Dana White reacts to Jon Jones and Jon Fitch following recent sets of remarks

UFC President, Dana White is not happy over the recent comments by Jon Jones and Jon Fitch, the two stated that they would be content to either be number two in the division or move up in weight rather than face their close friends and team mates inside the octagon.

Dana, speaking via ESPN.co.uk, said:

“It’s fucking ridiculous. It’s embarrassing. I think it’s embarrassing to say ‘I won’t fight somebody because I train out of the same camp’. These guys train so hard, they put so much time and energy into it, why would you not want to fight somebody to prove you’re the best in the world?”

“It’s not personal, it’s business. It’s the business we’re in. You hear it from the AKA camp, you hear it from the Jackson camp, it drives me completely crazy, it’s completely unprofessional, and it’s fucking ridiculous. We’ll see what happens with Koscheck and St-Pierre. If Koscheck wins the title, Fitch is going to move to 185? I doubt it. I actually think Fitch and Koscheck would fight each other.”
