5 Instances when MMA fighters fought outside the cage
#2 Jon Jones vs. Daniel Cormier
Jon Jones and Daniel Cormier hate each other and have done for a long time. It's not a publicity stunt and it's not for the cameras - these guys legitimately want to beat the hell out of each other and hopefully, we get to see them throw down one more time before one of them retires.
However, what we don't want to see (well, some of us) is another petty brawl during a press conference.
With Jon Anik desperately attempting to separate the two men, Jones went nose to nose with Cormier which led to DC pushing him back. Obviously, the Champion didn't respond well to this, deciding to push Anik out of the way and throw a punch at Cormier which led to a multi-man brawl.
Not the best way to get the sponsors on board, but it did hype the excitement for the fight. Now to a slightly lesser known fighter.
