Dana White has 'all the answers,' says Jon Jones vs. Chael Sonnen 'a fight people want to see' - MMAmania.com
A good portion of mixed martial arts (MMA) fans speculated the recently-announced match-up featuring Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Light Heavyweight Champion Jon Jones vs. former middleweight number one contender Chael Sonnen was a knee-jerk reaction to poor ratings for The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) franchise. |
Sorry, but those fans don't know what the [expletive] they're talking about. Neither does the Internet. That's according to UFC President Dana White, who tells Yahoo! Sports he has all the answers and the promotion knows what it's doing when it comes to matchmaking.
His words, not mine.
"This wasn't where I was going. But when this happened and Jones was going to be out for so long, it made sense. I understand completely [about Sonnen not having won a fight at light heavyweight], but it's a fight people want to see. That's what the word is, that TUF needs the help? People love to speculate and talk [expletive], but the truth of it is, they don't know what the [expletive] they're talking about. I have all the answers. The Internet does not. We built this company and we know what we're doing. That had nothing to do with it."
"Jones vs. Sonnen" has nothing to do with putrid TUF ratings. But I'm sure White won't mind the nice little boost they'll get when "Bones" and "The American Gangster" face off as coaches on season 17, which will culminate in a pay-per-view (PPV) title fight on April 27 at a location to be named.
In fact, we may not need to speculate any longer.
You think this fight was made to combat things like Mayweather vs Manny? I know it's not on the same level but if you hear people wanting a fight, you make the fight, then you can say that the UFC makes fights people want to see.
And I know most don't hear on these boards but the 30 or so of us are a small drop in the ocean that is MMA fans.
There are many paths to freedom....not all are peaceful.
