Jon Jones and Daniel Cormier lock heads again
Jon Jones is preparing for a heavyweight debut and his long-term rival Daniel Cormier has raised doubts as to whether "Bones" can finish people at the higher weight class. Cormier stated that Jones's lack of finishes at 205lbs makes him doubt how he can suddenly knockout bigger and stronger opponents.
Jones has clearly heard this loud and clear and he tagged Cormier in this delightful video of him TKO'ing the UFC broadcaster out in their rematch at light-heavyweight.

Jairzinho Rozenstruik and Tyron Woodley targeted in one meme
UFC Vegas 20's main event of Cyril Gane vs. Jairzinho Rozenstruik wasn't the heavy-hitting affair fans were hoping for. This has somehow brought Tyron Woodley also into the firing line. Some might say there is more of a strike rate than there was in the main event.
