UFC champ Jon Jones offers $1,500 reward for missing rare cat
Jon Jones has enough on his plate later this month in Baltimore, but now he has the stress of a missing pet to deal with, as well. Jones, the UFC’s light heavyweight champion, has offered a $1,500 reward for the return of Mufasa, a rare cat breed, the fighter told KRQE News in Albuquerque, N.M., where he trains at the Jackson-Winkeljohn MMA camp. Jones (19-1 MMA, 13-1 UFC) is preparing for his latest title defense later this month at UFC 172 against Glover Teixeira (22-2 MMA, 5-0 UFC) on April 26 in Baltimore. Mufasa, apparently named after the father lion in the Disney animated classic “The Lion King,” is about 20 pounds, Jones said. The cat is a cross between an African serval and a domestic house cat and is known as a Savannah cat.

Kajan Johnson vs. Tae Hyun Bang booked for UFC 174 in Vancouver
A successful Twitter campaign has landed “The Ultimate Fighter Nations: Canada vs. Australia” semifinalist Kajan Johnson an official UFC fight. Johnson suffered a knockout loss to teammate Chad Laprise in the “TUF” semifinal round, and fans were critical of the Team Canada coaching staff for their perceived favoritism of Laprise. Johnson’s supporters then used Twitter to badger UFC officials into giving him a fight. And it apparently worked. Johnson (19-10-1 MMA, 0-0 UFC) is now slated to fight fellow lightweight Tae Hyun Bang (16-8 MMA, 0-1 UFC) at UFC 174, officials today announced.
