Thread: Dana White Cancels UFC 151

And I have no idea what the **** Rowdy Ronda Rousey said between her fights and really I don't give a ****. I give less than a ****. I don't even break wind on that ************, giving less than a fart. But I seen her armbar a slew of motherfuckers and that **** pleased me greatly. Love her skills and her approach to mashing motherfuckers in the cage. But motherfuck what she says.Originally Posted by Goju - joe

Perhaps it generates interest, but people are interested in some inane **** - Twilight, 50 shades of Grey, other **** that the world could have done without. The waffling is gaying up MMA with fake drama, man. How the **** do you hate a ************ until 3 seconds after you fight him? Did all that **** just evaporate because you had a narrowly contested split decision?
I don't usually listen to it, of course. But this one came at me and it involved a ************ I love to watch fight and sometimes try to emulate and **** (in his fighting). Also, I was on the internet at the time it started, and you know how that **** is.Originally Posted by Goju - joe

Trying to see the bright side of this...
1) Chris Weidman goes up a few notches:
Chael Sonnen wasn't the only middleweight who volunteered to fight Jon Jones on less than two weeks' notice.
Top 185-pound contender Chris Weidman told MMAFighting.com following Thursday's conference call that he offered to fight Jones next week, as well.
2) UFC on Fox 5 is looking stacked, and what's more, it's not PPV, so I might actually be able to find a place nearby to watch it!
Lightweight Championship bout: Benson Henderson (c) vs. Nate Diaz
Light Heavyweight bout: Mauricio Rua vs. Alexander Gustafsson
Welterweight bout: B.J. Penn vs. Rory MacDonald

Pretty lame. Jones missed his calling, he should be in boxing. All this ballessness makes me a little sick. He was just bitching that a Machida fight wouldn't pay, and then turns down a match with arguably the best fight-seller in the sport. Short notice or no, that fight would have satisfied many-a-fan, and made everyone a bunch of $$$.
Chael came out of this looking awesome. Said the right things, stepped up to fight, praised the company, the sport and the fans, (and the undercard fighters). He might talk **** like a pro wrestler, but he showed he was game to jump in there against someone whom people call the best with very little notice.
Something's wrong when I myself am now more of a Chael Sonnen fan, than a Jon Chickenbones Jones fan. Very very wrong. I just get the sense he loves the sport more than Jones. That's a sad story.
There's very good, and then there's great, and IMO, Jones showed a lack of greatness, in his response to events. This is a guy sponsored by the company, and wouldn't step up.

This is his best interview ever. Made me a fan.
EDIT: Dana came off looking good also. The conference call announcing the cancellation. I was glad for his manner of communication, for once.
Todd Grisham ESPN "Dana, Jon Jones is sponsored by UFC. Will this affect the way you attach your brand to him, going forward"
Dana White: He he he that's a good question. I was never crazy about it in the first place.

At one point Dana gets gully.
Ariel Helwani: He didn't want to fight Machida a week ago, so how did you convince him to take that fight?
DW: I can tell you this right now, he aint turning down the Machida fight. If I get a call today, that says he doesn't want to fight Machida (ominous pause) we'll have another conference call later this afternoon
AH: about what?
DW: I'll have another media call, an-an-and it won't be good.
AH: would you consider...I mean...eh...uh
DW: Hey listen, you know, really Ariel?, come on...stop asking me stupid questions.
AH: But the thing is, does he even know he's fighting Machida yet? Or is he --(finding this out here?)---
DW: Yeah he does, we should have the bout agreement back now.
Damn, he said they'd only canned it an hour prior. One hour turnaround on the new contract = s3rious.

I just typed "UFC" into my search engine, and surprisingly the 151 debacle isn't totally dominating the headlines:
Glad to see MMA is still awesome.
