One-Punch Man? Watch Jones Flaunt New KO Power (Video)

Dread it, run from it, destiny still arrives.

Remember last week when longtime striking coach Brandon Gibson was telling the MMA media how Jon Jones was developing one-punch knockout power and we all LOL’d and were like, “Okay Mr. Grape Buster.”

Well, looks like Gibson may have been right.

The former UFC light heavyweight champion appears to be gearing up (no pun intended) for his Octagon return and during his time away from cage fighting, “Bones” has been working on his knockout power.

Just listen to those pads:

Yikes.

Jones is currently suspended for flunking his UFC 214 drug test back in July 2017. His license to compete was also pulled in California and “Bones” would need to rectify that before getting cleared by any other stateside commission.

That said, the Jones camp expects a 2018 return and there is currently an open slot in the UFC 230 pay-per-view (PPV) main event for the promotion’s November return at Madison Square Garden in New York City.

Which is when this light heavyweight should be ready to compete.

Video: ‘UFC 25 Years in Short’ Trailer Will Give You The Chills

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is gearing up to premiere its upcoming short film documentary series which will highlight the promotion’s growth over the last 25 years.

From Royce Gracie’s dominance early on in the dark days of mixed martial arts (MMA), to Ronda Rousey’s historic run as UFC’s first ever female champion, “25 Years in Short” will highlight all of the company’s biggest fights and accomplishments.

From the official YouTube description:

2018 marks twenty-five years of the UFC, and in celebration of our silver anniversary, we’re presenting a groundbreaking, 25-part series of original, documentary short films. UFC 25 YEARS IN SHORT brings together an award-winning team of documentary filmmakers, to tell twenty-five captivating stories, one for each year of the UFC’s extraordinary history. UFC 25 YEARS IN SHORT premieres this September, only on UFC Fight Pass.

It has a “30 for 30” feel to it.

Indeed, UFC has paved the way for the sport of MMA to become the powerhouse it is today, thanks in large part to company president Dana White and former owners Lorenzo and Frank Fertitta, who sold the company to WME-IMG in a staggering $ 4 billion deal a few short years ago.

Now under the Endeavor umbrella, UFC continues to set the bar for all other promotions to follow in its footsteps. And while there have been a few speed bumps along the way, the promotion continues to try and out-do itself year after year.

In celebration of it’s 25th anniversary, the promotion will return where it all began, as it is set to stage UFC Fight Night 139 on Nov. 10, 2018 in Denver, Colorado, which will be 25 years since UFC 1 took place in Denver back on November 12, 1993.

The event is set to feature a featherweight showdown between Frankie Edgar and Chan Sung Jung, as well as welterweight showdown between Donald Cerrone and Mike Perry.

“25 Years in Short” will premier this September only on UFC Fight Pass.

Video: Cardboard ‘Answer’ Leads To Online Kerfuffle

Former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) lightweight champion, Frankie Edgar, probably thought he was doing a good deed when he signed the cardboard cutout of himself for the patrons of Rivolis Restaurant at the Jersey shore, where “The Answer” was born and raised.

Then his manager, Ali Abdelaziz, got involved and it all went to pot.

It seems Abdelaziz doesn’t want his client being used to promote a private business without some form of compensation, whereas the owner insists the doppelgänger was not only approved by Edgar ahead of an onsite autograph signing, but liked by the current featherweight contender upon return visits.

Have a look:

Abdelaziz is no stranger to controversy, having been removed from his position in the since-rebranded World Series of Fighting (WSOF) promotion for reportedly acting as both matchmaker and fighter manager.

He’s also been known to brawl with fans when the situation calls for it.

Sounds like Rivolis is removing the cardboard Edgar and it may end up being auctioned off for charity. Now, you too, can own a piece of MMA history because this is exactly the kind of story that encapsulates our wonderful industry.
