This is BS.

Rashad gets bypassed twice for a title shot. This is blatant hate coming from Dana.

Rashad is still recovering frm injury and couldn't make that date..

He will get the next shot early 2012

Machida has only 1 fight this year he needed another fight...

4 fights in a year for bones whats not to like?

Fans have been *****ing about Machida being left on the shelf.. i guess Dana really does listen..

Wasn't 140 Main event going to be Mir/Nog? this is a big upgrade .. still Jones will win an easy dec i think... or Machida comes in sloopy like Shogun 2 and gets koed.

Damn if Jones takes out Machida that means he has taken out arguably the top 3 out of 4 lhw in the space of a year. 2 of which are probable n1 and 2 lhw ATGs.

Good now the karate kids can stop complaining that Machida deserved the shot more than Rashad. Once he gets pounded we can go back to serious business.

Yeah I'm not mad about this if Rashad is still hurt. If Jones buzzsaws Machida it will finally shut up the Machida fan's who have been complaining.

It's very good timing for Machida really.. with Hendo/Shogun already signed..

Not that i believe Shogun deserves a shot after the whopping and only beating Griffin.

Evans has bolts in his hand and is injured so please no.. screwing Rashad business please..

Machida is very lucky tho.. he is 2-2 his last 4.. In reality he lost too Shogun twice.. so that's 1-3.. lucky that most LHW are busy or injured he is not really deserving.

I don't know the situation with Rashad's injury, anyone have any info on that? How long is he expected to be out for?

dana white should be ashamed first he makes cung le vs an ancient wanderlei silva who is coming off a 27 second loss against chris leben who white should have matched with in the first place, and now he pulls this **** again? wtf is he doing thats the second time rashad has been turned down from a fight with jones i was looking forward to watching since watching UFC 135 event was great IMO, machida is really unpredictable and hard to pin tbh but maybe its a way for dana to build up a fight between jones and rashad for the future

I'm confused yu know, Why did Rashad jump on the mic at 135 saying he can't wait to fight Jones n dat then?
All i've heard from MMA news and MMA Live is that this fight is the next LHW title fight........

2 of which are probable n1 and 2 lhw ATGs.

Wanderlei and Shogun are 1 and 2 (in either order), imho. Just to note.

What the **** are you crying about? Rashad has a broken hand, what should Jon Jones do wait? Machida has a better chance anyway. Not to mention Machida still owns Rashad's ass hole.

i guess if jones beat rashad (coming off injury), then again he won't get the credit like his victory with shogun.

Rashad himself said he understands why this fight is happening and has no problem with it.

He'll get another shot at the title, but it seems like he's cursed. Either he or the champion, whoever it is at the moment always end up getting injured.

I'd Jones way more credit for beating Rashad coming back from an injury than I did when he beat Shogun.

Rashad doesn't have a history of looking like **** when he comes back from surgeries/injuries, like Shogun does.

Whatever the reason, i think they needed to wait for Rashad.. Machida has only fought and beat old ass Couture... Rashad broken hand or not would be ready early 2012, Jones has fought 3 times a 4th fight is begging for injury against a guy whose only offense will be kicks... Jones should win easily but MMA so damn unpredictable,,, they are trying to keep a buzz, they experience mega numbers with Brock around, who they dont have right now, thus, Jones is obviously making bigger numbers then anyone else right now even Silva...

Why else sign with FOX to air FREE MEGA EVENTS,,, because boxing numbers even though not marketed as much are just as or bigger then MMA's.... The think FOX will enhance there PPV revenues by more then 25%
