UFC light heavyweight champion, Jon Jones, who was found to have traces of the illegal drug cocaine in his system on December 4th last year, prior to his title fight against Daniel Cormier on January 3rd 2015, at UFC 181 in Las Vegas, Nevada has now done a ‘stint’ [one day] in rehab.
UFC fined Jones $25,000 for violating its code of conduct policy and will still to continue to support the champ.
Here is the one on one video interview that was aired as a special on FOXSPORTS 1 Monday night in the states.
Holly Holm has now officially signed with the UFC. After months of speculation, Holm has put pen to paper and signed an official contract.
President, Dana White, announced via Twitter by tweeting out the following:
Welcome to the UFC Holy Holm whilst holding up the picture below:
Holm [7-0] has a considerable amount of experience as an ex-champion boxer. She trains out of the famed Jackson’s MMA Gym and has been seen trading punches and kicks with UFC Light Heavyweight champ Jon Jones.
Holm is currently recouping from a broken arm, sustained from her last bout against Juliana Werner at Legacy FC 30, on April 4th but looks to be fighting fit around October/November time.
For now, we can all let the rumours carry on as to whom we think, Holm’s first opponent will be? For me personally it makes sense for Jessica Eye but that is just my opinion!
The Women’s Bantamweight Division is now getting more interesting with the latest two additions:
Friday April 25th it was time for UFC172 Weigh-In time, everything ran smoothly bar the only slip up coming from Joe Rogan announcing the wrong fighters, but hey we can forgive him – its UFC172 Weigh-in time.
