Dana White: Greg Jackson is a f---in sport killer

by Chris Palmquist | source: The Underground
 

Today at a special press conference, UFC President Dana White announced that Jon Jones refused to fight a replacement offer of Chael Sonnen for his title fight at the advice of his coach, Greg Jackson.

Although not verbatim, White was not at a loss for words, when revealing that Jackson played a big part in the decision, telling Jones it would be the worst mistake of his career:

Greg Jackson is a f--king sport killer. We've never had a fighter refuse to fight a guy. It's never happened.

I don't give a f--- what Greg Jackson thinks. I'm very confused by Greg Jackson. The guy's a wierdo. Greg Jackson should never be interviewed by anybody ever again except from a psychiatrist.

Well, Greg Jackson's philosophy has always been to just win, baby by not fighting.Jones took the not fighting part literally....

I love the way that a 43 year old megalomaniac with the impulse control of a 5 year old (Dana) would attack a guy with an IQ 40 points higher than his own and recommend that that individual should see a psychiatrist all for simply acting in the best interest of his fighter and not cowering down to the will of the mighty Dana.

Keep watering down the cards and having only one great fight and this will happen again

Oh ... and let's not forget that Jones is fighting just 3 weeks later against a guy who actually earned a title shot and 152 is now a "spending money" worthy PPV.

Not taking the fight is 100% on Jones. Jackson could tell him not to take it and others probably told him to take it. It still always comes down to who signs the contract.<br /><br />The difference here is .... Dana wants to deflect blame partially away from his money making Jones. (who Dana will forgive later .. hell look at Overeem for cripes sake)<br /><br />Dana knows that Jackson does not have nuthuggers and is an easy prey in this climate.<br /><br />Having such a weak card that this causes a cancellation? 100% the UFC's fault.

Jones is an adult and is perfectly capable of rejecting bad advice from his coach. He's selfish AND a bad businessman IMO.
