    A trilogy bout between Jon Jones and Daniel Cormier will have to wait.

    Yesterday, TMZ Sports reported that Jones will defend his light heavyweight title against Anthony Smith at UFC 235 on March 2nd. The bout is expected to take place at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, but ‘Bones’ will have to apply for a license from the Nevada Athletic Commission (NAC) before being given clearance to fight.

    This according to UFC president Dana White, who spoke to TMZ Sports on Saturday.

    “Later this month, Jon Jones will file an application for licensure with the NSAC in order to compete at UFC 235 in Las Vegas, Nevada on March 2nd.”

    Let’s see how this goes. Anthony gets hyped when he starts to lose so let’s see. He does have some heat.

    Should we adapt our expectations to select fighters are now allowed to compete with PED metabolizes in them?

    Possibly for the next 7 years...

    He’s been given a free pass by UFC - USADA - CSAC and soon the NSAC

    thats more like it
    The July date was a fucking joke
    Jon should fight 4 times a year so they get their moneys worth before he ends up Banned or in trouble with the Law again

    March June October December repeat

    This card will also have Woodley/Usman on it.

    Colby played his hand like a dumbass and is now left out in the cold. Idiot.

    Both USADA and Jones have stated that the "pictograms can stay in you for up to
    7 years or even forever"

    Jones can piss hot for the duration of his fighting career

    You see that exchange between Woodley and Usaman?

    Got pretty nasty with Woodley eventually calling Usman a Coon and Uncle Tomin'

    Thats the deepest insult one brother can give to another


    But yeah Colby....

    Way to fold the nuts on the flop

    Coonin means when a black man is showing out and dancing for white people

    Like when a black cop and a white cop stops a black man
    but the black cop is being the asshole to show out for his white
    boss.

    Its what a black man calls another black man when he really wants to insult him

    In this case T Wood is telling Usaman to stop coonin (dancing) for Dana

    Remember when everyone got up in arms when Conor said "Dance for me boy"
    to Floyd? He didnt understand what he was saying and how it sounded
    to black people.

    It goes back to slavery days when the lighter skin blacks were allowed
    to have more things then darker skinned slaves

    Thats a deeper discussion though and probably better left to another thread

    Yeah man I'm all for bringin back TRT now.

    At least it gave fighters a way to juice equally and not be suspended for years
    and USADA constantly fucking up events

    If Juicy can Juice freely then other fighters should be able to as well

    I don't think Anthony wants that smoke

    I don't even see this being remotely competitive

    But... he's next in line and Juicy has cleaned the division out so it is what it is
