It looks like Daniel Cormier and Jon Jones just couldn't wait until September 27th to get their hands on each other.
Earlier today at a pre-fight media event in Las Vegas, where Jones and Cormier are set to fight in a sanctioned bout at UFC 178 next month, the 205lb champion and challenger squared off for what should have been nothing more than a chance for the press to snap a few photos. What it turned out to be was something far more physical.
Not long after they had traded blows in front of journalists, photographers and fans at the MGM Grand, Jon and DC took to Twitter to exchange some more shots:Â
I won't let another man get in my face and put his forehead against mine. I will react every time. @JonnyBones next time I will slap you.â€” Daniel Cormier (@dc_mma) August 4, 2014
Lol those baby punches from the bottom, I really hope you have more prepared than that for when I take you down againâ€” Jon Bones Jones (@JonnyBones) August 4, 2014
"The first day of my vacation and this happens," posted UFC president Dana White on Instagram, along with footage of the brawl.
