Daniel Cormier explains why he asked fans to give Jon Jones space after PED fallout
(https:)
Daniel Cormier could have gloated after news broke that Jon Jones tested positive for a banned substance in a UFC 214 pre-fight drug test. After all, the rivals have rarely hesitated to verbally tear into one another at any other point in their years-long series of disputes. Instead, the newly restored UFC light heavyweight champion responded with a sense of grace and class not often associated with the sport of mixed martial arts. Rather than kick Jones while he was down, Cormier went on Instagram last week and posted a message asking fans to leave the troubled Jones and his family alone. That simple action drew DC rave reviews. But on Monday’s edition of The MMA Hour, Cormier said he wasn’t looking to make some sort of sweeping gesture with the post.

UFC 217: Georges St-Pierre expected to call out Conor McGregor with win over Michael Bisping
(https:)
Former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre, at one time, was rumored to be in the running for a Conor McGregor super fight, back when “Notorious” was fooling around in the 170-pound division. While that potential pay-per-view (PPV) bonanza may have gone by the wayside as the power-punching Irishman gears up for his first title defense, he may find himself on the receiving end of a French-Canadian call out, assuming “Rush” can win his return fight.

Georges St-Pierre shrugs off Michael Bisping’s insults: ‘He’s a very angry person deep down’
(https:)
Georges St-Pierre and Michael Bisping couldn’t be further apart when it comes to their approach to hyping a fight. While the UFC middleweight champion has built his reputation pulling no punches to insult his opponents before they meet in the cage, St-Pierre has typically taken a more polite and thoughtful approach in the buildup to an event.
