Jon Jones vs. Alexander Gustafsson 2 Official for UFC 178, September 27th in Toronto

Jon Jones will attempt to make his eighth light-heavyweight title defense at UFC 178 (September 27th; Air Canada Centre, Toronto), in a rematch with Alexander Gustafsson. UFC officials confirmed the booking last night. Jones vs. Gustafsson 2 will take place almost exactly a year after their first meeting at UFC 165*, which Jones won in a thrilling but somewhat controversial decision. Since then, Jones defeated Glover Teixeira in an utterly dominant five-round assault at UFC 172, and Gustafsson TKO’d Jimi Manuwa, handing the Nigerian-English slugger his first loss.

The lead-up to this fight has already been loaded with drama, as Jones seemed to be dragging his feet on signing the bout agreement to rematch Gustafsson, then tried to argue for a fight against Daniel Cormier instead. But Dana White put his foot down, and here we are. As Jones explained in a statement:

Jon Jones’s Latest Video Greeting to His Haters: ‘It’s My Career, Not Yours’


(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?

Jon Jones Still Hasn’t Signed Contract for Alexander Gustafsson Rematch, Wants Daniel Cormier Instead [UPDATED]


(“Yes, you…the tall kid in the back.” / Photo via MMAWeekly)

During a recent “UFC Embedded” video blog, we saw Dana White and Lorenzo Fertitta meet with Jon Jones‘s manager in order to lock down a rematch between Jones and top light-heavyweight contender Alexander Gustafsson. That footage was filmed two weeks ago, and so far, no progress has been made on the fight. Jones’s camp has refused to sign for undisclosed reasons, which probably have to do with money, timing, or both. Luckily, Daniel Cormier has figured out a solution to this stalemate:

“I know this will probably be unpopular,” Cormier told Franklin McNeil of SportsWorldNews.com. “But if [Jones] won’t sign, whether it be for money or a lack of wanting to fight the kid, I’ll fight Alexander Gustafsson. But it should be for the interim title…If they’re putting a belt on the line, I don’t care what date it is. It was never about Jones, I just want the title. Besides, it’ll work out better for [Jones]; he won’t have to fight both of us.”

Keep in mind that Cormier’s knee is a giant question mark right now, which puts his interim title fight suggestion squarely into “just sayin’ stuff” territory. Plus, the UFC usually creates interim titles as a last resort — not a couple months after a healthy champion’s last defense. Furthermore, Cormier’s tongue-in-cheek line that Jones wouldn’t have to fight both DC and Gustafsson is probably the best reason why the UFC wouldn’t pursue this plan.

Jon Jones Has a Message for All You Eye-Poke Haters…


(Props: MMA-Core)

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.

Jon Jones Goes Heel on Instagram, Trolls Phil Davis and Chuck Liddell


(Props: instagram.com/jonnybones)

The lead-up to Jon Jones‘s UFC 172 fight against Glover Teixeira was dominated by two basically-irrelevant stories — Phil Davis trying to start a trash-talk war with Jones, and Chuck Liddell’s dubious claim that he would have beaten Jones back in his prime. You can imagine Jones’s glee when Davis got some karmic comeuppance at the hands of Anthony Johnson, and Liddell was forced to watch his homeboy Glover get beat up in new and surprising ways.

At the UFC 172 post-fight press conference, Jones gave Anthony Johnson multiple high-fives for his work and said that Davis was off pouting somewhere. But still, more salt needed to be rubbed into Mr. Wonderful’s wounds. So last night, Jones released a quick highlight reel of Davis getting roughed up by Rumble, followed by a wordless appearance that communicates all it needs to. Jones’s caption is “Crumble me like a cookie?”

Jones also posted this photo of a depressed-looking Chuck Liddell, with the caption “Talking all that trash before the fight.. you mad bro?” The message is loud and clear — if Jones doesn’t have the chance to beat you in an actual fight, he will still kick you in the face on social media. Meanwhile, Anthony Johnson continues to be a super-nice guy, but who’s interested in that?

Armchair Matchmaker: UFC 172 Edition


(“Hate to say Bones told you so…” Photo via Getty.)

It wouldn’t be hyperbole to say that UFC 172 was easily the greatest card of 2014 thus far. With brilliant, jaw-dropping finishes from top-to-bottom and perhaps the most complete performance of Jon Jones’ career, UFC 172 was a faith-restoring night of fights to say the least, and one that dramatically altered the fates of those who competed on it.

But today, we look forward. While Jon Jones‘ victory over Glover Teixeira can only mean that a highly-anticipated rematch with Alexander Gustafsson is surely on the horizon (a rare instance of the MMA Gods actually granting us a wish with no strings attached *fingers crossed*), there are still several potential matchups worth discussing, so let’s see what the future holds for UFC 172′s biggest winners and losers…

Anthony Johnson: What can you say about “Rumble” that hasn’t already been said? He looked damn-near perfect against Phil Davis, shutting down the four-time NCAA Division I All-American’s takedown attempts with ease and making him look like even more of an amateur on the feet. After two rounds had passed, we were all left wondering how Davis was ever considered the favorite heading into this matchup, and when/if Johnson’s gas tank would expire. It never did, and in his first fight back in the UFC since 2012, Johnson firmly established himself as a top contender at 205 lbs.

Personally, I think “Rumble” should use this opportunity to finally call out GSP, but a match against the Ryan Bader-Rafael Cavalcante winner probably makes more sense from a logistical standpoint. Bader has become a weigh-station for future contenders over the years (and I say that with all due respect), so should he get past “Feijao” at UFC 174, he would make for a fine addition to Johnson’s highlight reel (again, with all due respect). And if Cavalcante emerges with the W, you’ve got yourself a slugfest for the ages right there.
