Not everyone will always be happy with fight announcements as was the case this week when it was announced that Jon Jones and Chael Sonnen will coach the next season of The Ultimate Fighter leading to a fight between the two at the conclusion of the season.

UFC President Dana White was asked about negativity from some fans via social media a regarding the decision to have Sonnen earn a title shot:

“I had tons of fans begging me to make that fight. Just to make it clear from the last press conference when they talk about all the top contenders and all the top contenders whining who didn't get that fight. I called every single one of them and they turned it down,” White said. “Chael Sonnen accepted that fight on eight days notice, that's my kind of guy.”There's tons of people who want to see Chael Sonnen, if you're not one of them, don't buy it. I'll guarantee you'll like the next fight, and if you don't like that one, we put on plenty of fights
