sorry i havent been a part iof the thread guys, im in burkina faso lol yes, you read that right

i was sad to see frankie lose, well hear as i didnt see the fight. heres hoping he moves down to FW, i think he will dop very good there. i mean he fought at LW and never cut weight. ever. no weight cutting at all. so it should be an easy move where he will be big and strong, and still have the stamina to fighgt. plus lets face it, the division is not as deep, he coukld fight fopr a title soon

Jon "Bitch" Jones. Hendo hurt his knee, so he's out. Chael stepped up and Jones refused. UFC 151 CANCELLED!!! Thanks, "Bitch".

Greg Jackson, playing it uber-safe again. I think it's a seriously chickenshit move by Jones to back out of the fight. He claims he has only three days to prepare for Chael... bullllllshit. He's been training for someone who's arguably more dangerous than Chael, but won't fight a freakin' middleweight cuz he and Jackson can't come up with a "gameplan" on that short notice.

I understand preparing for your opponent and all, but come on... it's a friggin' fight. Chael would be a mega-underdog on the books and Jones stood to make a ton of money on this. Ridiculous.

Watched the first two episodes. Interesting behind the scenes stuff.

Pissing off Dana White like this (and all of the other fighters on that card) is probably the worst decision of his life.

Yep. This really blew up in his face. Dude always struck me as having the mentality of a child and this really proves it, I think.

Didn't hear the news? Hendo busted his knee, UFC docs said he couldn't compete, Dana White called up a bunch of people to try to fill Hendo's spot, everyone said no.... except Chael. And when Jones was offered Chael, he punked out.

Which is stupid cuz...

He just missed a huge payday
He killed a fight that had a major time allotment which probably made it impossible to fill the PPV, plus the main card is gone. Hard to have a fight when your main card is a championship fight
By way of dropping out and UFC essentially being forced to scrap the card, a ton of other fighters lost or got a delayed payday
Lots of fans lost money on flights, hotels, etc


And last, but certainly not least... he gave the biggest big mouth of them all, Chael Sonnen, TONS of ammo.

why cancel the event? why not put it on FX? and move someone else up as main event or pull someone from another even up? like the Pettis/Cerrone fight - i would watch that fight card for sure.. this fight card is pretty stacked and will have good fights for the fans..
i see JBJ's point but i also see the UFC's point... so who loses? UFC and the fans.. not JBJ (he still got the belt)...
Chris Weidmann also offered to fight him... Lyoto Machida turned down the fight and now Vitor is fighting him? another 185er... who's got a more punching power than Chael...

Well, seeing as the UFC is connected to casino owners, I'm sure betting is involved somehow. And with a huge fight like that gone, it probably screwed the bookies n' shit. I dunno.

Plus, I dunno if a network can shuffle their lineup at the last minute like that. I think the logistics get really boned when something like this happens.

Totally... he's probably spending his days writing one liners, getting ready for media questions and twitter wars.
