After several days of silence on Twitter, Jon Jones has returned to face the angry masses that he has been conspicuously avoiding since the announcement of UFC 151's cancellation.

In case you somehow missed it, Dan Henderson injured his knee and was no longer available to face Jones at UFC 151. Lyoto Machida refused to fight Jones on short notice, which left Chael Sonnen as the only viable opponent—from a marketing perspective—for Jones.

Jones remained mum on Twitter, even though he is typically quite active on the social media site. Before these last few moments, Jones' only post was a safe retweet of his official statement to MMAJunkie.com.

Now, though, he is offering his condolences and apologies on Twitter.
