A few updates on what's been going on in the MMA & UFC Twitterverse
"30 min to cement your legacy. Champ or Coward? I make a lot more than you do... Show up in 8 days I'll give you my purse... Times up" -Chael Sonnen
"Carrying the cross for my company's decision. If someone has to take the blame, I will accept full responsibility for the way UFC 151 was canceled. I want to sincerely apologize to all the other athletes/fans who's time and money was waisted... I feel terrible about the way that was handled. " -Jon Jones, and his heartfelt "apology".
"Dan Henderson Got Hurt 3 Weeks Ago" -Jon Jones
"Glad you guys are opening up your eyes "
@bladerballer: @jonnybones Hendo injured 3+ weeks ago?!!? Who carries the blame now?"" -Jon Jones, say what you want, one guy tried to fight a dominant champ with 1 knee. The other didn't want to fight a smaller guy stepping out of his couch.
"Jon Jones stopped following Dana White on Twitter. Ouch." -MiddleEasy
"Another former world champion, now this is what I'm here for.." -Jon Jones
