Dana White vs. Jon Jones, round 2

UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones discusses his new opponent, Vitor Belfort at UFC 152 on Sept. 22.

Embedded above these words you'll find Jon Jones offering some more words about UFC 152 and fighting Vitor Belfort.

And on Tuesday, Sept. 11, he'll offer more words as the UFC 152 conference call takes place at 2 p.m. ET.

Also scheduled to be on that call is UFC president Dana White, who last time he was on such a call, lambasted Jones for not accepting a fight against Chael Sonnen on 10 days' notice. White subsequently canceled UFC 151, scheduled for Sept. 1, and went off on Jones, his trainer Greg Jackson and anything else that got in his way that day. The UFC also released the audio from the conference call and a press release that required the bus driver to jack up the wheels another foot or two to make more room underneath.

White has said publicly in the days since that he has not yet spoken to Jones since that call. But after such vitriol has launched in late August, how will White go about promoting his light heavyweight champion leading up to Sept. 22 in Toronto? Perhaps we'll learn a few answers Tuesday.
