Jon Jones could be the dumbest guy I know. Just yesterday I wrote that Dana White claimed Jones was ducking Alexander Gustafsson. My thought was to reserve judgment until we heard from Jones—after all, this wouldn’t be the first time White has massaged the facts to lure a fighter into signing a deal or a fight. (more…)

Dana White isn’t pleased at all that Jon Jones hasn’t signed the contract to fight Alexander Gustafsson yet. They are tentatively scheduled to fight a rematch sometime this fall. When asked what the delay was in setting a firm date for the fight, White said, “ask Jon (more…)

Phil Davis has quite the gas tank when it comes to talking about champion Jon Jones. It seems as though when Davis found out he wasn’t all that close to being the top contender at LHW, he turned up the heat on his trash talk. Now he’s claiming Jones is running from him and others. (more…)

Richie Incognito? (more…)

We’ve been talking about the light heavyweight division around here for quite a while now. For quite a while now, the division’s “top” fighters have looked like a list of former champions, years removed from their primes. With that being said, a fresh new contender has become quite a commodity. And, according to Jones, the UFC intends to protect that commodity by letting (more…)

Well we thought Jon Jones vs. Glover Teixeira was all set to headline the Super Bowl show—UFC 169—in February. It even appeared on the UFC’s website. I guess the joke’s on us, cuz that ain’t happening now, according to Dana White.
Apparently the UFC media team jumped the gun a little. White grabbed (more…)
