Jon Jones lashes out after questioning from Michael Bisping following UFC 232

Jon Jones lashes out after questioning from Michael Bisping following UFC 232

The Nevada State Athletic Commission subsequently couldn't clear Jones in time to fight Gustafsson, forcing a change of venue. This time he kept his focus on a possible trilogy with the current heavyweight champ. Same crown same reign new faces more pain.

Cormier remains the defending champion at heavyweight, but Jones is not interested in stepping up to become a two-weight strap-holder. The 41-year-old has several million dollars in the bank and only does things because he wants to. He's also a smart enough businessman to know that his price is at an all-time high. The reality is that there are few who have the mainstream appeal that Lesnar possesses and he'll leverage that to put himself in the best financial position possible. I would look for him to make some adjustments. So it makes sense.

"To whoever the powers may be were at FOX, he [said], 'Is that motherf*cker Michael Bisping going to be asking questions again, with his f*cking dumb sh*t, ' and all this and I was like, 'Ohhh yeah'".

'As of right now with the Lesnar thing, that's kinda still up in the air, ' Cormier told MMA Fighting.

Last Sunday, the seven-year-old girl was senselessly killed in a drive-by shooting in Houston , as her family still seeks answers. Hopkins posted the following on social media today: "When I see Jazmine Barnes' face, I see my own daughter".


Cormier had given up his belt ahead of UFC 232, refusing to be stripped of the title as he explained: "I am not going to be stripped of the belt that I've defended with my all for three and a half years". Or, Cormier could postpone his retirement as White thinks he will do, take on Jones for a third time in his next fight and then fight Lesnar later in the year.

How do you think the new UFC light heavyweight champion would fair against Daniel Cormier, Brock Lesnar and Stipe Miocic?

Bisping has defended his decision to confront Jones on his suspicious drug test results, as he said on his podcast: "I don't care about asking hard questions, and I asked Jon Jones some questions, which apparently he didn't like, because after the fight...we interviewed him again, and when we were on commercial break he was talking f***ing shit". It's definitely good to be in the Brock Lesnar business, especially if you're Brock Lesnar.
