Greg Jackson was on Mauro Ranallo's MMA Show this afternoon and said this in response to the tongue lashing he received when Dana White called him a "fucking sport killer."
"I was asked if it was smart to take a fight on three days notice (very little training takes place in the final week so there were essentially three training days left for UFC 151) and I don't think it's smart to do that," he said. "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."
"Fighting on three days notice isn't taking (things) seriously to me."
