Could things be finally patching up between UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones and UFC president Dana White? It appears so, slowly but surely. In his pre- fight interview with Ariel Helwani, Jones tells Helwani that he forgives White for what he said about him after the cancellation of UFC 151, even though Jones says he has still not received a formal apology.

“I’m not expecting him to apologize, but I’m moving forward..Dana spoke his mind, and he can’t take back what happened, and I can’t take back what happened. I don’t think he wants to, so we’re just going to be men and keep this great dream that we have going.”

I don’t know, I don’t know [how to forgive someone who hasn’t apologized], but I’m going to try it.”
