With just eight days until the event, Chael Sonnen offered to take on Jones at 205-pounds, however, White noted that the champion turned down the fight and refused to fight Chael Sonnen on 8 days’ notice. As a result, the Ultimate Fighting Championship has cancelled its first event in over 11 years.
