Midnight Mania! DC, Lance Armstrong Blast Jones And His ‘Old Lady’ Novitsky

Bringing you the weird and wild from the world of MMA each and every weeknight

Welcome to Midnight Mania!

Daniel Cormier blasted old rival Jon Jones and UFC employee Jeff Novitsky today on social media. He posted a screenshot of this BJPenn.com story that contained an Instagram comment from former cyclist (and noted doper) Lance Armstrong:

“AKA the Star F***er,” Lance Armstrong wrote in his scathing comment about Jeff Novitzky (h/t MMA Weekly). “Couple of questions. Why the double standard for Jones and others? And let’s get right to it, what does the science and scientists say? I think I know the answer, but let’s let the star f***er speak to it.”

Armstrong has a personal history with Novitsky, who prior to his work doing damage control for the UFC, did have a real career working for the US Food and Drug Administration, and played a role in the shattering of Armstrong’s reputation, despite the cyclist never failing a test, as Jones himself noted in a characteristic lack of self-awareness before all this latest insanity became public.

Cormier’s caption was no less savage, directing plenty of ire both at Jones and Novitsky.

This guy Jon Jones is such a dirt bag cheater that even Lance Armstrong is weighing in lol. Lance is like where the fuck was Jeff when I was going through this shit lol. And boy how did Jones turn Jeff Novitzky into his old lady. This is the craziest shit I’ve ever seen. And now people sending me clips of this dude being arrogant at a press conference. That is one crazy negro! Jeff Novitsky-Jones lmao #usadafake #turinabol

Platinum Mike Perry (who trains with Jon Jones) thought Daniel Cormier was just being negative. Cormier gently corrected him.

The press conference Cormier referenced was absolutly remarkable, with Jones displaying an uncanny, yet classic ability to explicitly make himself the victim.

He also was confronted for having no soul, which was a perfect moment.

Oh, and let’s not forget that he shouted down a journalist for daring to ask a legitimate question. Isabelle Kostic’s second question, which she unfortunately never repeated, was the best one she asked: why is Jon Jones fighting for similar test results to what got Tom Lawlor or Frank Mir banned?


More UFC 232 nonsense

It is incredibly unlikely, but how wild would it be if Alexander Gustafsson did this to Jon Jones?

Khabib Nurmagomedov, or more likely his manager Ali Abdelaziz, weighs in again

Tim Means explains how Jon Jones’ argument didn’t apply to his situation, when he actually had an explanation for his positive tests.

Thank you.

If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. If it is, double down and do more.

A reminder that the UFC were not honest with their timeline for this event.

This isn’t what they were telling us when these tests happened.

Great question, except they clearly don’t stop certain fighters named Jon Jones.

PFL 4 Results: Both Andre Harrison and Lance Palmer Snag Wins, Advancing in Tournament

It was a World Series of Fighting reunion in the PFL main- and co-main events, with former champs Lance Palmer and Andre Harrison pretty much picking up where they left off when the WSOF folded and kicking butt.

For the undefeated Harrison, who faced UFC and Bellator (and just about every other organization out there) vet Nazareno Malegarie, that meant three maddening rounds of sprawling and clipping Argentinean jiu-jitsu black belt with the occasional kick or punch. Look, Harrison is awesome, and comes from the local New York/New Jersey scene I used to cover, but would it kill the guy to find a finish?

Meanwhile, the main event was all about Palmer completely and totally dominating hapless Jumabieke Tuerxun on the ground. Apparently Tuerxun is Chinese, but the Russian kind, which reminds me of a Mongolian girl I know who looks Chinese but speaks with a Russian accent. Very trippy. Anyway, it took about two and a half rounds for Palmer to finally find the tap out, and it came via a neck crank.

So now Harrison and Siler and Palmer have all earned enough experience points to level up, and they can choose another weapon proficiency plus two more spells. Or something like that.

PFL 4, y’all.

Cormier: Jones’ Legacy Is As Tainted As Lance Armstrong’s

Jon Jones is still sitting idle on the UFC sidelines as his team works to avoid a four year suspension from USADA over (another) failed drug test, this one on the eve of his second fight with Daniel Cormier. Jones ended up knocking Cormier out in brutal fashion, but the record books will forever list their rematch as a No Contest.

That doesn’t change how things really went down in the minds of many fans, or in the mind of Jones. Jon made that abundantly clear when the UFC’s Twitter account asked if Cormier could be considered the GOAT if he beats heavyweight champ Stipe Miocic at UFC 226.

”If he’s in the conversation, does that make me the motherf**king man?” Jones tweeted.

CBS Sports reached out to Cormier regarding the tweets, and for half a second the 205 pound champ seemed like he wasn’t going to engage.

”He doesn’t have a platform and I refuse to give him a platform,” Cormier replied before immediately giving him a platform. “He’s a nobody. He has been suspended again. He’s mired in controversy for drug abuse. Your issues are tied to steroids, performance enhancers. You don’t get a platform when you’re like that. It’s like me glorifying Lance Armstrong.”

And as far as Cormier is concerned, Jon’s accomplishments should be severely downgraded, just like Armstrong’s were once the truth of his PED usage came out.

“[Jones] won the fight but, hey, since USADA has gotten involved with the UFC, he only fought one time,” Cormier said. “He has had four fights scheduled. So he fought Ovince [Saint Preux] and he fought me but that second one was a no contest. The Ovince fight was the only time he fought and there was no controversy surrounding it. So I’m pretty sure there was some dirty stuff going on, that’s why the test results were all jacked up in December.”

Cormier is referencing a drug test result in the month leading up to their first fight at the end of 2014. Not only did Jones test positive for cocaine metabolites (which surprisingly enough are not banned outside of fight week), but his testosterone to epitestosterone levels were suspiciously low. Combine that with his future drug failures and it’s no wonder “DC” has written off Jones’ entire UFC career as illegitimate. Being able to sweep aside those two crushing losses is just an extra bonus.
