Another Day, Another Crazy UFC Press Conference Video
UFC President Dana White must have his fighters attending mandatory acting school these days, or at least require them to watch the Republican debates.
No Conor McGregor this time, but there were still plenty of R-rated insults flying at the UFC Unstoppable Press Conference in Las Vegas on Friday. This one was to showcase the fighters in several UFC upcoming events.
On Saturday at the MGM Grand in Vegas, and the two almost came to blows during the photo op on Thursday. On Friday, several fighters shared the stage and the sparring was all verbal, and much of it was hilarious.
Among the headliners on stage were Junior dos Santos and Ben Rothwell (UFC Fight Night 86 in Croatia); Khabib Nurmagomedov and Tony Ferguson (UFC on FOX 19 in Tampa, Fla.); light heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier and former champ Jon Jones (UFC 197 main event in Las Vegas); flyweight champ Demetrious Johnson and Olympic gold medalist Henry Cejudo (UFC 197 co-main event); and middleweight titleholder Luke Rockhold and ex-champ Chris Weidman, who are expected to headline UFC 199 in June. Thanks to MMA Junkie for providing us with this list.
Cormier and Jones were particularly heated with each other, as Cormier claimed Jones called him a "p***y" and told him to s*** my d***" just before the press conference.
