Jon Jones blames 'the old man and his knee' for the loss of UFC 151 | UFC News

By: Chris Taylor

It appears that Jon Jones has had enough and is no longer interested in shouldering any of the blame in regards to the cancellation of UFC 151. Jones responded to an upset fan on twitter last night and shed some light on who he thinks is the real culprit to blame:

It was yesterday, that Jones was scheduled to defend his light heavyweight belt against Dan Henderson in Las Vegas, however the fight was scrapped due to a knee injury suffered by the challenger. The UFC scrambled to put together a new main event, but inevitably cancelled the show when Jones turned down the only man willing to fight him on 8 days notice, Chael Sonnen.

It is safe to assume that “the old man” Jon is referring to is in fact Dan Henderson. You know, the same Dan Henderson that only days ago Jones wished a ‘speedy recovery’ and said it ‘would have been an honor to fight’… Ya that old man.
