“He wasn’t happy about it. He was upset, but it is what it is. This is the first time it’s ever happened.”
“I don’t think we’ve ever stripped a champion for violating a code of conduct. It’s the first time. Guys have been cut for different things, different reasons. Jon Jones was stripped and suspended.”
“Well obviously the first thing we wanted them to do was sit in front of the lawyer, sit in front of Jon Jones and hear the facts from the both of them. Because there’s a lot of misconceptions and myths about what happened that day.”
Dana White was on UFC Tonight and explained what exactly went down when he had his meeting with former UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Jon Jones. He explains that Jones was not happy about it and how it was the first time they’ve cut a champion for legal matters.
When asked if he knew when Jones was returning, White said, “Jon, right now, has to focus on his pending legal matters. I don’t know we’ll see how this thing plays out.”
