UFC president Dana White at UFC 146Following UFC 151's cancellation, UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones has been doing the media circles with most of the questions being fired at him aimed at his decision to turn down a fight with late replacement Chael Sonnen.

In one of those interviews, Jones is quoted as saying ‘I felt like a piece of meat’ regarding his treatment surrounding the entire situation.

Now UFC President Dana White is finally hearing about those comments and responding to one of his biggest stars making a statement like that.

“I wonder how the piece of meat was feeling when we bought him a Bentley,” said White when speaking to the Jim Rome show on Thursday.

Jones showed off that Bentley in October 2011 after picking it up following his win over Quinton ‘Rampage’ Jackson at UFC 135 in late September. That was the same Bentley that Jones infamously crashed into a telephone pole during his DWI arrest earlier this year.

The ‘piece of meat’ comment from Jones obviously rubbed Dana White the wrong way because he believes the UFC built him up to the status where he could have toys like a $190,000 Bentley.

“That statement right there drives me insane. A year and a half ago nobody knew who Jon Jones was, now the kid’s a multi-millionaire, he’s got this, that, and a piece of meat?” questioned White.

“Let me tell you what, I know some people who are in some jobs that feel like a piece of meat. Jon Jones is far from one of them.”

Regardless of this latest fray between White and Jones, the UFC President promises that he will sit down with him in Toronto next week prior to UFC 152 and they will hash things out as best they can.

There may be smooth sailing ahead for Jones and White after all this dies down, but there is still a rocky road to travel to get there.
