As seen in this media footage the Jon Jones (the current UFC Light Heavy Weight Champion) and Daniel Cormier (the contender who will face off against Jones at UFC 178) come to blows at the UFC media event today. What started as a shove turned into an all out brawl that wrecked the entire stage.
After the incident the two appeared on ESPN Sports Center to discuss the aftermath. Their tone, as you can see from this video, was far more subdued but there’s no doubt many hard feeling between these two fighters.
How will these events affect the outcome of their upcoming bout at UFC 178? Will the UFC impose any sort of sanctions against the fighters for their apparently unprofessional conduct? Or was this merely a stunt geared at generating more interest in the fight?
