The commercial, which you can view in the video above, features Weidman and Iaquinta both working out. However, things quickly shift to both men in suits inside of the jewelry store.
Weidman was expected to meet Lyoto Machida at UFC 173, but knee surgery - which is planned for today - postponed the bout to July and UFC 175. Iaquinta remains scheduled for the May pay-per-view, meeting Mitch Clarke.
- Jon Jones continued his social media interactions by holding another impromptu Q&A session. The UFC light heavyweight champion was asked by a fan if he could fight any light heavyweight in UFC history, who would it be.
"Tito (Ortiz), Chuck (Liddell) or Randy (Couture)," Jones posted. "One of those three."
Ortiz, Liddell and Couture are known as three of the all-time legends in MMA, not just at 205 pounds. Jones recently surpassed the record for successful title defenses, which was held by Ortiz. Jones will return to action later this month when he defends his title against Glover Teixeira at UFC 172. Teixeira is a close friend and training partner of Liddell's.
- We previously reported that Daniel Cormier was expected to face Rafael "Feijao" Cavalcante at UFC 175 later this year. However, MMAFighting.com is reporting that Cormier will meet Dan Henderson instead.
Henderson (30-11) and Cormier (14-0) are both former U.S. Olympic wrestlers. "Hendo" competed in 1992 and '96, while "DC" was part of the squad in 2004 and '08. Recently, Henderson snapped a three-fight losing skid by finishing Mauricio "Shogun" Rua in Brazil. Cormier, meanwhile, made his light heavyweight debut with a TKO win over Patrick Cummins earlier this year.
UFC president Dana White responded to the report by stating the fight is "not done" and that Ryan Bader might still be inserted into the fight.
@lastmanoftruth Hendo vs Cormier isn't a done deal and not even close. Some reporters like to be 1st instead of being right.— Dana White (@danawhite) April 1, 2014
