Jon Jones, UFC light heavyweight champ was stripped of his title on Tuesday. UFC president Dana White released a statement to Fox sports stating that the reason for taking the title and suspending him indefinitely was due to jones fleeing the scene of a car accident. Jones’ manager said that a response would be released when jones was ready to confront the public eye about this situation. Fans like Mark Ahn know that Jones did release a tweet stating that he has got soul searching to do and that he feels bad for letting everyone down.
In light of this tragic situation, Daniel Cormier who recently lost to Jon Jones for the title will be able to reclaim a chance to earn it back. He will take jones spot in the main event UFC 187 against Anthony Johnson at MGM Grand Garden on May 23rd. now whoever wins this fight will be deemed full title champion and not just an interim.
Returning to Jon Jones who has received several chances with getting into trouble threw out his career, including failing a drug test for cocaine, fighting an opponent in the MGM lobby, and driving while intoxicated in 2012. Enough is enough and further action needs to be taken to ensure that jones doesn’t actually kill someone one day by letting his actions slip by with a slap on the wrist. Jones is a man that fights for a living, letting him get away with these things is a recipe for disaster.
The UFC 184 card was criticized for the lack of male fighters in the main event and co-main event. However, the women delivered in a big way. Before we get to the final two fights on the card, we should analyze the rest of the pay per view.
Fans at Anastasia Date (Askmen.com) know that the first three fights on the main card did not go the distance. This is usually a good sign for the blood thirsty fans out there. Tony Ferguson started the night off right, and he submitted Gleison Tibau with a rear naked choke. Alan Jouban vs. Richard Walsh was up next. Alan Jouban attacked Walsh with kicks and punches. Jouban stopped Walsh early with a big combination.
The third fight on the card was a must win for both competitors. Josh Koscheck took on Jake Ellenberger, and their careers were both on the line. The first round was close, but Jake ended the fight with a choke in the second round. Ellenberger keeps his job, and Josh Koscheck will most likely be cut by the UFC.
Finally, we get to the co-main event. Holly Holm fought Raquel Pennington in a very close fight that could have gone either way. The judges gave the fight to Holly Holm by split decision. The main event between Ronda Rousey and Cat Zingano ended as expected. Rousey submitted Zingano via armbar in the first round.
