- Daniel Cormier stopped by the "UFC Tonight" stage to discuss his week, which included falling off a stage with UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones. After the two went nose-to-nose during media days, they scuffled.
"I figured he was trying to intimidate me. He put his head down on my head and nudged me forward and I pushed him off me," Cormier said. "If a guy gets in your face, and makes contact, I respond. Was it the right thing to do? No. But if he did it again, I'd do the same exact thing. I believe it is mental warfare. If I allowed him to do that to me, he would have gotten a one-up on me, and I expected him to do the same thing to me."
Cormier, unbeaten in MMA and a former U.S. Olympic wrestler, added that he i s"searching for a guy the equal of me in the Octagon. I want that dogfight. Hopefully, Jon will be that guy."
- According to a report by "UFC Tonight," former lightweight champion Frankie Edgar and Cub Swanson could meet in a title-eliminator contest later this year from Sweden. The report indicates that Swanson has warmed up to the idea of facing Edgar.
Rumors of a possible November or December meeting between Edgar and Swanson are also on the table, but if they meet in Sweden, it would take place October 4 from Stockholm. Edgar challenged Jose Aldo for the featherweight title upon entering the division, while Swanson is coming off a win over Jeremy Stephens.
