In their first promotional duties for the event, Jones and Gustafsson went right at each other.

On Friday afternoon at Madison Square Garden, the former UFC light-heavyweight champion returned to centre stage at a press conference to promote his fight against Alexander Gustafsson at UFC 232 on December 29. That's why Cormier says in reality a fight against Jones should be bigger-it's actually two of the top fighters in the history of the sport clashing for the third time. The second bout previous year was changed to a no-contest when Jones failed a doping test that kept him out of the sport for 15 months. Then he left, but I mean I would have dug my heels first off, and secondly, I would have pushed him back.

"I didn't train as hard as I should have".

Cormier said a KO was the only way he could lose.

Assuming Cormier finds a way to win, his next fight will likely come down to two possible opponents: Brock Lesnar or Jon Jones.

After a thrilling "Fight of the Year" battle at UFC 165 in September 2013, won by Jones (21-1 MMA, 16-1 UFC), the former champ will rematch Gustafsson (18-4 MMA, 10-4 UFC) for the soon-to-be-vacant light heavyweight title in the December 29 headliner, which takes place at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas and airs on pay-per-view following prelims on FS1 and UFC Fight Pass.

It doesn't sit well with Jones that Gustafsson gave him the most competitive fight of his career. "I feel like fighting at heavyweight is putting all the cards in his favour. I also corner guys, I also coach, so there are ways for me to stay involved in competition".

Daniel Cormier will be going into his fight on Saturday night as a heavy favourite. Cormier has never lost to anyone except Jones, the star-crossed former light heavyweight champion who beat him twice.




There's a rivalry there, too, although it's more professional than personal.

Lewis propelled himself to the title bout with a thunderous victory over Alexander Volkov at UFC 229.

This kind of hype wasn't exactly brimming with the nastiness of Conor McGregor throwing a hand truck at a bus to get at his foe.

Ultimately, Jones did what he had to do on Friday, and that was to remind people that he was back.

For the second time in less than a year, Sijara Eubanks missed weight.

Separated by UFC President Dana White, the heated rivals who are set to resolve their differences inside the Octagon on Saturday, December 29 at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada exchanged verbal jabs in the build-up to what should be an explosive night of fights to end the year.

Cormier has already warned Lesnar that he will "slap" him if he is to try anything similar after his fight with Lewis.

Brian Kelleher also missed the bantamweight limit of 136 lbs. and will be docked 20% of his purse for his fight with Montel Jackson.
