Kicking them while they're down. Jon Jones took at shot at his rival in Alexander Gustafsson immediately after his TKO loss to Anthony Johnson, but like many of the UFC light heavyweight champ's tweets, it was deleted shortly after.

Anthony Johnson could be last man standing between Jon Jones and heavyweight
Anthony Johnson’s work in Stockholm wasn’t so much a thing of beauty as it was of destruction. The interloper was cracking mountain faces with those punches he was throwing. Gustafsson, who had come in planning to work the delicacies of the striking game, was off his moorings from the first jab. All it took was an accidental eye-poke to signal the end. Right after that Johnson landed a right hand that sent Gustafsson’s title shot fleeting like a genie from the bottle, while 30,000 people at the Tele2 Arena jumped in unison to try and catch its tail.

Let's all hope Diaz vs. Silva is a big sell & we start getting more fights between weight classes.
I understand why the UFC is hesitant to book fights with guys from different weight classes, but at the same time, I feel cheated for never seeing a prime GSP fight Silva. I understand why GSP was hesitant to fight Silva at 185 (If that is true) but just think of how big that fight would have been for everyone? I bet if the money was right, both fighter's would have made it into the cage, and what fan would have not paid to watch that fight? Would you have lost respect for either fighter regardless of outcome?
