On Monday, Jon Jones and Daniel Cormier went on SportsCenter for a thought-provoking interview about the
totally awesome! regrettable press-conference brawl that had gone down just hours beforehand. Though Cormier fired some heated barbs during the segment (“He’s a punk, he’s a liar, he’s a whole bunch of things he shouldn’t be proud about being”), Jones decided to do the interview as his Drowsy Autistic Guy character, which could still use some workshopping, honestly.
It turns out that the real heat came after the segment was officially over. In this incredibly uncomfortable footage (via MMAJunkie), Jones asks Cormier, “Hey pussy, are you still there?”, which leads Cormier to marvel at how fake Jones is, and how he can turn into a completely different person when the cameras are off. Then it gets really good:
Cormier: You are the fucking scum of the earth, you are a terrible human being, but you can sure turn it on, huh?
Jones: Thank you.
Cormier: Gaahh, fuck. I wish they would let me next door so I can spit in your fucking face.
Jones: [long pause] You know I would absolutely kill you if you ever did something like that, right?Read More DIGG THIS

Nice work, but it’ll never top the original.
“Did I just let you talk? Did I just let you talk? Did I just let you talk? Did I just let you talk? Did I just let you talk? Did I just let you talk? Did I just let you talk? Did I just let you talk? Did I just let you talk?” — 2014 Quote of the Year candidate. Check out the full interview spot here, via Fox Sports Live.

Inspirational for him, I mean — not so much for you or anybody else.
- Jon Jones just picked up a nasty gash in training…
- …and Daniel Cormier promises to put his elbows on it.

(I like his little laugh at the end. Solid heel-move.)
Just as we friggin’ predicted, UFC light-heavyweight champion Jon Jones shot a quick Instagram video responding to all the jackass fans who have accused him of “ducking” Alexander Gustafsson, simply because he’d rather fight Daniel Cormier in his next belt defense. And then, just like last time, he quickly took the video down. (Luckily, BleacherReport spotted this existing copy on YouTube.)
Basically, Jones feels that his request to fight an undefeated former Olympic wrestler and Strikeforce champion doesn’t exactly make him a coward, and hey, it’s his career anyway so STFU. All good points. And honestly, going after the fans is a pretty good idea as well if Bones is really trying to build himself up as a villain figure. As our own Matt Saccaro put it, “Jon Jones should be posting dozens more hate videos directed at fans, not deleting them.”
Your thoughts? Any idea why Jon looks so squinty?Read More DIGG THIS

Following his Instagram trolling of Phil Davis, UFC light-heavyweight champ Jon Jones is now aiming his brand-new Internet heel persona at you, the crybaby fans who didn’t appreciate his masterful Muay Thai-style eye-pokes at UFC 172. And so, Jones has entered the “eatin’ y’all food, leavin’ dishes” stage of his public life. I support it. Some fans are going to hate this guy no matter what he does, so you might as well steer into the skid, so to speak.
Note: This video was originally uploaded to Jon’s Instagram account, but then he deleted before it resurfaced on YouTube. Check it out while it lasts.Read More DIGG THIS

(Props: YouTube.com/JonJones. Fight starts at the 13:50 mark, but it’s worth it to watch the entrances, just to see Jackson and Jones walk out to those obviously patched-in nü-metal tracks, I guess because the UFC couldn’t secure replay rights on YouTube for the songs they actually walked out to. It’s hilariously jarring. Couldn’t they find generic rap tracks to include for situations like this?)
After winning the UFC light-heavyweight championship in March 2011 with his demolition of Mauricio Rua, 24-year-old Jon Jones attempted his first title defense in September at UFC 135 in Denver, against former champion Quinton Jackson. And for the second title fight in a row, Jones gave nothing and took everything. Over four rounds, Bones picked his shots and wore Rampage down, confounding Jackson with his unorthodox kicks and elbows, and clowning ‘Page whenever the inspiration struck. (Skip to 31:08 for an all-time classic.)
After winning the first three rounds handily, Jones closed the curtains in the fourth frame, taking Jackson down with ease then finishing him with a rear-naked choke. It was the first time Jackson was ever stopped in the UFC. To put it lightly, aging legends have never really performed well against Jon Jones, and Dan Henderson might not fare any better at UFC 151 — that is, if Hendo actually makes it to the fight. There are some nasty rumors swirling around right now…we’ll update you if they turn out to be legit.Read More DIGG THIS

At this point, everything that Jon Jones has to say about his rivalry with Rashad Evans has been said (and said, and said). But with less than a week remaining until their looooong-awaited showdown, we wanted to get a better sense of Bones’s mindset heading into his third light-heavyweight belt-defense at UFC 145. CagePotato video-correspondent Sal Mora spent a few minutes with the champ at his Jackson’s MMA homebase in Albuquerque for an exclusive fight-week interview that you can watch after the jump. Some highlights…
- On the possibility of a reconciliation with Evans after the fight: ”I honestly don’t know what will go on after the fight, but I really don’t have any interest in becoming friends with Rashad again. I’m not here to make friends, I’m here to do a job.”
- On moving to heavyweight: “I did ask Dana White, ‘Can I get a fight at heavyweight at the end of this year?’ and he told me that he didn’t think that was best for me right now. I’m totally okay with where I’m at and competing at the light-heavyweight division. I think there’s a lot of great competition left…I’m sure guys like Lyoto [Machida] are gonna be coming back around for their rematches too, so everything’s going according to plan.”Read More DIGG THIS
