POLL: How Will The Jones Vs. Cormier Media Day Brawl Impact UFC 178?
UFC light-heavyweight champion Jon Jones and arch nemesis Daniel Cormier were involved in one of the most sensational and controversial happenings of 2014 so far, as they brawled at the UFC 178 media day in Las Vegas, Nevada yesterday. The impromptu punch-up sparked a worldwide debate among us MMA fans, and provided much excitement on an otherwise mundane Monday.
PPV sales were likely given a huge boost by the public bust up between ‘Bones’ and ‘DC’, but the UFC code of conduct could cause more trouble for both men than the scuffle was actually worth. Dana White was non too pleased with the display, and the Nevada State Athletic Commission has requested video of the fight to help decide what action to take against both men.
In other words, although the unexpected scrap was entertaining, it may cause the promotion and Jones/Cormier some headaches in the not too distant future. Without a doubt the fracas has fans clamouring to see the two throw down in the octagon at UFC 178, but what impact will it have on the sport of MMA?
Obviously this kind of media day battle has happened in the sport of boxing a lot more regularly in the past, but MMA has been trying diligently to move in to the mainstream with a clean cut image. So what do you think, was the UFC 178 media day brawl good for the sport, will it bring shame, or will life go on? Take a vote and have your say.
