Chael Sonnen accepted the fight with Jon Jones, UFC started working on promotion, but Jones said I'm not fighting Chael Sonnen.

Dana said Greg Jackson said there is no way you take the fight. "it would be the biggest mistake of your entire career."


Brent Brookhouse ‏@brentbrookhouse
Jones wants high reward/low risk fights. That's what Sonnen represented

JJ is no longer Dana's golden boy after this.

I can sorta see where Jones is coming from it's short notice but it's short notice for Sonnen too. It's slowly turning into boxing with fighters ducking fights...spearheaded by Silva/Jones.

Jones is being a massive hypocrite again. Turns down a fight with someone who will bring in PPV buys, while fighting someone he didn't want to again b/c he didn't get enough buys.

Just shut the hell up.

Ariel Helwani ‏@arielhelwani
Dana says he was never crazy about ufc sponsoring jones. "I hate it."


Inside MMA ‏@InsideMMAaxstv
When asked how much this decision affects his opinion on Jon Jones Dana replied... "A lot...."

I totally see where Jones is coming from but Dana going over the top is hilarious as always.

Exactly and Jones is probably in great shape too. I feel bad for the rest of the fighters on the card. That has to be a terrible feeling.

Jones has spent his whole training camp preparing for a wrestler and refuses to fight a middleweight wrestler as a replacement? This hurts his image big time and gives Chael major ammunition.

If I were those guys I'd damn well expect the paycheck. Training camps aren't cheap.

He was training for a wrestler with KO power and turns down a wrestler that has more losses than finishes...go get some fans Jon.

Dana: me and Lorenzo are both disgusted. ... Chael is a lunatic (in a loving way, it seems).

Sonnen didn't deserve the shot anyway.

I am fine with this move. The card sucked anyway, and UFC 152 was also looking weak. Now we will have a really good 152 (well now 151) and move on with better cards going forward.

Jones comes off bad, but I couldn't care less because I prefer this result anyway.

How many injury replacements truly deserve the fight? Jon Jones has cost the UFC millions of dollars by forcing them to cancel the event. There's absolutely no reason the supposed pound for pound greatest fighter is scared to fight a middleweight with no KO power.
