Daniel Cormier responds to new of Jon Jones reduced suspension

Daniel Cormier

Daniel Cormier isn’t thrilled as you might imagine. He said as much.

Daniel Cormier was asked about Jon Jones and his reduced suspension tonight on UFC Tonight. Now mind you, DC is at work at the time, and probably wanted to say plenty more than he did. His frustrations, however, were not hard to spot.  Here is an exert from what he had to say.

“I’m the UFC double champion. I have bosses in the back and I’m talking about this guy because I have too. I’ve moved past that guy. I went about my business. I went and won another title. Now this guy’s suspension is up, so we’ll see what happens.

I think people get excited, people get excited about the prospect of us fighting again, but I’ve got a fight with Brock Lesnar. Why would I look back? Why would I look back to Jones now when I’ve got a fight? Obviously as a competitor I want to fight the guy whose beat me twice, but I’ve got a fight. Why go back? I’ve got a bigger fight with Brock Lesnar, why should I go back?”

Daniel Cormier also had a message for USADA. Bottom line, he’s disappointed. You can see his response below thanks to this Tweet by Fox Sports UFC.

Michael Bisping actually asked Max if he was ok during an interview, Max wasn’t.

We’re all still shaken over the news that Max Holloway has had to drop out of a fight for the third consecutive time. He was showing concussion symptoms and obviously, it’s not safe to fight like that.  We wish Max the absolute best sorting this out and a speedy recovery. The news is sad for Brian Ortega, but he’s taken in stride saying when the time is right, they’ll handle business. Michael Bisping noticed Max seemed off during an interview and broached the subject with him.

People close to the situation have said Max has seemed off all week, and when he was a guest of UFC Tonight it was pretty well on display. In fact, Michael Bisping commented on it and asked Max if he was ok. Here’s the video, courtesy of Luke Thomas of MMA Fighting.

Dana White has said he doesn’t have a clear idea of what exactly is wrong with Max, but indicated he would not be fighting “anytime soon.”

Miesha Tate

Miesha Tate referred to Ronda’s statement as “asinine” Time heals all wounds, or so they say. Apparently, that doesn’t prove the case when you’re talking about Ronda Rousey and Miesha Tate. They can’t seem to let their past rivalry go, despite neither of them being involved in MMA anymore as active competitors.
