Dana White and Greg Jackson UFC

UFC president Dana White on Thursday announced that UFC 151: Jones vs. Henderson in Las Vegas is cancelled due to a Dan Henderson knee injury.

He didn’t stop there, however, going on to explain that although Chael Sonnen agreed to step in and fight Jon Jones, the champ wouldn’t return the favor, saying he would not fight Sonnen on eight days notice.

Amidst questions from the media, the conversation went all over the place, with White saying that Sonnen called Jones a “mental midget,” and White himself laying into Jones’ coach, Greg Jackson, who counseled Jones to not accept the fight.

Check out what White had to say about Sonnen, Jones and Jackson and the special UFC 151 cancellation announcement media conference call…
