then its Bader, Rua, Jackson & Machida all in 2011 & in an 11 month span
Machida era ended after that first shogun fight. Either give the fans Silva vs Jones or Silva vs GSP.
What happened to Rashad fighting?
Hand/wrist not heeling as fast as they thought
But I think Rashad got fucked, just hold off the fight a few months. Bones already fought 3x this year
Bones is a beast
I don't have a clue what was said in the OP, but this.
Enough of this "overrated" nonsense.
I yet to see anybody mention Jones was "overrated" since he beat Rampage - if anything the exact opposite
The dude is one bad ass motherfucker. I hope he keeps up his reign of terror in the octagon.
Bones is a terror, I just dont get why they couldnt wait a few months?
Its not like they announced 140 & it went on sale
Rashad must be pissed
Now Jones might get injured in the Machida fight & have a layoff & Rashad will have to fight again & risk his shot
Evans is a whiny cunt. That is all.
surprising, I thought he would go off
I think Bones would beat Rashad, but I still think Bones ducked him with that fake hand injury so Rashad wouldn't be as recently familiar with his training.
I dunno. I would hope that the UFC would look into injuries to champs or have them see the company doctors for second opinions.
What happened was, he couldn't fight Rashad bec he elected for surgery which would put him out until 2012 & once Rashad had another fight signed Jones said he would go without surgery & was ready in Sept
If anything, I'm happy he is fighting for the 4th time. Lately, most of the UFC champs have been fighting twice a year.
He really is. About a week ago he was talking crap about Jones "faking" an injury so he wouldn't fight him, yet Jones will fight in Dec and Rashad is the injured one. If were to use his logic, Rashad is ducking Jones.
But they did. In fact, the UFC doctors were the reason why Jones said he needed surgery. Once this was out, Evans decided to fight Davis (who was later replaced by Tito) instead. The week of the surgery Jones decided to get one last opinion and found out that surgery wasn't required. That's when the UFC schedule Jones vs Rampage.
So while everyone gets on Jones for faking an injury and blah blah, it was the UFC doctors who messed up. For some reason fans like to ignore that fact.
I hear you but holding Jones a few more months shouldn't be an issue
Rashad was screwed here
A "conspiracy" floating around is Jones vs Rashad as the TUF coaches in 2012
If true maybe that is why Rashad is OK with the decision
That would make for a great kick off on Fox.
It makes some sense
Most of these "conspiracy's" I dont buy but I do the Overreem one
Oh yeah, Rashad can't catch a break, no matter the decision he makes, he ends up getting screwed.
On the bright side, by the time he's healthy, Machida should be ready to go :icon_mrgr
I read that rumor before the Machida fight was announced. I don't think its true anymore, unless the UFC and Jones are counting on Jones to beat Machida. If that's the case, that's pretty ballsy.
Even if Machida pulls off the HUGE upset (;0) they can still do Rashad & Jones on TUF
I can see Rashad telling Dana he needs another 2 months to heel & Dana saying he wants Jones in Dec but will give Rashad the TUF spot & x amt of $$$ to not bitch
I don't think they are faking anything, just Dana appeasing Rashad possibly
Agreed.... and I hate Rashad.
Something tells me they are doing this to build up the tension between Jones and Rashad, though (assuming Jones beats Lyoto).
Actually, I didn't know one way or the other, I was figuring it would spark more conversation. It's a conspiracy MAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAN
