The heated rivalry between Jon Jones and Daniel Cormier reached a boiling point in Las Vegas today. Today commenced the media tours for the big UFC 178: Jones vs. Cormier PPV in Las Vegas, Nevada, and those who were in attendance at the MGM Grand were treated to a good ol' brawl between the light heavyweight champion Jones and the undefeated challenger Cormier. In the middle of it all was UFC director of PR Dave Sholler, who had the unfortunate and unexpected task of trying to separate the two. MMA Fighting captured the whole sequence, which you can view in the video player at the top of the post.

Just dumb on Jones part. Already had stitches to close a cut and no do something retarded like this. Then DC's knee as well. Just nonsense

Dam. Well it didn't look staged
Man if someone pushed me like that it would be on.

Doesn't matter is Dana would be there. Same shit would happen.

That media scuffle may have added 150 k in ppv buys more

To be fair, if I were DC, I wouldn't want that nasty looking beard on my face either, so clearly shoving him was justified!

That said, I think it's funny how Jones doesn't even really seem to care that it came to blows. Now he's attacking DC on twitter and posting instagram videos saying DC sucks and criticizing his TDD. I imagine when 3 or 4 people are already pulling you in one direction and you add a guy like JBJ trying to throw you to the ground it only further compromises your already compromised balance.

Maybe I'm just hating more on Jones than DC because I'm not really a fan of the guy, but I feel like there is more blame to go on him than DC. As a champion you're expected to conduct yourself in a certain way and Jones didn't. Was DC out of line shoving him? Yeah, I'd say so. That said, I don't think a shove begets a punch. He could have just smiled and walked away, or engaged in some not so friendly trash talk. Not only that, the guy just got stitches a few days ago! Why is he engaging in a brawl and risking getting it opened and having to pull out of the fight? Not only that, these guys are paid to fight! Why are they fighting for free and risking injury when they both KNOW they'll be getting paid to do that here before too long. I understand that there is bad blood between them, but when you're a professional fighter there is a time and a place to fight other professional fighters, and that is in the cage.

All that said, I'm now even more excited to tune into this fight and hopefully witness DC put a beatdown on JJ like he did Hendo!

That's not Anik it's Dave Sholler, president of public relations.

I like how Jones said he took DC down and beat him up. They fell off the stage and DC was moving backwards. If Jones thinks he's gonna take him down easy he's in for a rude awakening.
