Jon Jones Clowns on Phil Davis at UFC 172 Post-Fight Presser

Jon Jones was all smiles after thoroughly dominating Glover Teixeira for five rounds at UFC 172. You could tell in the cage shortly after the fight, sure. It wasn't until the post-fight press conference, though, that he showed how walking-on-air delighted he was. 

After a "performance issue" with the Maryland Athletic Commission regarding his post-fight urine sample, he entered the media room, cracked jokes, laughed it up with the press, ate some potato chips with Luke Rockhold and shot the breeze. 

That said, he was still a bit sore about Phil Davis' actions over the previous week and, when asked about how his performance against Teixeira related back to his previous win over Alexander Gustafsson, Jones took the chance to take swipes at his former potential-opponent-of-the-future.

"I'm happy, I know I keep saying that...Phil Davis isn't happy," he said before reaching across Dana White's podium to high-five Davis' opponent that night, Anthony "Rumble" Johnson. "He was talking all that greasiness, and now he's somewhere pouting."

Ouch!

For those who didn't see it, Davis has been throwing a lot of vitriol in the direction of Jones. At the April 21 conference call for UFC 172, Davis hijacked the happenings in order to barb Jones and rub in the controversial nature of his win over Alexander Gustafsson. Two days later, at the event's media day, he again took shots at Jones while also dismissing Johnson.

Davis' "uppance" came with a vengeance, though, when Johnson beat him in surprisingly lopsided fashion. While many expected Davis to bully the former welterweight with his solid wrestling, Johnson shrugged off his takedowns and roughed him up with his superior striking. Right or wrong, that has many believing that Davis wrongly looked past Johnson.

While Jones was smiley for most of the conference, he quickly got serious when asked about his next opponent, Alexander Gustafsson, whom he has been in a heated war of words with. Given Davis' close relationship with the Swede, that likely means we haven't seen the last exchange between the two wrestlers.
