Greg Jackson responds to Dana White's comments
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."
