Jon Jones And Anthony Johnson's Fake Fight Prank On Dana White Is Still Hilarious
Let's go back and fondly remember one of the funniest UFC moments of all time.
Ahead of their bout at UFC 187 in Las Vegas, Anthony 'Rumble' Johnson and Jon Jones were in a mischievous mood at the "Welcome to the Event" show back in 2015, and the unsuspecting Dana White was the main target.
Of course, Jones was part of the infamous brawl with Daniel Cormier at the UFC 178 media day months previous, so you can understand if tensions were high at the time.
Anyway, both fighters had discussed previously to prank the UFC president as they went head to head.
They planned to re-enact the first part of the wild brawl between Jones and Cormier in the MGM Grand lobby and well, the rest is history.
Jones put his forehead on Johnson's, and 'Rumble' pushed him backwards. Just check out Dana's face trying to break up the fighters. Priceless.
In an interview via MMA fighting after the clash, Jones described the scene:
"If Dave was up there, it would have been perfect. It is what it is. I think it's even better, though, because it was Dana. You know, Dana is Mr. Billy Bad Ass. You can't do anything to him. He definitely damn near sh*t on himself."
"It was so high. The pitch of his voice was so high, but the expression on his face was priceless."
Cormier wasn't so sure about the incident, but Dana was still hyped for the bout.
What a moment.
