ALBUQUERQUE, NM -- Say what you will about Jon Jones, but it's rare to see the UFC's light heavyweight champion caught in the theatrical world of ‘beef' quite like he is with UFC 182 rival Daniel Cormier. In fact, only twice before have we even seen Jones approach something like this. First with Quinton "Rampage" Jackson, though that relationship always seemed more snippy than anything. The second time was Rashad Evans, and that one was bad. A jilted former training partner who bickered endlessl read news >>

This ... is ... JEOPARDY! Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) light heavyweight titleholder and UFC 182 headliner Jon Jones was on the popular game show -- in question form -- thanks to the gruesome toe injury he suffered at UFC 159 (see it here). Unfortunately, smart people have no idea who "Bones" is and do their best to try to nail down a possible sport ... with hilarious results.

Or a "fluke," as Dillashaw refers to it. But just because Dodson went down to a more natural weight of 125 pounds, doesn't mean he's not willing to move back up to prove the "Viper" wrong. After all, if the champion of his own weight class is too afraid to f read news >>
