UFC President Dana White and Jon Jones finally met face to face after the debacle that was UFC 151_s cancellation and according to White, who spoke about the meeting at the UFC 152 post fight press conference, the two settled their differences - though he wouldn_t offer much else:
"We had a great talk. I_m not going to talk about anything that we talked about yesterday – we both kind of shook hands as men and made a couple agreements to each other that I will keep, and hopefully he_ll keep his, and we_ll have a great relationship."
On Jones: "Jon_s made some mistakes. He has. And now it_s time for him to fix them. He_s going to be around for a long time. He_s not going anywhere unless he does it to himself. Driving while intoxicated is a big mistake, the way the whole thing went down with UFC 151, and then whatever the reason is that fans are negative toward him as it is, calling him fake or phony or whatever."
On Jones_ potential: "As Jon continues to win more fights, continues to feel comfortable with who he really is, I think he_ll get better all around – publicly, his image, his fighting. There_s times he just feels he_s not comfortable with who he is as a fighter – and he really is a good guy. He_s not a bad guy. And you know me. If things go south and I don_t see eye to eye and things aren_t really right, I_ll let you know."
