time to practice.

I want machida to have more training time so he can kick his ass!!

It’s called using your head you dumbasses. Fighting for the sake of just fighting is just stupid. At this level You fight to win… well trained with a good strategy gives you better chances at defeating the champ.

If you guys can’t see that, you’re just idiots. Dana cares about his business/ Jackson cares about his fighter…

ultimate fighter Says, in 8-24-2012 at 13:04:12 from 2.217.80.170    

how does this fight make any sense at all…. would love it if vitor actually stood a chance,
but look at what anthony johnson did to him on the ground before the referee (unfairly) stood them up,

What would be exciting is frankie edgar vs jones, cant beat that speed

ultimate fighter Says, in 8-24-2012 at 13:06:47 from 2.217.80.170    

frankie dances around for 4 rounds landing leg punches and than jones out of frustation lands a spinning elbow on his own face, and knocks himself out

Jones lost more than people know, by turning down that fight, and Ruining the 151 Card, he just put himself in the bad books of Zuffa, they will cut him the first chance they get. Regardless if he is the Best in the world. He burned the only bridge in the Game. Plus JBJ is a Cop wanna be Snitch, I hope he suffers from severe stomach pains for the rest of his Parasitic ass life. I hope he breaks his twiggy legs walking on the treadmill.

How the hell are people giving Shogun crap.
IT SHOULD BE NOTED THAT SHOGUN IS ON MEDICAL SUSPENSION FOR 45 DAYS!!!

Suspension ends – Sept 19th
UFC 152 – Sept 22nd.

He literall can’t step inside a gym until the fight starts. You Shogun haters have gone full retard. Shogun probably wouldn’t even make weight…

I don’t blame Shogun or Machida, we all now that Machida needs more time to set up his game plan. the only punk I blame is Jones scared ass bones

JBJ lost a TON of endorsements. I know he got Nike, but now other big names will automatically shy away.

REALLLY STUPID MOVE.

Totally irrelevant fight. Seriously, Vitor is not relevant at all. Who will really pay to watch this? The only people who want to see this fight are Vitor fans from back in the day.

Ruddo293 Says, in 8-24-2012 at 21:39:56 from 138.163.128.42    

Jones had a entire training camp to prepare for Henderson. Greg jackson felt 8 days was too short of a notice for Jones to take on a guy as dangerous as sonnen. They trained for Henderson not for a guy at Chael’s caliber so they aren’t ready. In other words, henderson was a easy fight for jones, but they never expected to get into a real fight so he didnt have to train as hard

really?? Says, in 8-24-2012 at 22:14:53 from 76.17.233.156    

I dont think a lot of ppl are gna pay to watch vitor get his ass handed to him again… and how can any of you “not blame” Machida or Shogun but blame jones? Hendo and Chael are two different fighters. thats a COMPLETE game plan change! so jones is supposed to just say ok? yea that woulda been “the champion thing to do” but lets be real! Dana’s the B**** of the equation. if you got “so many guys willing to step up” you coulda found a new main event, then aired it for free because it wasnt the main event everyone wanted. or even pay per viewed it still if it was marketable enough. he coulda did somethin to make it work. instead he cancelled to make jones/nelson look like an event killer so he’d lose fans, sponsors, whatever. all because jones “messed up his money”.

@joedog it make me laugh when people call Mousasi Armanian. the guy’s parents immigrated to Iran in the 70′s and he was born in Iran, how is he Armenanian?

Drew Says, in 8-25-2012 at 01:53:04 from 50.70.46.5    

Wasn’t Shogun on medical suspension anyway? The guy recently came off a war. I can understand him turning down the fight. Machida? Come on, man, take the opportunity when it presents itself.

I don’t think there’s anything that will make sense for me with Jones turning down a short notice fight. It’s not as if he wasn’t training, couldn’t make the weight, wasn’t in shape, etc. He was already good to go. And I would think after a long camp of preparation, you are almost ready to fight anyone. This after Jones declared to Sonnen “I’m more than you’ll ever be” (“except I’m afraid to fight you on short notice”).

Wow if ppl are hating on JBJ for turning down a fight on 8 days notice, You better damn well hate Machida and Shogun for being cowards and not taking a fight on 30 days notice!!! I know they’re scared cuz JBJ wrecked them both like they’re some mid tier Hilll billy town casino fighters, but still. Supposedly they want the belt back? HAHA lil fairys declined to fight though, too funny!!!

why you guys hating on vitor, the guy has won all of his fight by knock out except for the silva fight since he came back and now he is not a good match for jones, i think he is the better match, quick hands and slippery. trust me no one has tested jones chin and vitor is the guy to do it, dont be surprised if we see an upset here. war vitor!!
