Daniel Cormier concerned with Herb Dean refereeing UFC 197 main event

bjpenndotcom - March 24, 2016

As we get closer and closer to Jon Jones vs. Daniel Cormier II on April 23rd, where Jon Jones will look to reclaim the UFC light heavyweight championship belt he never lost inside the Octagon, Daniel Cormier has a concern regarding Herb Dean being the referee for the bout. Back at UFC 182, the pair had their first meeting where Jones dominated Cormier from the first bell to the last. Despite that, Cormier believes that there were several times where referee Herb Dean allowed Jones to clinch Cormier for an extended period of time, something DC appears worried about going into their UFC 197 scrap on April 23rd.

Daniel Cormier roasts analyst Brian Stann for picking Jon Jones to win their championship bout

Russell Ess - March 23, 2016

MMA media members are having a tough time with facing the consequences of simply doing their job and picking who they think will win the big matches in the UFC when the question comes up. Recently, Jon Anik who is a UFC commentator and familiar face to the promotion made a lot of noise when he picked Conor McGregor to win the main event at UFC 196 against Nate Diaz. Anik went and said that if Diaz won, he would get a “209” tattoo, which is Diaz’s hometown area code. Diaz was not happy about Anik’s pick and comment and made sure to remind Anik of his promise after Diaz was able to submit McGregor in the second round of their bout.
