"UFC 151 will be remembered as the event Jon Jones and Greg Jackson murdered."

-- That pretty much sums up today's (Aug. 23, 2012) events, according to Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) President Dana White. Tell us how you really feel, Dana. After being forced to do what he and the UFC have never had to do in 11 years, which is to cancel an entire pay-per-view (PPV) event altogether, a heated White blasted his Light Heavyweight champion, Jon Jones along with his head trainer, Greg Jackson, for not taking a last-minute fight with Chael Sonnen at UFC 151 on Sept. 1, 2012. "Bones' was given the option to take on the former two-time number one Middleweight contender after his original opponent, Dan Henderson, was forced to bow out because of a torn MCL. With plenty of folks' "Labor Day" weekend plans ruined because of the cancelation, White was none too thrilled, obviously. To hear more from White and his "disgust' with Jones, click here and here. In a long history of classic one-liners from the brash president, this one is right up at the top. Do you (dis) agree?
