How do you guys feel about what Jon Jones did? I'm on his side. It sucks for the other fighters on the card, but taking a different fight on short notice shouldn't be the requirement. It's easier for Chael Sonnen to do because it would be a title shot he wouldn't have gotten otherwise.

If Jon Jones doesn't feel like it's enough time to prepare, then so be it. He signed a contract to fight Dan Henderson, not Chael Sonnen.

The UFC gifted Jones a title fight in the past when Rashad Evans got injured. They didn't have to do that & this is how Jones repays them? JBJ is currently training, in great shape. Chael isn't near the shape JBJ is in & he's the one coming up in weight. Dana White pointed out that Henderson hits a lot harder than Chael meaning it could be an easier fight for Jones. I think he should've taken any fight the UFC put in front of him. He's the champion & his actions cause a whole card to be cancelled.
I do however look forward to him & Vitor locking up next month.

i think Belfort does not stand up to JJ. VB is too old and probably slower although i thought Dan Henderson fight was going to be a boring fight i was looking forward to seeing Chael and JJ. I just hope he does not start picking and dodging opponents like boxers JJ is starting to turn into a real Diva in the past year not as humble as he once was when he barley got the title.

It makes me laugh that people are upset with Jon Jones about this whole UFC 151 fiasco. People are mad at the wrong person.

Soooooo... who should people be mad at? I'm upset UFC even allowed JBJ the option to turn down the replacement fight. He works for the UFC, not the other way around. And yes Hendo knew he was hurt earlier than he led on but the fight was gonna get changed on way or the other.

Anderson Silva saves the day & steps up to face Stephan Bonnar in UFC 153 main event. Sure Bonnar doesn't deserve to be in the same building as Anderson but something had to happen & The Spider delivered. GSP & JBJ need to take notes. Not only is Anderson moving up for this fight, he's also taking the fight on short notice. And then when the guy had said he wasn't fighting anymore this year.

Finally, a new UFC is a couple of days away.

The only chance Vitor has is catching him in the very beginning of the fight. I think that's how he has won almost all of his big fights. I don't see Jon Jones getting caught, so Jones wins. I think he'll finish him in the 2nd round.

I think Bisping beats Stann. I was very impressed by Bisping against Sonnen. I even remember thinking that he won that fight. I think he'll pick Stann apart en route to a UD.

Nobody in the LHW division is beating Jones. Looking forward to seeing him fight at HW whenever they decide to make that move.

Wonder who's next for Jones...

Hendo? Sonnen (if he beats Griffin) ?

A lot of people hate Sonnen, but you can't deny his ability to sell a fight.

Dam Vitor had a good hold of Jones arm. JJ is a tough sob. Really wish Vitor would've let his hands go more.
Looks like Jones will be facing Henderson next. Jones needs to just move up to HW. He's too big for everyone else.

Top to bottom, HW is probably worse than LHW. But, it would be interesting to see Jones fight without a huge size advantage. I think Jones beats everybody at HW convincingly apart from JDS and Cain.

After the Hendo fight and maybe a Sonnen fight, I think he should start fighting there while waiting for Phil Davis and/or Alex Gustafsson to establish themselves.

Don't forget Alister & Cormier are at HW. Those two along with the two you mentioned would make great fights against Jones.
Wake me up after they wake up Hendo.

Once again, the prelims where better than the main card.
Henderson just manhandled Diaz.
I really don't like Rory McDonald.
