    Twice in the past year.

    Before the Jones title shot and before the Gustafsson got his push.

    I just think he is just trolling.

    Davis will never be champ. He's just a grinder for the most part. I still don't understand how he got the nod over Machida either.

    With that said. He easily grinds Texeira to a UD. If he really must fight, I'd say what about Bader? I mean there's no available fight to build him up anyway. Or if Gus backs out with an injury, let him face Manuwa.

    Octagon and grappling control. Davis will be a perpetual top 5 and has shown the ability.

    I still don't understand how people think Gustafsson should have got the nod.

    Cause Machida wastes to much timebeing elusive and avoiding confrontation. He spends way to much time trying to seek out the perfect counter pucnh/kick that when it doesn't come he is essentially inactive in as far as match scoring goes.

    Agreed though Bader is about the best name he can call out at this point and that's what he should be doing,

    This is all Machida's fault.

    So has Jones ever pulled out of a fight? No? Okay good, im glad all of us outside of Phil Davis could figure that one out.

    What does UFC 151 have to do with Jones pulling out of a fight¿
    "If a man with no arms and a man with no legs started learning karate, the same light bulb would appear over every head in Japan. That’s right: Glue them together and see if it can kill a panda."

    He was offered several viable replacement opponents after Dan Henderson pulled out. Even after being told that the rest of the fighters on the card weren't getting paid, the card would be cancelled, and it was costing the company something ridiculous like 30 million dollars, he still opted to not compete on the card.

    Also, UFC 169, 170, and 171 say hello.
