UFC And Daniel Cormier Comment On Jon Jones Plea Agreement, UFC 192 Embedded, More

- The UFC has released episodes 1 & 2 of UFC 192 Embedded in promotion of the big event. Daniel Cormier, Alexander Gustafsson, Ryan Bader, Rashad Evans, Tyron Woodley and Johny Hendricks are all shown preparing for the big show.

Wrestling Inc will have full, live coverage of UFC 192 this Saturday night. You can see episode one of UFC 192 Embedded above, and episode 2 below.

- Speaking of Daniel Cormier, he spoke to MMAFighting about the plea agreement reached by his rival Jon Jones this week.

"When this incident happened, the thought wasn't really that Jon was going to serve jail time," Cormier said. "The hope was that there would be some sort of punishment for his actions, and that was the punishment levied by the judicial system. The system is in place for a reason, so we have to all agree that it's fair. Jon is not getting off scot-free. He will now be able to help young children and talk to them so that they don't make mistakes like he has over the course of his life."

- The UFC also commented on the matter after the ruling. No decision has been made yet about Jones possibly being reinstated. He's been suspended since the incident occurred.

The UFC released the following statement:

"The UFC organization is aware that Jon Jones reached a plea agreement with authorities in Albuquerque, New Mexico this morning stemming from charges associated with a motor vehicle accident earlier this year. As a result, UFC, through Las Vegas-based law firm Campbell & Williams, will thoroughly review the agreement before discussing Jones' possible reinstatement to return to competition.

More information will be made available following completion of this review."
