Machida turns down UFC 152 title shot, Belfort steps up

The main event for UFC 152 has been changed once again as Lyoto Machida refused to fight Jon Jones in Toronto on September 22, capping off a disastrous day for everyone at UFC.

With Jones refusing to fight Sonnen, and Machida refusing to fight Jones, Vitor Belfort has stepped up the plate to take on the current Light Heavyweight champion. Belfort was going to fight at UFC 153 in Rio De Janeiro against Alan Belcher but obviously he has been pulled from that show.

Machida said he turned down the fight because he needed to train more before going for the UFC Light Heavyweight title and White said that after refusing the fight, Machida will most likely have to earn his shot again in the future.
