UFC 182: JONES VS. CORMIER > JAN. 3

Talk about an­tic­i­pa­tion. A fight orig­i­nally sched­uled for Septem­ber that was moved due to a Jones in­jury has ev­ery­thing you could ask for: the No. 1 pound-for-pound fighter in the world and cur­rent light heavy­weight cham­pion Jon “Bones” Jones de­fend­ing his belt against his arch-neme­sis, sec­ond-ranked Daniel Cormier. Th­ese two do not like each other, that was clear be­fore they brawled at the orig­i­nal pre-fight press con­fer­ence in the MGM Grand lobby. They have had a Twit­ter bat­tle and a war of words on ESPN hours after they threw fists. Well, it's time to put up or shut up when they fi­nally take the oc­tagon to­gether. MGM Grand, (702) 891-1111
