Send em my way.That marks a change in approach for Jones who famously forced UFC 151 to be cancelled in August 2012 when he refused to fight Chael Sonnen on eight days notice after his scheduled opponent Dan Henderson was forced to pull out of their title fight due to injury.At the time, Dana White said: This is probably one of my all-time lows as being president of UFC.The fight against Jones represents a huge opportunity for Saint Preux, who is the UFCs number six ranked light heavyweight contender, but one of only two men among the top eight that Jones has yet to beat.
