Sponsor claims Jon Jones and Daniel Cormier nearly came to blows at World MMA Awards

You know the old saying, "Leave it all in the cage." Well, Jon Jones and Daniel Cormier nearly left it all in the street after a brief scuffle at the World MMA Awards.


The general consensus is that sooner or later, Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Light Heavyweight Champion Jon Jones and undefeated Strikeforce Heavyweight Grand Prix winner Daniel Cormier are going to fight inside the Octagon.

And, had cooler heads not prevailed, it would have been a rematch from their 2011 rumble at the World MMA Awards.

That's the story from Todd Rexx, owner of TrauMMA Combat Apparel and former sponsor of Cormier. Rexx claims he befriended Jones at the annual awards show, where the conversation eventually turned to the possibility of a future business relationship.

Or not.

According to his appearance on MMA Roasted (via MMA.tv), "Bones" told Rexx he wasn't going to (expletive) with any company that was in cahoots with "DC."

So at that point Jon Jones and Malki Kawa are getting into a limo, and Daniel walked outside and grabbed Jon by the arm, and spun him around and was like, "Dude, you got f-- problem with me?"
And I was like, "Oh my God."
So they are facing off.
Jon said "Yo, I think that you, King Mo, and Rashad Evans, ya'll full of yourselves."
He just talked s-- about Daniel. They were like in each other's face.
Daniel was like, "Motherf-- you don't know anything about me. I'm a grown ass man. This all started when you claimed to be this wrestling aficionado, and when you met me, you didn't know who I was. Motherf-- you knew who I was. I knew every wrestler when I was coming up."

Cormier has been campaigning for a fight against Jones for well over a year, even threatening to put the champ "on his back" once the cage door closes. Unless "Bones" makes good on this promise, it's a fight that would require the former Olympian to drop down to 205 pounds, which he would be willing to do over the course of a full season of The Ultimate Fighter (TUF).

Jones, however, wasn't interested in wasting time with a "relative unknown" like Cormier, and instead opted to coach TUF against former middleweight Chael Sonnen. "DC," meanwhile, finally made his UFC debut with a unanimous decision win over Frank Mir last month in San Jose.

If they can't find a way to settle this thing inside the cage, there's always the parking lot of this year's World MMA Awards.

Seems legit.

I'm gonna go out on a limb here and say that didn't happen.

Bones should move up to HW for a one-time fight with Cormier while the LHW division produces some more contenders.

DC is a top 5, possibly top 3 HW, that's a tall order for someone's first fight at a higher weight class.

Oh the drama. How does this fake crap even end up in the "news"?

He's got "three" in Machida, Anderson Silva and Gustaf and frankly Tex, Hendo, and Davis could fight for the title and I doubt people would be crying "Dan Hardy".

If Cormier wanted to fight Bones so badly he would have slimmed down and gone to lhw already. Instead he is looking at fighting a fatass who doesn't train seriously.
