Jon Jones controls his diet to avoid looking like Daniel Cormier

UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones has started talking smack at potential rival Daniel Cormier and this time he took a shot at DC’s body. Bones, who is probably on a diet in preparation for his upcoming title defense against Glover Teixeira, took it to his twitter account. According to the weight conscious champ, he avoids over eating for the fear of looking like Cormier.

“With that being said I love these people. their hospitality is first class nothing but hugs and smiles eating so much Ill look like DC soon. “ wrotes Jones on his Twitter.

Obviously, Cormier does not like it. He immediately answered right after learning the tweet.

“@JonnyBones it’s much easier to talk when you know theres two fights seperating us. Keep running ur mouth kid! Jon u can’t beat me!”

DC has been clamoring for a fight with Jones way before his UFC career. He already said his goodbye to the heavyweight division in his lopsided win over Roy Nelson at UFC 166.After that he announced that he will be officially dropping to 205 to challenge Bones for the title. That being said, it will be a long road for him before he lands a superfight with Jones.

Alexander Gustafsson has already been promised a rematch with Bones should he win against Little Nog early next year in London. Of course, that depends on the outcome of Jones’ title defense against Glover Teixeira. If both of them wins, Cormier will likely have to win 2 or matches before finally earning his much awaited fight against Jon Jones.

Phil Davis Beats Antonio Rogerio Nogueira at UFN 24

Though legendary Antonio Rogerio Nogueira was able to give Phil Davis all he could handle, the latter still won the recent UFC Fight Night 24.

Last Saturday’s UFC Fight Night 24 is an example of battle between youth and athleticism versus experience and technique. Fortunately for Phil Davis, he was able to surpass the power of Antonio Rogerio Nogueira. However, the latter made life difficult to the youngster in the early going.

The first round turned into a 15-minutes of back-and-forth battle of attempted takedowns from Phil Davis, and effectively shrugging it off by Antonio Rogerio Nogueira. But midway through the second frame, Phil Davis successfully employed a single-leg takedown to get his opponent to the canvas. He used the same technique in the third round, and he was able to control Antonio Rogerio Nogueira.

After the match, Phil Davis improved his MMA record to 9-0, showcasing his athleticism and wrestling technique that makes him a great UFC prospect. Nevertheless, he also showed that he can’t just waltz inside the Octagon and dominate a legend.

What are your thoughts in Phil Davis’ victory over Antonio Rogerio Nogueira? Let it be heard by leaving a comment.
