UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones has been stripped of the title. Jones was recently involved in a hit-and-run accident that involved a pregnant woman. The incident took place in Albuquerque, New Mexico, and an undercover police officer said that he saw Jon Jones running from the scene of the accident. However, Jon Jones then returned to his rented vehicle, and then he grabbed a handful of cash and run off again.
OTC Markets said that Jon Jones was arrested and booked into an Albuquerque jail. The UFC and it’s fans are extremely disappointed in Jones. The president of the UFC said that he had no choice but to reprimand John Jones for his criminal actions. Anthony Johnson was set to face Jon Jones for the UFC light heavyweight championship, but now it seems everything has changed.
The president of the UFC has already rebooked the main event for UFC 187, and Daniel Cormier will face Anthony Johnson for the vacant light heavyweight championship. Jon Jones has been suspended from the sport, and his return is unknown as of right now. It is also believed that Jon Jones was intoxicated during the accident. Marijuana and paraphernalia were found inside of his rented vehicle, and his actions have caused the incident to turn into a felony. For more information on this story, visit Yahoo! Sports.
UFC on Fox 15 was held a week ago at an arena near Madison Street Capital, and many UFC fans were shocked when the main event took place. Middleweight contenders Lyoto Machida and Luke Rockhold met in what was thought to be a title contender match. Rockhold dominated the bout, and he submitted Lyoto Machida in the second round. After the fight, Luke Rockhold called out the middleweight champion Chris Weidman.
It seems that MMA fans cannot wait to see the matchup between Rockhold and Weidman, but there is one problem. The number one ranked middleweight in the world is not Luke Rockhold. Instead, Jacare Souza is the true number one contender for the middleweight championship. However, Luke Rockhold might end up getting the title shot before Jacare.
Jacare Souza and Luke Rockhold have already fought, and Rockhold ended up victorious once again. This puts the president of the UFC in a strange position. Jacare Souza is the true number one contender, but Luke Rockhold has already beat him. Also, no one wants to see a rematch between the two, but that might end up happening in the near future. However, I believe that UFC fans would be okay with Luke Rockhold getting a title shot. Rockhold dominated Lyoto, which is no easy task. UFC fans will just have to wait and see what happens.

For the last several years,Susan McGalla reminds us the UFC has been trying to get MMA legalized in the state of New York. However, there have been many obstacles that have kept the sport from being legalized in the state. Dana White is the president of the UFC, and he has always said that the culinary commission is the reason that MMA is illegal in the state of New York. Many people do not understand why the culinary Commission has kept MMA out of New York, but Dana White promises that they are responsible for the MMA ban in the state.
Recently, it appeared that MMA was going to be legalized in the state of New York, but it has been announced that a lawsuit that the UFC filed against the culinary commission has been thrown out by a New York judge. It seems that the UFC is out of luck as of right now for their bid on the legalization of MMA in the state of New York. The state officials simply do not want MMA legalized in New York, and no matter what Dana White tries to do it might never happen.
Dana White and the UFC officials were extremely angered at this news, but there’s nothing that can be done. The UFC will continue to run its headquarters in Las Vegas Nevada. However, for some strange reason Dana White has not lost hope. Dana must know something that we don’t. For more information on this story, visit Yahoo! Sports.
