Daniel Cormier apologises to referee John McCarthy after Jon Jones defeat

UFC president Dana White revealed after the bout that Cormier thought it had been a premature stoppage, even though the general consensus was that it was a tad late.

When Jones asked him to name some, the former Strikeforce champion refused but mentioned that he had his own tendencies.

A still disorientated Cormier, who was in tears as he was interviewed, said he never saw the kick coming. Jones thanked Cormier for being his greatest rival and biggest motivator before calling him a model husband, father, teammate and leader, and claiming that he aspires to be like him. The pair met previously at UFC 182, with Jones handing Cormier his only professional loss after five, hard-fought rounds.

"Brock Lesnar, if you want to know what it feels like to get your a** kicked by a guy that weighs 40 pounds less than you, come meet me in the octagon".

This could be some brilliant cross-promotion for WWE and UFC, who will both be aware of the significant box office interest a fight pitting Jones against Lesnar would garner. Eventually, Cormier took the round 10-9 to make it 19-19 overall.

Jones and Lesnar traded verbal jabs earlier in the week.

And prior to that incident, Jones was also suspended by the UFC - and dropped by his sponsor, Reebok - following a hit-and-run incident in Albuquerque, N.M., in April 2015.

"I think that would be flat out 'no'". As the world marveled at the possibility of such an epic match, WWE.com posted about this dream fight.

"Be careful what you wish for, young man", Lesnar replied via the Associated Press. They were scheduled to fight at UFC 197, but an injury forced Cormier out of the fight.

Jones is now once again the UFC Light Heavyweight Champion. Smelling blood, Bones went in for the kill, nearly missing with a flying knee. Recently, he was challenged by Jon Jones when he won his match at UFC 214. Initially, he came to OVW (Ohio Valley Wrestling) where he worked for around 2 years and became OVW southern tag team champion with Shelton Benjamin.

"He has absolutely no reason to hang his head".
