Despite UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones’ a recent arrest for suspicion of DWI, UFC president Dana White says that he will still put his title on the line against Dan Henderson on Sept. 1 at UFC 151.

“It won’t affect the date,” White told MMAWeekly.com on Saturday night, “but how it will affect him in the fight, we’ll see.”

“He’s a good guy. He’s young. He made a mistake.”
