Oh Jon Jones.... After Dan Henderson was forced to pull out of UFC 151's main event against Jones with a torn MCL, Jones was given a replacement bout against former UFC middleweight contender and trash talking champion Chael Sonnen. Jones declined the fight, causing UFC 151 to be canceled. I feel like once this guy won the Light Heavyweight Championship, he changed. He went from being a man on a mission, to being a soft, play it safe, bitch. So because of this selfish act, the UFC fans will miss out on an event that features a title fight, and the fighters on the undercard will miss out on a paycheck. Sonnen had some choice words for Jones, tweeting "I KNOW you will never fight me. Don't be afraid. but I'll always be the monster in the closet of your mind, little JJ". Sonnen also offered his purse to Jones if he took the fight. Jones will now face Lyoto 'The Dragon' Machida on September 22nd.
UPDATE: Lyoto Machida has declined the offer, and the number one contendership has now been handed to another Brazilian fighter. Vitor Belfort fluctuates his weight more than a 15 year old self concious fat girl, but he is still a formidable opponent at either weight class.
