Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) held its 'Unstoppable' press conference earlier today (Fri., March 4, 2016) inside MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, to promote several upcoming showdowns from top fighters.
Check out the full video replay right here.
As always, MMA Fighting shutterbug extraordinaire Esther Lin was on the scene, taking photos of the fighters as they had their war of words. Jon Jones and Daniel Cormier were in particularly fine form, bickering back and forth about their bad blood from UFC 182.
Jones even hit Cormier with a WWE style gesture during the staredowns, a similar move to the one he pulled in the dying seconds of their fight (see photo by Esther Lin in the gallery as well).
Things got heated between the ladies as well, with UFC president Dana White getting popped by Claudia Gadelha in the face while trying to keep her apart from a taunting Joanna Jedrzejczyk. God, I love this rematch.
