Charlie Brenneman Wants Jon Jones to Pay His Rent

Publish date:

One thing that didn't go overlooked when news that UFC 151 would be cancelled was the concern by the remaining fighters in terms of competing and receiving a check. Charlie Brenneman, who was set to take on Kyle Noke on the prelim portion of the event, took to Twitter to make his complaint.

"(Jon Jones) u can send my check to PO box 198. EH NJ," Brenneman wrote. "Rent is due the first, so preferably by then. Thanks."

Jones turned down a replacement fight with Chael Sonnen that would have kept the September 1 event on the calendar. Dan Henderson, the original main event opponent for Jones, was forced to pull out with a knee injury.

UFC president Dana White mentioned during a conference call that there would likely be plenty of backlash from other fighters and MMA fans towards Jones for his decision to turn down facing Sonnen on short notice.
