"He's a long way away. He's not coming off the (Anderson) Silva fight and just talking his way into a 205-pound world title shot. [Sonnen] is going to have to beat a couple of the best in the world. If he beats Forrest Griffin, we'll shoot him right into the top five and let him fight some of those guys there, and we'll see what happens."
This is Mr. White, 3 days ago.
White and the media are too subjective.

Hypocrisy from my mouth?!
Am i the one who declared the above phrases?! Am i the one who said some things and did the contrary?!
I think you...and many others on this place have me confused with Jon Jones, just because i am known to be one of his biggest fans on this place.
So....if Jones f*cks up something, my name pops up immediately in the conversation.
F*uck me if i understand why...
Do you want me to repeat what i said yesterday: i think Jones made a mistake by not taking on Sonnen and he will collect the rewards in the future.
But...he did say he won#t give him a shot without earning it. And he stood by his word.
No matter what Jones would have done it would have ended up badly for him.
The guy has so many haters, it's hard to notice where the bit*cjing is coming from.
I am not here to defend him. He's a big boy. He can do it himself.
But, just like yourself, i can express my opinion. And you can like it or not.
Blaming Jones for everything that went wrong with UFC 151 is really retarded.
Firstly: it was Henderson who f*cked up like an amateur, tearing his ACL 8 days before one of the biggest fights of his life. Who does that?
Who gets hurt one week before a title fight?!
Then, Jones passed, wich sucks.
But he is/was willing to fight Sonnen at 152. Why not make that fight?!
And anyway...an untrained-out of shape Sonnen would have had ZERO chances against Jones. AN early finish would have been more than likely. Do you think the fans - and i am talking about those who bought tickets to the event + the PPV buyers - would have been "satisfied customers", knowing the product they spent good money on, is just an improvisation, who didn't make no sense whatsoever?!
The only reason Sonnen's name came into this was because of the Twitter exchange he had with Jones.
Tell me that is not lame?!
Dana talks about GJ ruining the sport. But the way he acted in this case has nothing to do with sports. The moment he decided to give Sonnen a chance, he killed the sporting aspect. A fighter banned for steroids, with a 2-1 record (arguably 1-2) should not get 2 title shots one after another, the second coming after a loss in a title fight.
That is what kills THE SPORT! That is what dents the credibility of this sport and makes it look like f*cking WWE...because what happened last night is nothing sort of a WWE drama, with Dana being Vince Macmahan...(or whateva his name is).
That is what shows how much Dana WHite cares about the sport and how much he cares about MONEY (THE BUSINESS ASPECT OF THE UFC).
Throwing Sonnen in the mix like that had nothing to do with the sport.
They could have cancelled the whole thing off, without the drama and make it look a professional job: refunds + paying the fighters. It wouldn't have cost a lot of money. And let's be honest: these fighters make tons of money for the UFC every 2-3 weeks. The UFC could have done this in return, without making such a big drama.
I have seen sporting events bigger than the UFC, cancelled on the day of the event: football matches with fans 70.000 fans in the stands, Formula 1 events cancelled or rescheduled. And these are sports with much higher exposure than MMA/UFC. ANd life went on.
Instead Dana "Money" White cries like a f*cking b*tch, because one of his employees dared to defy him.
Dana is not used to being turned down.
It just shows his true nature.
I am glad this happened, because it just shows how vulnerable the UFC is.
They bet everything on Jones vs Henderson.
They had an interesting co-main event, but Kos pulled out so they booked Hieron. WTF?!
They didn't even bother with this event.
In the end, Jones is becoming a villain. I f*cking love that. It fits perfectly his alter ego...the person he becomes when he enters the cage. He is savage and violent. By definition he is not supposed to be a nice guy.
