UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones was scheduled to face Dan Henderson tonight in his fourth title defense since claiming the belt.
However, after Henderson was forced to pull out of the fight, Jones turned down an opportunity to meet Chael Sonnen.
Jones has caught much of the flack for the decision to cancel the card completely, including by followers on Twitter. “Bones” responded to one of those “fans” on Saturday.

Jones will defend his title later this month against Vitor Belfort at UFC 152.
Henderson is hoping he will be able to return to action before the end of the year, as he avoided surgery on the knee issue that knocked him out of the fight.
