Dana White at UFC 123There has been a lot of finger pointing and blame going round since the cancellation of UFC 151, chiefly between UFC president Dana White and his light heavyweight champion Jon Jones.

The two were slated to meet and hash out their differences late in the day on Friday, but first White did an interview on Fuel TV’s UFC 152 weigh-in special. White may have added a little heat to the situation prior to the meeting, countering Jones’ claims that he didn’t know that UFC 151 would be cancelled if he didn’t accept a short-notice fight with Chael Sonnen.

“He says that he didn’t know that the show would get cancelled is false,” said White. “I did tell him that the show would be cancelled. I think he takes this thing, or is acting like he’s taking this thing too lightly.”

Check out what else White had to say about the volatile situation…
