Jon Jones and Daniel Cormier Are At It Again, And Cormier Is Winning

Former champ and part-time snitch Jon Jones has a little bit of history with Daniel Cormier.

Twice Jones has beaten the current light-heavyweight and heavyweight champ. And yet both those times, Jones ended up losing his belt because he can’t keep away from illicit substances.

Now Jones is back from his last drug suspension, and he’s working the social media angles to get under Cormier’s skin. It just might be working, but Jones is getting slapped around a little hard…

Here’s some of the back and forth:

First, Jones fired off some Hater-ade.

@dc_mma You mad, Bro? USADA keeps calling but you’re not going to pick up the phone because the second you hear them say I’m innocent is the instant the illusion you’ve created shatters. Then it’s all real AGAIN and that’s not a step you’re willing to take. Instead you wrap yourself in your fake belt and keep telling yourself the shin that slammed into your face and the performance that buried you once again was enhanced. The fact you can’t beat me kills you and it stops you from picking up that phone. If you answer it then the nightmare becomes reality. Then again, maybe you do pick up, accept the truth that you were defeated by a superior fighter and that gives you peace. Or it goes another way and you get motivated to try a third time and that will save me the hassle of having to dig you up before I bury you. So now that the illusion you’ve built is crumbling and the “violation was not intended nor could it have enhanced the athlete’s performance” you still have to tell yourself something yeah? And while there was “absolutely no intention to use prohibited substances,” it was my intention to kick your ass once again. Mission accomplished. Pick up the phone #letstalkaboutit

Then Cormier responded, and I have to say, he totally eviscerated the dude.

So here we go again Jonny boy. First off, if you did nothing wrong and were “innocent“ then you’d have never been suspended. You’ve had to stand before these people and arbitrators so many times it’s insane. So you slipped again, how many times can one man slip? I’ve been tested 70 times and I haven’t slipped once. How do you explain that? And on top of all the cheating you’ve done around UFC 182, UFC 200 and UFC 214 that’s not even the straw that broke the camel’s back. You are actually a SNITCH! You think you’re the only one that’s been offered this deal? No, you’re just the only scumbag low enough to take it! Which one of your teammates did you tell on to get this joke of a punishment from USADA! I thought there was nothing lower than a cheater but it’s not surprising that you show me a whole new level. You’re a cheater and a SNITCH! Get off my page and go do some coke, or steroids or whatever you losers do in your spare time. #doublechamp

Jones replied, but I don’t know… He’s probably hiding under the cage at Jackson-Winklejohn gym crying right now.

Conor McGregor and Khabib Nurmagomedov Meet Again in New York, No Windows Smashed

They last time they were together, Khabib Nurmagomedov was sitting on a bus and Conor McGregor was smashing windows to get inside. This time, there was no smashing. This time, there was just whiskey and unkind words.

The UFC lightweight champ and the former lightweight champ met today at Radio City Music Hall in New York City to hype their upcoming clash, which will take place on October 6 at UFC 229. Since this is the biggest fight the UFC has in the works right now, of course the Dagestani and Irishman were put on a stage to talk trash to each other.

For his part, Nurmagomedov was pretty subdued… which is about what you’d expect. Ol’ Khabib isn’t much of a trashtalker, and there’s no way he’d ever out-talk McGregor.

McGregor was his usual self. He even brought a bottle of his new line of whiskey, and he coaxed boss Dana White to have a glass with him.

Notable Conor McGregor-isms from the press-only affair include:

  • McGregor complaining that there were no fans there, only media. (Obviously, this was done for security reasons, because the last thing the UFC needs is McGregor fans and Khabib fans going berserk and killing each other… which they would do.)
  • Tons of trashtalk about Nurmagomedov’s ties to Russian warlords and criminals, because yes, Khabib does have some connections to them.
  • Conor promising to break Nurmagomedov’s “rat jaw”.

Also worth noting is that when McGregor and Nurmagomedov squared off for the usual staredown, there were a handful of NYPD officers standing close by. I guess that whole bus incident left an impression, eh?

Here’s the video of the press conference.

Sorry (Again) Nicco, But Latest UFC Rankings Have Been Updated

Tatiana Suarez’ stock, meanwhile, has skyrocketed!

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) returned to pay-per-view (PPV) this past weekend (Sat., Sept. 8, 2018) with UFC 228, which took place inside American Airlines Center in Dallas, Texas.

Headlining in “The Lonestar State” was a Welterweight showdown between division champion, Tyron Woodley, against the previously undefeated 170-pound up-and-comer, Darren Till. “The Chosen One” dominated from the start, routing “The Gorilla” en route to an impressive second round d’arce choke submission (watch it). No harm, no foul, though, as Till’s stock didn’t drop whatsoever, according to the latest rankings update at UFC.com. Former women’s Flyweight champion, Nicco Montano, was not as fortunate, dropping two spots in the rankings. And she didn’t even end up fighting. Indeed, Montano had health-related complications cutting weight and was sent to the hospital as a precaution. She was subsequently removed from her scheduled bout with No. 1-ranked contender, Valentina Shevchenko, and then stripped of her belt, which she learned about on social media.

Ah, only these types of things can happen in the good ‘ole UFC. Anyway, here’s how the rankings work (courtesy of UFC.com):

“Rankings were generated by a voting panel made up of media members. The media members were asked to vote for who they feel are the top fighters in the UFC by weight-class and pound-for-pound. A fighter is only eligible to be voted on if they are in active status in the UFC. A fighter can appear in more than one weight division at a time. The champion and interim champion are considered to be in the top positions of their respective divisions and therefore are not eligible for voting by weight-class. However, the champions can be voted on for the pound-for-pound rankings.”

Jones Once Again The Face Of Sports Nutrition

Not only did Jon Jones test positive for performance-enhancing drugs, he tested positive while telling the mixed martial arts (MMA) community that he was using products from GAT, the sports nutrition company that boasts “superior strength and massive gains.”

Since GAT quickly released a statement insisting Jones failed for substances not found in any of its products, it would suggest that whatever GAT provided wasn’t getting the job done, forcing “Bones” to look elsewhere for his MASSIVE GAINZ. Either way, it’s just not a good look.

There’s a reason Jones wasn’t sponsored by Bud Light after his DUI arrest back in 2012.

Not even a second failed test at UFC 214, one that stripped Jones of his 205-pound strap, could keep GAT from getting back into the “Bones” business, a decision recently announced on social media.

Take a look:

Alrighty then.

If Jones is lining up sponsors, that would suggest that he may be near the end of his drug test suspension, handed down by United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) in the wake of his “no contest” against Daniel Cormier.

That said, I do find it rather unusual that USADA, unlike most other cases, never really provided any details regarding his future. Perhaps some clarification will be provided when Jones makes his Octagon return.

I hear this card is in need of a main event.

UFC 227 Results: TJ Dillashaw Does It Again, Smashing Cody Garbrandt Ever Quicker Than Before

The last time they fought, it took TJ Dillashaw about a round and a half to knock then-champ Cody Garbrandt out. This time around, it took less than a round.

In the main event of UFC 227, bantamweight top dog Dillashaw gave former teammate-now rival Garbrandt his immediate rematch, and you have to think that maybe Garbrandt should’ve taken some extra time off to work on those holes Dillashaw keeps exploiting.

Yes, they threw down, firing fists that were almost faster than bullets while flitting into range and flitting out. And since we both know these guys are capable of banging, and putting people away with the heat they throw, at any moment either guy could’ve gone down.

But Dillashaw simply has Garbrandt’s number, and has a firm handle on when to unleash those counters, and soon it was a knee and some punches that had Garbrandt sinking to the canvas once more.

It was a pretty badass performance by both, but Dillashaw… he’s the man.

 

Results: TJ Dillashaw def. Cody Garbrandt via TKO (Punches) at 4:17, R1
