UFC light heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier has been unforgiving towards Jon Jones’ substance use issues. From calling the former champion “Cialis boy”, to ripping on him for supposedly “doing steroids, snorting cocaine and sandblasting prostitutes”, Cormier seems unwilling to let up with the tirades.

 But according to DC, these words are somehow justified. During his appearance on The Luke Thomas Show on SiriusXM on Wednesday, Cormier says Jones’ misdemeanors have greatly affected other people, including him.

“These things are so public,” Cormier said (via MMAJunkie). “These instances are so public. If he was doing all this stuff to himself and by himself and not affecting people, I probably wouldn’t say anything. But his indiscretions and mess-ups have greatly influenced my career, too, in the way I’m perceived. A lot of people may say, ‘Well, you would never be the champion if he didn’t do those things.’ Maybe he would’ve beat me again, but we would’ve fought already to decide that.”

For many, drug addiction should be treated as a disease, rather than a crime. Cormier, on the other hand, believes it is all about the choices one makes.

 “But even though I am champion, because of the things that he’s done to get in that situation, people never really, truly respect me as they should,” Cormier said. “Not only are they not respecting me as they should, they’re discrediting everything I have done. So, it’s not off limits.”

“And my whole thing is this. Some guy said this to me: ‘Daniel, if you knew the struggle, you would never say the things you say.’ And I said, ‘Well, I don’t know the struggle, because I know how dangerous it is. So I don’t mess with it.’

“You’re not born with addiction issues. You make the choice to start to mess with that.”

 Cormier was also led to believe that Jones could very well be playing dirty his entire life.

“If you’re willing to do that right before a fight, and that’s something that can be detrimental to you going forward, why wouldn’t you do something that could help you? That’s my philosophy. I could be wrong. I do believe that this dude has been cheating his entire life, though. Why not?”

Cormier and Jones will finally get to settle the score in a long-awaited rematch slated for UFC 214 on July 29th in Anaheim, California.

It appears that, for once, Dana White was telling the truth.

He claimed before UFC 211 that he was going to get Conor’s side of the Mayweather boxing match hashed out by Sunday, then bring that contract to Mayweather. This step appears to have been taken- Conor confirmed as much in a statement on his own website, the Maclife.com.

“It is an honour to sign this record breaking deal alongside my partners Zuffa LLC, The Ultimate Fighting Championship and Paradigm Sports Management,” McGregor said.

“The first, and most important part of this historic contract has now officially been signed off on. Congratulations to all parties involved. We now await Al Haymon and his boxer’s signature in the coming days.”

That, of course, does not mean the fight is on. Mayweather is notoriously (no pun intended) difficult to work with, over everything from profit share to ring size to glove selection. He will present a huge hurdle for the negotiating skill of Dana White, who is used to dictating terms to his own fighters. When presented with negotiations involving parties that are on equal footing, Dana has historically had a lot of difficulty, such as the many times he tried to sign Fedor Emelianenko in his prime, and the extended attempt to re-negotiate Georges St. Pierre’s contract.

However, there is no denying this is a huge step. Previously, sources in the boxing world had cited the UFC’s egregious demands for a huge percentage of Conor’s side of the profits from the bout as the main obstacle to the fights. It seems McGregor and the UFC have moved past that, meaning the fight is ostensibly much closer to being made.

We Are Live

by James ~ December 21st, 2013

In the immortal words of Bruce Buffer…We Are LIVE!

Here we are at day 1, ground zero, of what we hope is going to be a very exciting & long lasting journey! We are passionate & avid collectors of everything UFC & most specifically Round 5 Collectibles. As I have expanded my own personal collection I have discovered just how many different series’, figures, limited editions & exclusives that Round 5 Collectibles has produced & how daunting it is to try to ensure I have found them all. It is for that reason I started this project, not only to help organize my own thoughts but also to help the thousands of others out there just like me that want to see it all in one place. Over the course of the next few months I intend to turn this into a collecting community of like minded individuals looking to find, sell & trade Round 5 Figures as well as any other UFC memorabilia. Some of the things I am looking to accomplish in no particular order:

  • Create a definitive checklist of every figure Round 5 Collectibles has ever produced…ever
  • Get a forum going so that we can all talk about our latest finds & help each other out with trades or maybe even make a few dollars selling some of the extras we’ve picked up
  • Eventually design (read find someone that knows how to design) an app that will allow us to keep our collections with us while we are on the go

That said, if you have any questions, comments or suggestions regarding what you’d like to see, please don’t hesitate to let me know!
