Want to hear what you guys think about the news of him turning down the fight with Sonnen after Hendo got injured. I think he punked out personally and he also needs a better PR rep because he has been shooting himself in the foot the last couple weeks.
Says he doesnt want to fight Machida again because he doesnt have enough PPV pull then turns down Sonnen even though that fight would have made him almost more than him fighting Hendo or Machida combined. Says Sonnen isnt worthy of the fight then agrees to fight Vitor Belfort who has been fighting in the MW div. for the last 3 years. recent win coming from Akiyama. Dont understand how all of a sudden Belfort is worthy of the fight but whatever.
Then goes on Twitter and first says that its all about the money for him not making one mention of the fans of his (whatever fans he has left) then takes almost 2 days to apologize to his fans.
This dude is a phony and a punk IMO. A champion should be ready to fight anyone at anytime. And a fight with Sonnen would have been the easiest money he would have made in the Octagon so far.
I am really hoping that somehow Vitor can knock this kids head off and take him down a couple of pegs because this kid is truly forgetting how he origionally got his shot at the title. Kid was still one, maybe two fights away from a title shot and was "gifted" a shot when Rashad got injured. If that would have never happened who knows, maybe rashad beats Shogun. Maybe Rashad and Jones never split up as friends and Rashad never leaves the Jackson camp then the two dont fight for at least another year or two down the line because "I cant fight my friend".
I dont know I kinda want to hear what some of my fellow "MMA buckeyes" have to say about all this craziness.
