I just read that Jones is opening up as a +1500 favorite. I mean I know He's a beast but +1500....that's got to be one of the bigger lines I've ever seen.

Through all this, I'm still backing Jon's (and Greg's) decision not to fight. Not thrilled about the Vitor fight, but it should be entertaining while it lasts.

What you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard.

I award you no props, and may the mods have mercy on your soul.

-1500. If he was plus, we're all getting rich.

Wow just wow zuffa, this is what happens when you put out such crap cards and try to have one fight carry an entire card. Guess what happens, it gets cancelled because even the co-main event can't carry the weight of the PPV. I mean wtf, the best they can come up with on 8 days notice was a MW who lost his lone UFC LHW fight against Sobral (Chael Sonnen). The blame is fully on the zuffa boys here for not having a back up plan but I guess I also am a little mad Jones wouldn't take an easy fight to save an entire card and make sure the other fighters get to fight and get paid as well. Oh well, here's hoping Vitor makes a little history and gets his mojo back for a big KO.

Machida said he would have accepted the Jones fight at 153.

Which I don't see why that can't be a possibility instead of just randomly throwing Vitor in there because he accepted the fight at 152 and making Jones fight at 152 w/o having a set opponent.

Jones vs Machida at 153, along with Aldo so two title fights

And UFC 152 can do w/o Jones. It's got a title fight and Stann/Bisping.

I'm curious if any other Jackson's fighters were on the card. Does anyone know if Jones screwed anyone in his own camp?

Henry Martinez for sure. Not sure if there were any others.

Kyle Noke as well

Yeah that's a pretty big screw up on my part. Thanks for catching it. I'd be taking out a second mortgage to bet that one.
