Greg Jackson responds to Dana White’s comments, was just giving Jon Jones his opinion

August 23, 2012 All MMA News, UFC

World renowned mixed martial arts coach, Greg Jackson, has quickly released a statement following the rather heated impromptu conference call tonight headed by Dana White which saw the UFC President call him “a f***ing sport killer” and claimed the only person who should speak to him is a shrink.

Speaking via The MMA Show, Jackson said:

“I was asked if it was smart to take a fight on three days notice and I don’t think it’s smart to do that. 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.”

“I really like Dana and respect him…there is no ill feelings. I’m more confused than anything else. It’s a serious fight with serious ramifications. I don’t think I need to reach out to Dana. I didn’t mean to cancel an event and was asked to give an opinion and I gave it. We all got together and are on the same sheet of music. These guys are professional promoters and that’s what they do.”

“I didn’t know they had it all riding on one fight. It’s one of those things…as a trainer. I’ll give you my opinion. I’m not a yes man… I do what’s best for my guy. I’m surprised by the veracity of his response but that’s my opinion. In this case (of the short notice fight), it’s a world title fight in the best sport in the world on three days notice. This isn’t backyard brawling it’s a professional sport. I think Chael is brilliant. He circumvented an entire division went right from Anderson (Silva) to Jon. It’s brilliant he’s got nothing to lose and everything to gain. I’m always impressed by him.”

The event set for September 22nd in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, will now revert to UFC 151 and be headlined by not only Jones vs. Machida but Joseph Benavidez vs. Demetrious Johnson for the vacant flyweight title. Stay tuned to MMABay for more on this situation as we get it including no doubt a bunch of insults heading Jones’ way by none other than Chael Sonnen.

Buying Supplements for MMA Training and Hardcore Workouts
Many people ask what type of supplements they should use for MMA training and hardcore workouts. With each person and training program the supplements will vary.  Anyone exerting enormous amounts of energy with their training needs to have a proper diet, lots of rest and quality supplementation. Some of the supplement staples for MMA and hardcore workouts will include Creatine, Whey Protein, BCAAs (Branched Chain Amino Acids), L Carnitine, Beta Alanine and Glutamine.  You may also need extra pre-workout energy and strength with Ephedrine/Ephedra and Prohormones.  As well you will need to replenish nutrients with Multivitamins, Super Greens, Fish Oil and Joint Support Supplements. Make sure to research what the requirements are for your specific training program, and do as much research as possible on each supplement you are taking. Buy supplements at a trusted source - one company we recommend for quality products and service is CenturySupplements.com.  They have quick delivery to the UK and a wide selection. They have been around for along time and have had great reviews from our customers.
