If Dan Henderson had been hoping to still get a crack at the UFC Light Heavyweight title after a knee injury forced him out of UFC 151 by taking shots at Jon Jones for not accepting a fight with Chael Sonnen, it may have worked.
Jones, who is scheduled to now face Vitor Belfort at UFC 152, blasted Henderson this week while speaking to The Toronto Sun
"I haven_t said that anywhere, but you can be the first to put that out," Jones said over the phone. "There_s some unfinished business, for sure. I don_t think Henderson handled the situation wisely, by making fun of me for not taking the fight (against Sonnen). Dude, you just dodged a bullet and you_re talking trash to me? You got injured and you_re going to talk trash that I didn_t fight Chael?
"He came out with this ad that said, â€˜Buy a Hendo shirt and get a free Jon Jones shirt to dry your car off with._ You_re making fun of me, yet you got hurt and dodged a bullet? You_re sitting at home with ice on your knee and I_m here doing pushups again because I thought my camp should have been over. I have stuff to do and you_re sitting around your home playing video games, or whatever you do during the day.
"You should shut up and be grateful you dodged a bullet."
