Jon Jones says he is now learning to embrace his antagonist image.
In preparation for the grudge rematch between Daniel Cormier and Jon Jones at UFC 214, the UFC put out a promotional video entitled “Tame Your Demons”. It basically highlighted the respective titles runs of both men, and it obviously included Jones’ run-ins with the law that led to the stripping of his title, as well his drug test mishaps.
Another day, another war of words between Daniel Cormier and Jon Jones.
The feud between current UFC light heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier and former champ Jon Jones has been going on seemingly forever. There was plenty of talk before their first bout in January of 2015, which Jones won, and it has never waned since.
Almost three years ago, Jon Jones warned Daniel Cormier about the left head kick that cost him the fight at UFC 214.
There’s ‘Mystic Mac’, and there’s Jon Jones.
It could just be that, the left head kick that ‘Bones’ landed on Daniel Cormier at UFC 214 had been in the making for almost three years.
Jon Jones is willing to bury the hatchet with Daniel Cormier, but under one condition.
The rivalry between Daniel Cormier and Jon Jones has been running since 2014 when they first laid hands on each other during the UFC 178 pre-fight media day. Since then, the UFC light heavyweight title had changed hands and both fighters had been on different paths, but the bad blood has remained at its boiling point.
Jon Jones reacts to the slight controversy during Daniel Cormier’s weigh-ins on Friday morning.
During UFC 210’s official weigh-ins on Friday morning, Daniel Cormier stepped onto the scales twice. After initially tipping the scales at 206.2 pounds, he briefly stepped out and went back in two minutes later weighing in on the dot at the 205-pound mark.
Jose Aldo isn’t concerned about who is next opponent is, but he really wants to fight at UFC 217 on Nov. 4.
Jose Aldo might be considering a career in boxing, but the former UFC featherweight champion can’t wait to return to the Octagon.

Jose Aldo is happy to stay at featherweight instead of pursuing a lightweight title fight against Conor McGregor.
The loss to Conor McGregor might sting, but Jose Aldo has moved on and wants to re-establish himself as the best featherweight in the world.
Aldo, 30, was determined for a rematch with ‘The Notorious’ at lightweight, but his priorities have changed since losing the 145-pound title to Max Holloway at UFC 212.
UFC featherweight champion Jose Aldo has resigned himself to never getting the chance to avenge his loss to Conor McGregor.
Jose Aldo is gearing up for a featherweight title unification bout with Max Holloway at UFC 212. This will count as a title defense for Aldo, and it represents his first one since the infamous 13-second KO loss to Conor McGregor at UFC 194. McGregor “relinquished” his belt and currently possesses the lightweight strap, and is otherwise pursuing a boxing match with Floyd Mayweather.
RIO DE JANEIRO – Jose Aldo’s vicious leg kicks have acquired a reputation of their own over the years. And, in case anyone missed them during his last performance, there was a logical – and potentially paranoia-inducing – explanation.
Jose Aldo wants to leave the UFC and the sport for good, and says that not even an offer to rematch Conor McGregor would change his mind.
Six months after losing his featherweight belt to "The Notorious" in December, Aldo got back inside the Octagon to rematch Frankie Edgar for the interim title at UFC 200. Almost three months have passed since his unanimous decision victory, and the Brazilian is now asking to be released from his contract.

TUF 26 coach Justin Gaethje is looking to secure a fight with Conor McGregor if he can defeat Eddie Alvarez.

According to UFC lightweight Kajan Johnson, the UFC has plans in place to launch an “initiative” in October that will financially benefit fighters.
UFC fighters will apparently be presented with a new money-making opportunity come October. That’s according to Kajan Johnson, who says he spoke to UFC COO Lawrence Epstein (via a representative) earlier this week and was told the mixed martial arts organization is planning an “initiative that is going to benefit the fighters financially.”
There were some pretty good fights at the UFC 202 pay-per-view (PPV) event, which took place last Saturday night (Aug. 20, 2016) inside T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada (proof).

SBG Dublin head coach John Kavanagh revealed that Conor McGregor wanted an MMA fight against Paulie Malignaggi.
Leaked sparring videos that were followed by media tirades led to the angle of a possible fight between Conor McGregor and Paulie Malignaggi.

John Kavanagh says it’s unlikely that Conor McGregor fights in 2017.
What’s next for Conor McGregor after his high profile loss to Floyd Mayweather? It’s probably going to be in mixed martial arts, and while the UFC champion himself obviously has the final say, his coach John Kavanagh has explained what he wants to happen moving forward.
Donald Cerrone will get his fight at UFC 205 in New York City, but it won’t be the dream matchup many had hoped for against Robbie Lawler.
