Daniel Cormier Injured, Jon Jones Now Faces Ovince St Preux at UFC 197


(“For those that think it’s that easy to matchmake.” via the Jackson-Wink Twitter)

With the UFC set to hold two of the most stacked cards in promotional history in the coming weeks – UFC 198 and UFC 200 — there’s been an overwhelming feeling that shit was all but destined to hit the fan in one capacity or another. “Conor McGregor suffers another ACL tear.” “Nate Diaz shot backstage at Snoop Dogg concert.” “Fabricio Werdum retires amidst actual prostitution scandal.” These were all headlines that we could have seen coming over the weekend, because this sport is nothing if not an unpredictable circus.

What you might not expect, however, is that the bad luck that always finds its way to MMA would trickle down to an unrelated fight card, like say, UFC 197. Which, with the MMA Gods being the vengeful, sadistic asshole that they are, is of course what happened.

VIDEO: Jon Jones Cited in ANOTHER Traffic Violation, Calls Officer a “F*cking Liar” [UPDATED]


(Jon Jones: Turning the entire world into Daniel Cormier fans, one police officer at a time.)

We may be relatively early into the new year, but at this point, it would be safe to declare that Jon Jones might have The “Really? You’re Just Gonna Keep Doing That Shit That Gets You in All That Trouble?” Award a.k.a. “The Koppenhaver” locked up for this year’s Potato Awards.

Seemingly not satisfied with the pair of DUI-related car accidents he’s already been involved in, the former light heavyweight champion was nabbed yet again for speeding and driving without a license, registration, or insurance at the beginning of the year. While most of us would have probably accepted our shortcomings as a driver and hung up our keys by this point, Jon Jones is not most of us. As such, “Bones” was cited YET AGAIN last week for a handful of vehicle-related offenses, then proceeded to verbally berate the officer who pulled him over.

Jon Jones Just Cannot Stop Being an Idiot Behind the Wheel

Following Jon Jones‘ most recent traffic-related mishap — which saw “Bones” break a pregnant woman’s arm in a 3 car accident, flee the scene, get stripped of his belt, slapped with a 6-month suspension from the UFC and 18 months of probation — it seemed as if the troubled champion maybe, finally, had seen the err of his ways. He spoke with yoots about the dangers of…being a moron, I think, and attempted to explain himself in a lengthy interview with Ariel Helwani. He seemed remorseful…honest to God remorseful.

Or at least, that’s how it appeared. Cut to end of last month, when a clean and sober Jones still managed to find himself on the wrong end of the law do to, you guessed it, a vehicle-related offense.

[VIDEO] Jon Jones Finally Speaks About Accident, Suspension, + Vitor Belfort’s “Sketchy” UFC 152 Drug Test


(While not without his faults, Jones remains a much better role model than Peyton Manning.) 

It has been an…eventful six months for former light heavyweight champion Jon Jones, or at least, that’s how he describes them in his recent interview with Ariel Helwani. I’ll spare you all the readily available details, but suffice it to say, Jones has screwed up, repeatedly, and it’s cost him nearly everything.

But finally, it appears the maybe, just maybe, his past mistakes are having an effect on his present mindset. With his UFC suspension now lifted and his court case settled, Jones has rededicated himself to recapturing his belt, and the results thus far have been astounding. He may have a long way to go still to earn back our respect, but with the lengthy interview after the jump, he’s at least taking the first step and accepting the blame for what he’s done.

Jon Jones Swallows Entire Horse, Announces Official Return Date via Instagram


(GOOD GAWD. via Jones’ Instagram.)

Good afternoon, Nation. After a much-needed vacation, it feels good to be back.

As a matter of fact, that’s probably a sentiment being shared by former light heavyweight champ Jon Jones right about now, what with him recently being reinstated into the UFC and all. As you might’ve noticed via the Instagram post above, it appears that Jones has spent his involuntary off-time following the Alistair Overeem diet of horse meat, push-ups, the meat of horses, and even more push-ups. Seriously, dude looks YOKED.

But if the idea of Jon Jones 2.0 (UberJones?) wasn’t already scary enough, the troubled G.O.A.T also took to Instagram last night to announce the date that he will return to the octagon.

UFC Reinstates Jon Jones a Mere Six Months After His Hit-and-Run Accident


(Cheer up Jon, today’s gonna be a bright, bright, sun-shiny day!”)

Jon Jones is not a good person. It’s something that he’s demonstrated at nearly every turn — first when he decided to drive drunk and subsequently total his car with two passengers onboard, then when he decided to…drive drunk and/or stoned and subsequently total his car by smashing it into a pregnant woman. Did I mention that he fled the scene in that second instance?

But Jon Jones does happen to be a GREAT fighter, and that’s all the UFC really cares about. I don’t mean to say that as if they shouldn’t. Here’s an organization that re-hired Thiago Silva after he battered his wife and had an armed standoff with police, glossed over the facts of Anthony Johnson‘s domestic abuse case(s), and unflinchingly booked Reza Madadi a fight the moment he was released from prison for his role in an aggravated burglary. If Charles Barkley doesn’t have to be a role model to play basketball, then Jon Jones sure as Hell doesn’t have to pass basic decency standards to bash someone’s head in.

As such, the UFC has decided in their infinite wisdom that today, just 6 months after Jones was involved in said hit-and-run and just a third of the way into the 18-month probation he was sentenced to, would be a great day to officially end his suspension.

UFC 187: A Complete A-to-Z Preview


(This seems like a good a time as any to remind you that this is a thing that exists.)

By Nasir Jabbar 

Nation, UFC 187 is approaching us, and what was once being touted as one of the greatest cards in Zuffa history is now simply “a very good one.” The card took some bumps and bruises — quite literally when original UFC 187 headliner Jon Jones broke a pregnant lady’s arm during his now infamous hit-and-run (too soon?) — but nonetheless, there’s still two title fights and a few important match-ups to determine the next line of challengers to look forward too.

So you know the drill, instead of the same ol’ recycled text recapping each fighter’s recent matches and predicting how they will win this weekend, I’ve compiled an A-to-Z list previewing each and every aspect of UFC 187. Join me?

The Fall of Jon Jones: The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly


(via Getty.)

By Scott Johnson

As everyone reading this already knows by now, the UFC Light Heavyweight championship has been vacated due to a recent hit and run incident involving Jon Jones  that left a pregnant woman with a broken arm and other injuries. The news comes as…well, not very shocking to anyone that has been paying attention to the behavior of the former champion and it seems that his history of bad behavior has finally caught up to him as the UFC has stripped him of his title, removed him from their rankings and have “indefinitely suspended” him from competition.

Today we’re going to take a look at the effects that this incident has had in a fun segment that I’m stealing from former CP alumni: The Good, The Bad and The Ugly.
