With the ongoing bitter rivalry between Jon Jones and Daniel Cormier, it was actually a nice change of pace to see Jones not have to resort to verbal savagery for his opponent.

Here we can pinpoint the exact moment when the unspoken Gentlemen’s Agreement ended. Everything was going fine until OSP decided to say he’d have his hand raised at UFC 197. Jones reaction is priceless. Like, oh okay, it’s on now. C’mon OSP, you know you’re the sacrificial lamb to Sober Weightlifting Jon Jones. …And this isn’t even his final form.
