Um, what did we say about the UFC before Chael Sonnen fought Anderson Silva a month ago? We said the sport was in big trouble because it has one transcending figure and that guy is Sonnen. We also said Dana White fight cards are, dare we say, becoming boring. And now Jon Jones has declined a UFC 151 last-minute replacement (Sonnen) for Dan Henderson.
That means no UFC 151 PPV.
Of course Sonnen went off on Jones via ESPN.
Jones, who is now sponsored by Nike, should change its slogan to “Just do nothing,” according to Sonnen. The guy never fails to give a great interview. Best in the business.
