Champ DC focused on Rumble, not Jon Jones

The future is never promised to a prizefighter. What happens on fight night is what determines what happens next – not predictions, not hopes, not dreams. The sooner he figures that out, the better. So Daniel Cormier isn’t talking about a rematch with Jon Jones before his rematch with Anthony “Rumble” Johnson on Saturday, because without a win in the UFC 210 main event in Buffalo, nothing else really matters.“My focus is 110 percent on Anthony Johnson,” the UFC light heavyweight champion said. “If it’s not, then everything that I’ve ev … Read the Full Article Here

As Pearl Gonzalez prepared for her UFC debut against Cynthia Calvillo this Saturday, she spent three months back home in Illinois, about an hour away from where she grew up in Pilsen, a neighborhood in the Lower West Side of Chicago.It was a lot more peaceful for the 30-year-old strawweight in the suburbs, but she never forgot where she came from.“When I lived downtown in Pilsen, which is where I grew up, it was very tough being here, and being in the area of where I grew up is always risky,” she said. “It’s heavily gang-infested, there are shootings every other day, bu … Read the Full Article Here
