UFC President Dana White said critics of the promotion's decision to cast light heavyweight champ Jon Jones and Chael Sonnen on reality TV prior to a title fight don't have all the facts.

White said that given an injury to Jones that benched him until April, and Sonnen's vocal callouts of the champ, it "made sense" to put them together.

And while Jones admitted the move devalued his belt "in some ways," he said his primary goal is to silence critics – and Sonnen

Jones obviously didn't get the memo - he's the heel now - Sonnen's the good guy.

Jones bitched about Lyoto not being a money maker...now he's bitching about a fight that will make him more than almost any other fight

It was only a matter of time for Jones to start complaining hes not getting enough money...Jones should think like the movie Gladiator...Winning isnt the maiin thing....Entertaining the crowd will get you the money...
