    I don't know if it's just me but I'm not looking forward to the Jones/Cormier weigh in. All though they probably won't fight again with the payday at stake, it's just awkward to see two professionals act like thugs.
    I tried to google it, but couldn't find anything about the UFC keeping certain fighters separated at the weigh ins. Do you think they should?

    I hope DC makes good on that spitting threat.

    DC won't have enough fluid in his body. The dude cuts a lot of weight.

    Agreed. I don't think Jones would have dared to push Dana aside to get a punch in had Dana been the guy that handled the infamous staredown.

    So long as the intention is pure, I don't mind if he blows a puff of dust at Jones.

    Imagine he had. What would Dana have done? The Baldfather can be one of the most vicious people in MMA.

    it would be a lot lamer if they did. like seperate them from the start.

    you get to see much more heated tension and it adds to the hype when they get in eachothers faces. much more interesting.

    No way would they ever separate 2 fighters.

    Violence/bad blood/intense stare-downs help hype and sell fights

    He'd have submitted Jones by way of illegal market monopolization.

    He'd have set up a boxing bout between himself and Jones, filmed himself training, and ultimately nothing would happen.

    I still remember when Wanderlei jumped in the ring after Rampage called him out back in Pride with "That's my belt, boy, I want you!"... Dressed in a baggy wife-beater like he'd been partying at the Blue Oyster, Wanderlei charged the ring, shouted "my belt and pushed Rampage who'd just knocked out Kevin Randleman. Yiu could see a rampage was looking like he could cry at any moment, and it set up one of the most violent fights in MMA history.

    I like a good push.

    Porier vs GOAT and Diaz vs Penn spring to mind
