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.View Article Source »
Daniel Cormier wants to fight Gustafsson before a title fight against Jon Jones
Javier Mendez, the chief trainer of Daniel Cormier has revealed that they are looking for a fight against Alexander Gustafsson for DC’s light heavyweight debut. Mendez believes that a win over Gus will legitimize Cormier’s shot at Jon Jones’ title. He also added that if DC were to beat Gustafsson, then they will clearly have an idea of the kind of fight he will put up against Bones.
Gustafsson, of course, is coming off from a Fight of the Night performance against Jon Jones. Gus may have fallen short on that night but he gave the champion the toughest challenge of his career.
Mendez also gave his take on the potential matchup of his fighter against the reigning light heavyweight champion. The AKA leader admits that he is not 100 percent sure on Cormier’s chances against Jones but believes that DC can take him down at will. Jones has been only taken down once in his UFC career, and that happened in his recent fight against Gus.
“I don’t think he’ll win (against Jones) easily, and I’m not 100-percent sure he’s going to win. I’m 100-percent sure that it’s going to be a hell of a fight and it’s going to be the biggest challenge of Jones’ life. Cormier’s going to meet an individual who’s got the height and knows how to use it really well. But Jones is going to meet a wrestler like he’s never faced before. Now Jones has got to be concerned about going on his back. He can’t be thinking about, ‘Okay, it’s going to be difficult to take me down.’ Now he 100 percent has a legit reason to be careful what he does, because he’s going to be on his back whether he likes it or not.”View Article Source »
Roy Nelson is delusional according to UFC president Dana White
It’s no secret that UFC president Dana White and TUF 10 winner Roy Nelson are not very fond of each other. White however, dismissed that notion that he has ill feelings towards the TUF winner. Instead, he insists that he tried his best to like Nelson but it is the latter’s words that created the rough relation between them.
“Contrary to popular belief, I try so hard to like Roy Nelson. It’s like I saw him backstage before I came out to talk to you guys. I was like, ‘What’s up Roy? You looked good. You lost weight,’ and this and that. Then I come out and hear the stupid s–t he said to you guys right before I walk out there.”
The Baddest man on the Planet: Cain Velasquez defeated Junior dos Santos in their rubber match at UFC 166
Houston, Texas – The much anticipated trilogy between Cain Velasquez and Junior dos Santos turned out pretty similar to their rematch, albeit with more definitive results. The 32 year old champ played the perfect game; he dominated dos Santos in all the aspects of the fight, even in the striking department, where Cigano supposedly had an advantage. Just like their last fight, Velasquez negated the heavy hands of dos Santos by backing him up into the cage. The rest of the fight played out the same scenario; Velasquez controlling dos Santos in the clinch while chipping at him with dirty boxing. Cigano eventually succumbed due to the accumulation of punishment in the 5th round, he fell face first in to the canvass after a failed front choke attempt. Seeing Cigano’s vulnerable state, Referee Herb Dean decided to put a halt to the contest with 3:09 remaining in the final round.Read the rest of the article »

Roy Nelson wants a shot at the heavyweight belt if he gets by Cormier in this weekend's PPV event
It appears that a number of UFC 166 fighters are looking for a shot at gold once they emerge victorious in the weekend’s PPV event and Big Country would be the latest man to make such claims. Nelson, who has been constantly a top rated fighter, has expressed his interest in a possible title shot if he were to defeat Daniel Cormier in their upcoming bout.
“DC is top of the food chain. The only other person that’s before him is dos Santos and dos Santos is already fighting for the belt. So I look at DC as a guy to beat and you get the belt shot. If I can beat DC, I’m fighting for the belt next.”
DC will have to deal with Big Country's beard once they lock horns in UFC 166
Daniel Cormier has been very vocal about wanting Roy Nelson to shave his beard before their fight in UFC 166. He made it official just a few weeks ago when he filed a formal complaint in Texas Athletic Commission regarding his opponent’s trademark bush. The former Olympic wrestler stated that Nelson’s beard might be giving him an advantage particularly when fighting at close range and he wanted it to be shaved or at least trimmed.Read the rest of the article »
Daniel Cormier doubts the longevity of Roy Nelson's legendary chin
Roy Nelson arguably has the best chin in the whole roster of UFC. Big Country has proven it in his entire UFC career; he has managed to stay on his feet while taking the best shots of hard hitting heavyweights like Fabricio Werdum, Frank Mir, Stipe Miocic and Junior dos Santos. Nelson may have lost all that fights but none can argue the toughness that he displayed in those one-sided beatdowns. He has only been stopped once in his career, and that happened more than 5 years ago at the hands of former UFC heavyweight champ Andrei Arlovski.Read the rest of the article »
