Jon Jones, Daniel Cormier Fight At UFC 178 Media Day And On Twitter

Jon “Bones” Jones and Daniel Cormier came to blows on Monday during a media day for September’s UFC 178 championship fight.

The two men stood forehead to forehead until Cormier pushed the champ, and all hell broke loose. Jones lunged at the challenger, both men rolled around on the ground, and were eventually pulled apart by their handlers and UFC representatives.

The whole scene was reminiscent of the Mike Tyson-Lennox Lewis press conference from 2002, albeit with a lot less crotch grabbing.

After the fracas, the fighters went after each other on Twitter.


For an extended version of the skirmish, there is some good footage over at SB Nation.
