UFC has announced that Jon Jones and Chael Sonnen will serve as coaches for TUF 17.

Dan Henderson has expressed his disappointement over the surprise announcement of UFC officials yesterday. The promotion has named UFC light heavyweight champ and two-time middleweight contender as future contenders and coaches for the upcoming 17th season of “The Ultimate Fighter”.

Henderson was supposed to be Jones’ contender at the recently cancelled UFC 151 event. He was forced to withdraw from the event after sustaining a knee injury.

Henderson used his Twitter account to express his displeasure and directed his message to UFC President, :

- I guess I should just quit training to win fights and to be exciting for the fans and just go to shit talking school. @danawhite

Sonnen offered to replace Henderson during the scrapped UFC show, but Jones rejected his offer.  Henderson is said to be fighting Lyoto Machida in a scheduled title match, next year.
