UFC and it’s star athletes aren’t wasting any time in making use of the PR surrounding the events at the MGM Grand yesterday. Now video released of Jon Jones talking even more smack on ESPN2’s SportsNation, referring to Daniel Cormier’s “Baby Belly” and wishing “it” well has been released to Youtube.
Watching the video above it becomes even more painfully obvious how much everyone is milking this for what it’s worth. That being said we can only hope that the physical pounding during the fight will be even half as intense as the verbal bashing going back and forth between these to athletes.
You can also check out twitter reactions from other professional MMA personalities in a story we released earlier today.
UFC 178 is set to take place September 27, 2014 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. The fight will be headlined by a title fight for the UFC World Light Heavyweight championship between Jon Jones (the defending champ) and Daniel Cormier (the contender).
What do you think of this side of Jon Jones? Is this the behavior of a champ or a bully? Does this make him more compelling to watch or is it a turn off? Let us know your thoughts in the comments or through social media!
On a side note: Does smack talk increase PPV points? One might wonder. . .
