UFC News: Jon Jones and Daniel Cormier brawl at press conference

Daniel Cormier and UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Jon Jones got into a brawl at a press conference earlier today.

Both men were brought on stage for a staredown at in the MGM Grand lobby. Jones bulled his head into Cormier's, Cormier shoved him, and then during an attempted pull-apart, Jones threw a wild swinging punch that appeared to miss. In the wild melee, various people fell into the giant UFC backdrop, knocking it down and making it look even more out of control.

You can check out a video of the brawl here.

Both will be on ESPN Sports Center later today to discuss this. More on this situation tonight on Wrestling Observer Radio.
