  • Jones and Cormier was so childish it reminded me of sibling rivalry between two brothers: I wish i could spit in your fucking face right now. You know i would kill you if you did that. You can't kill me Jon! Oh I bet I could! No you could never Jon. Oh yes I could. Lol!!!!

  • It's a little known fact but before the finish of UFC 214 Cormier actually spit on Jones. That is why he proceeded to follow thru on his word before the ref stepped in. 15:35 if you look closely you can actually see the spit.

  • Bad behavior is marketable. Acting like a fucking child is what sells. Lets reward all the emotionally crippled, over grown, behaviorally disabled for acting like that. .....oh, and kets give everyone else the idea it ok. Lets see of you are one of these. Also I wish Steven Smith would shut up....hes got a less tham 21% prediction accuracy mark. My niece picks better than him

  • Yet none of these combined can hold a candle to some Pride events, like Cro Cop vs. Fedor for example. Not even close to comparable. There is just a difference between FAKE rivalries and real honorable rivalries.
