@lorenzofertitta tells me Shogun Rua also turned down shot at Jones to set up Belfort as Sept. 22 opponent. ... Fertitta says, "Thank god Belfort is from the same generation as LIDDELL, Hughes, etc. REAL fighter!"
He got that right! Why in the world would the guys who were competingfor the next title shot and then both got offered it turn it down.
Even before this my respect for Jones had gone to 0.
