Despite UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones’ a recent arrest for suspicion of DWI, UFC president Dana White says that he will still put his title on the line against Dan Henderson on Sept. 1 at UFC 151.
“It won’t affect the date,” White told MMAWeekly.com on Saturday night, “but how it will affect him in the fight, we’ll see.”
“He’s a good guy. He’s young. He made a mistake.”
Jones’s incident, along with others, still don’t lead White to believe that the UFC should institute a blanket code of conduct policy similar to the NFL or other sports leagues. He is more of the belief that each case should be handled on its own merits and details.
