Dana White buries Jon Jones!

Jon Jones
After waiting for far too long to see Jon Jones back in action, he waltzed back into our lives, finished Daniel Cormier in dramatic fashion, now he’s right back out. We’ve been dealing with the ramificationsfrom Jon Jones positive test the entire summer. Instead of most likely defending his title or fighting Brock Lesnar, he’ll be at a hearing in December to prove his innocence. Recently Dana White was asked about one of the greatest fighters ever having to sit out of competition once again.
“[He’s the most wasted talent] ever. Ever, in all of sports. [Jon Jones] is so talented and gifted, God knows what he would be doing now if he hadn’t ever got in trouble. He could possibly be the heavyweight champion and have the defense record that couldn’t be broken. The list goes on and on of what could’ve been with Jon Jones. Whatever happens [with his suspension], happens. Believe me, I’m not mentally or emotionally invested in that anymore.” — Dana White on the TSN MMA Show.

Whether you believe Dana White’s harsh words or not, it’s an incredible shame that we’ll be missing out on potentially giant Jon Jones fights. After his anti-doping violation, White revealed they were working on a superfight where Jon Jones would have challenged Stipe Miocic for the heavyweight title. He could’ve became a two-division UFC champion and pulled off a run there. Not to mention the Brock Lesnar fight the UFC could eventually have made happen. All hope is not lost yet, we’ll know in a couple of months what Jones’ fate may be.

F <"k You: Dana White to Jason Aldean

mmamania.com:   Dana White slams Jason Aldean for blowing off UFC 216 invitation - ‘F*ck you, stay out of Las Vegas’
Last weekend, a madman opened fire from he 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada at unsuspecting concert-goers who were enjoying some of Jason Aldean’s greatest hits, killing over 50 people and injuring nearly 500 more.
Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) did its part to honor victims, families and first responders who were all affected by the horrific event, donating $1 million to the cause and hosting over 1,500 of those people at last night’s (Sat., Oct. 7, 2017) UFC 216 event in “Sin City.”
UFC president Dana White, though, wanted Aldean to perform the National Anthem at the event, but was denied by the country music singer’s management, citing that Jason was shook up by the shooting and wasn’t sure if he’d be performing live anytime soon, if ever. However, Aldean did perform, but not at UFC 216, but on Saturday Night Live in New York…

Boxer kisses Boxer!

Boxer kisses her opponent during very intimate faceoff By Michael Blaustein, NY Times October 16, 2017 | 3:46pm
Boxing faceoffs are all about mind games. Fighters try to look intimidating, they talk trash, and they get up in each other’s grills all in the name of mind games. Swedish professional boxer Mikaela Laurén took the theatrics to a whole other place during a press conference on Monday when she stood toe-to-toe with undefeated champion Cecilia Braekhus. As cameras clicked away, Lauren approached Braekhus, stared deeply into her eyes and planted a kiss on her lips. At first, Braekhus reacted in horror and half slapped, half pushed Laurén away. But Braekhus soon started laughing at the absurdity of it all. “I haven’t got that in a while,” Braekhus joked as Lauren exited stage left.

Thirty-six-year-old welterweight Braekhus (31-0) is the pound-for-pound queen of Norwegian boxing and currently holds the female WBA, WBC, IBF, and WBO titles. She will fight 41-year-old Laurén (29-4)…

Severn vs Shamrock 3: Who Cares?

Dan Severn responds to Ken Shamrock: ‘Am I gonna stick around forever for a turd like him?’
Dan Severn still wants to fight Ken Shamrock but doesn’t see it happening. by Nick Baldwin at bloodyelbow.com
Dan Severn and Ken Shamrock both want to fight each other, but it seems the bout probably won’t happen. If you ask Shamrock why, he will tell you he is about to have his knee replaced, and any sort of competition is out of the picture for now. If you ask Severn why, it’s because Shamrock is full of excuses. Severn and Shamrock were scheduled to meet for the third time at UR Fight 1 in March 2016 — nearly 20 years after their rematch at UFC 9. But just over a week before the event, Shamrock was forced off the card. He first cited an injury as the cause for the bout cancellation. In reality, he was suspended 90 days by the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation (TDLR) after testing positive for a steroid and an opioid in a drug test related to his Bellator 149 loss to…
