Thats the first time I have ever heard of that happening.

Jones shifted to the UFC 152 card after Dan Henderson pulled out of this weekend's canceled UFC 151 event. That set off a chain reaction in which Chael Sonnen was tapped a replacement, though Jones turned down the fight. Jones then was slated to fight Lyoto Machida at UFC 152, but Machida then turned down the fight. That opened the door for middleweight fighter Belfort, who hasn't fought at light heavyweight in five years, to step up for a surprise title shot in his former weight class.

Yea I can see why JJ didn't take the fight with Chael but at the same time I am surprised he didn't. I mean he thinks he's the GOAT already so he should welcome any challenge especially with so much on the line.

You can thank Jones for that, he turned down a fight with sonnen and machida claims he turned him down too.

If the card had any depth they wouldn't have had to canceled it.
