The UFC 300 main event is yet to be announced; as of now, all the matchups have failed to materialize. UFC was considering Jon Jones vs Stipe Miocic for the main event, but Jon Jones recently disclosed that he still needs more time to recover, due to which he won't participate in the historic event.

Chael Sonnen believes Jon Jones outed the UFC by revealing that he's not fighting at UFC 300.

In a recent YouTube video, Chael Sonnen explained why he isn't happy to see Jon Jones detailing his exclusion from the UFC 300 event.

"Jon Jones comes out and he says, 'Yeah, the UFC, they just offered me a main event for UFC 300,' and I would just have absolutely no idea what goes through that guy's head," Sonnen said, as quoted by mmajunkie.usatoday.com.

"There's a level of stupid that's really hard to achieve. I mean, it's hard. You have a heavyweight champion of the world who is amongst the best to have ever done it in any weight class. Heavyweight sucks, so it's not like a compliment to say, 'He's the best heavyweight ever.'

No, man, I'm talking about a real compliment to Jon, just one of the best to ever do it period. But you have to understand if no one's talking about you, then you're not. It's not questionable or a maybe. If the world's not talking about you, you're not".

"If he made this up, if this is a lie about 300, great job, first time you've ever done a great job – great job. But because it would be the first time, because that's off brand, I don't think it's what happened.

I think he got a phone call. So, now he comes out and he outs the organization. He just outs the organization, 'Hey man, these guys don't have a main event'".
