Update: Check out the verbal exchange that occurred between both men during an ESPN interview. Both men didn’t know the live microphones and camera were still on.
UFC 178’s Light Heavyweight Championship bout (which is taking place on September 27, 2014) will feature two of the finest MMA athletes in the UFC. Jon Jones, the champ, is getting prepped to deal with his newfound challenger Daniel Cormier. The hype machine is beginning to roll, which is why both future opponents stared each other down for the press during the UFC 178 media day.
Las Vegas got to see an early preview of this fight since Jones and Cormier’s short interaction led to a huge ballroom scuffle.
Check out the footage of this big brawl above. Dan White seemed to be quite “pleased” with the news and footage of this pre-UFC battle going down. We also have a interview between both men that went down on FOX Sports:
