UFC light heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier (pictured) and interim champ Jon Jones awkwardly played nice Wednesday on the set of “Good Morning America” when it was announced they would headline UFC 200.
Now that their national interview with “Tim and Suzie” (Conor McGregor reference) is out of the way, they can get back to trading shots in the MMA world. Cormier, Jones, Jose Aldo, Frankie Edgar, Miesha Tate, Amanda Nunes and UFC president Dana White will host a press conference inside Theater at Madison Square Garden today at 2PMET/11AM PT.

Although UFC 200’s stars will be in attendance, best believe the Jones and Cormier show will dominate the gathering. There is still plenty of beef between the bitter rivals, and it will only get worse leading up to the rematch.
Jones posted a unanimous decision win over Cormier 15 months ago to notch his eighth straight title defense, a UFC record in the light heavyweight division.
July 9 T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada
