Video: Dana White erupts on Jon Jones, refuses to talk to 'Bones' or return his calls over UFC 200 fiasco

Straight from the horse's mouth!

Former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) light heavyweight champion Jon Jones was flagged for a potential anti-doping violation following an out-of-compettion drug test back in June, one that ruined his UFC 200 pay-per-view (PPV) headliner against Daniel Cormier.


In case you were wondering, yes, UFC President Dana White is still mad, and will not even give "Bones" the opportunity to call him on the phone to explain himself.

From his fiery appearance on Colin Cowherd:

"I don't know where Lorenzo (Fertitta) is on this issue, but I still haven't talked to Jon Jones. There's nothing for me and Jon Jones to talk about. I haven't and I'm not gonna. I'm not talking to him, there's no reason for us to talk. Listen, I'm not the biggest Jon Jones fan right now, but I truly believe that he did take a supplement that had this stuff in it and it wasn't intentional. I truly believe that. But at the same time, c'mon. You're 28 years old, you're probably the greatest talent to ever step foot inside this sport, right? Call USADA and tell them what supplements you're taking. You've already been through this history of just absolute madness. Forget doing this to us. Why would you do this to yourself? You're a grown up. And the guys that are around him are just as bad. The guys who are supposed to be looking out for him and watching his back and making sure ... gimme a break."

Just watch yourself around that cliff.

With Jones removed, Cormier will now fight Anderson Silva on the PPV main card. The women's bantamweight championship showdown between 135-pound titleholder Miesha Tate and top contender Amanda Nunes, meanwhile, takes over as the five-round headliner.
