Silva Tried To Save 151, Says Jones Could Have Fought Sonnen | UFC NEWS


“You have a whole camp preparing to fight a specific athlete When the opponent changes, the preparation changes a bit. I thought he could have fought Chael, but it’s his decision. He prepared to fight Dan Henderson. The whole team thought it was best not to fight.

When I heard the event might be canceled, I called [UFC President] Dana White and said I would fight in the light heavyweight division against someone who also wasn’t training for the event. Besides the main fight, the event had many other fighters who depended on it. I worried about that, because I have lived through situations like this in smaller events.”

UFC middleweight champion, Anderson Silva, talks to sherdog.com about the historic UFC 151 cancellation.
