“(Kongo) turned down the fight whether it was on short notice or whatever. It’s the second fight he’s turned down in a row… It’s a lot more normal with guys who are worried about losing. Guys who are in a position where if they lose, you know what I mean? You’re either fighters or you’re not. If you win you win, if you lose, back to the drawing board. That’s the business you’re in. When you turn down a fight, you turn down a fight, and that’s two in a row (for Kongo). I don’t know who he’s waiting for.”
– UFC President Dana White during last Saturday’s post-UFC 154 media scrum.
