UFC president Dana White just announced the cancellation of UFC 151 after Dan Henderson injured his knee, and Jones refused to fight Chael Sonnen.
An irate White referred to Jones' coach Greg Jackson as being a "f----- sport killer" for refusing the fight.
Minutes later Jackson appeard on The MMA Show Podcast, and defended his stance.
"I was asked if it was smart to take a fight on three days notice," said Jackson. "I don't think it's smart to do that. Three days to fight a guy that caliber is not a smart thing to do. I'm not trying to ruin the sport or cancel an event. I don't know about that stuff, but thought it wasn't a wise course of action."
