"Here's a quick stat for you. So there's been 22 [UFC events] this year? We had 12 bonuses so far this year. So one out of every two, one of my fighters got 'Submission of the Night,' 'Knockout of the Night,' or 'Fight of the Night.' [Dana] wants to say there's a consistency? Okay, let's look at statistical consistencies. Let's look at Jon Jones, who has finished every fight with me in the first round, except for that Matt Hamill one, which would have been a first-round stoppage anyway if he hadn't thrown that illegal elbow. Let's look at Carlos Condit, who had Fight of the Night and Knockout of the Night. Even people on the undercard who people don't really know yet. Kyle Noke, two finishes, both in the second round. Almost everybody on our team finishes consistently. It didn't bug me until Dana said it. Fans are fans, but Dana said that and, you know, I've worked really hard in his organization. If you look at my stats, they're insane. Imagine you give your life to something and then your boss comes up and says, 'Man, you suck.'"

World renowned mixed martial arts trainer Greg Jackson drops a mathematical bomb on UFC President Dana White's recent criticism over the consistency of the Jackson camp after Nate Marquardt phoned it in against Yushin Okami at UFC 122 back on Nov. 13. Jackson is often recognized for his shortcomings and not necessarily his success, which could in itself be an indication of how much he's accomplished in the few short years the fight guru has been sending his troops into battle. Anyone think his criticism was unwarranted? Or did his camp fail Nate Marquardt in his time of need?
