UFC 214 one day later - all Jon Jones, all the time

"I heard Daniel say things like he wanted to show me right away that the two years will affect me and that I'm not meant to be here", explained Jones.

"Brock Lesnar, if you want to know what it feels like to get your ass kicked by a guy who weighs 40 pounds less than you, meet me in the Octagon", Jones said. As UFC's "main draw" Conor McGregor tests water and quadruples his networth by boxing Floyd Mayweather, UFC needed this card as well. I know this is an incredible moment for you.

Chandler made it in time, and Jon won the light heavyweight championship via a knockout.

Fighters pulling out at the last time, good matchups not delivering and controversial decisions dominated the headlines.

Jon Jones had barely reclaimed his UFC title when he called out Brock Lesnar to be his next opponent. Obviously, there are many factors that will have to be overcome before a Jones-Lesnar showdown can be cemented.

Given the uneasy highs and lows of Jon Jones' personal and professional life over the past two years, it may be hard for some to receive Saturday's comeback as a true babyface turn or biblical prodigal son triumphantly marching home. It was Jones's first bout since returning from a one-year doping ban, and the pair's first matchup since Jones defeated Cormier by unanimous decision in 2015. But as in the first fight, he contended with the same weapons that have sunk so many of Jones' foes, taking kick after kick to his legs and punches impossible to counter because of Jones' 12-inch reach advantage. He has been a model champion, a model husband, a model father, a teammate, leader, and I aspire to be more like that man. Jones consistently attacked the body, and Cormier answered with a flurry of strikes. "If you win both fights, I guess there isn't a rivalry".

Appearing on Fox News, he said there was a need to reset the ties with the media and "create a more positive mojo". Spicer reportedly resigned because he was opposed to Scaramucci , whom he had to report to as press secretary.

She secured the UFC featherweight belt that was stripped from Germaine de Randamie in May and doesn't plan to relinquish it any time soon.

"Before this fight, no one knew me".

Cris Cyborg finally completed a remarkable career metamorphosis.

The Swedish killer is now the undisputed No.1 challenger after Jimi Manuwa was knocked out by Volkan Oezdemir.
