Greg Jackson took the nickname “sport killer” courtesy of UFC president Dana White. He was called that after telling Jon Jones it would be a mistake to meet Chael Sonnen on 10 days of preparation. The end result saw UFC 151 get cancelled as Jones wouldn’t take any fights.
Now that Jones has made quick work of Sonnen, the light heavyweight champion’s manager has nothing negative to say about how this fight went down.
“It’s always just another fight,” said Jackson to Sherdog. “The drama is for the fans and the work is for me.”
At UFC 159, Jones finished Sonnen in the first round to tie the division’s record of five title defenses. They were opposing coaches on the latest season of The Ultimate Fighter.
