If Jones fights Silva, it will be his 3rd consecutive fight against a middleweight.

If they're going to have a #1 contender fight between Gus & Machida, they need to do it soon so Jones isn't sitting for too long.

I don't think Jones can train with that injury for 3 months, so there's a bit of time. But the sooner the better, for sure.

Even before the injury I believe Jones stated he wanted to fight again sometime in November so if they did the fight in August(Fox Sports card?) that should give them enough turn around for a title fight in November.

So? He's beaten the best in his division too.

First of all, the LHW division has much more challengers than MW @ LHW, excluding Anderson. Second, the guy takes a ton of 'crap' for being bigger than everyone else, yet they keep feeding him undersized and unqualified opponents.

Ah, I forgot about the injury. Lots of time then.

Length really depends on if he gets an infection or not.

A cut during training has forced Costa Philippou out of his fight with Jacare, Chris Camozzi will replace him. So an already weak card becomes that much weaker.

I wonder how far the UFC can run with this in Brazil. The last Brazil card sucked and the next two don't look too great either.

Apparently this upcoming card was an instant sellout. I don't think the UFC is too concerned with selling the fights to Brazilians. Put a big name Brazilian or two on the card and it will sell.

Yup, this. The UFC is going to be in Brazil a ton going forward, the popularity there right now is extremely high.

Thiago Alves vs Matt Brown on the Fox Sports 1 card in August.

I really like this fight.

Photoshopped? That can't be the main event for their debut on Fox Sports 1.

I believe it was Chaels background pic on his Twitter account.. was up for a while but it's now changed and he's deleted all of his tweets about Wanderlei so that's odd.

A sonnen/wanderlai silva fight is silly and pointless, sonnen/vitor on the other hand would be a real competitive fight (I actually got vitor winning)

Wanderlei v Sonnen is a great fight. It's not as high - profile as some would like to headline that card, but I want to see them for five rounds anyway so I'm cool with it.

Apparently Silva has backed out of the fight with Sonnen. Guess we'll have to wait and see what happens.

Rumour going around on twitter is that Overeem will return at UFC 164 vs Travis Browne.

Two guys who got destroyed by Bigfoot Silva.

Jones was in a loose-loose situation with Sonnen, if he refuses the fight he's a coward and "afraid" of Sonnen, if he accepts he's a coward for accepting a fight against a smaller unworhty fighter
