We have Bellator soon, with the live prelims airing HERE on HG.com! Then we’ll be doing the PBP, as we do, because that’s how we roll. So, let’s briefly look at the news of the day.
Jon Jones reinstated because duh
We told you so. That’s right, we were the ONLY people to predict he’d be back … shut up. Anyways. He’s been “reinstated” to the UFC, so I guess he gets health insurance now? I genuinely have no idea what that means beyond obviously he’s going to be fighting again, soon. I always predicted SuperBowl Weekend so I’ll stick with that one.
UFC CEO Lorenzo Fertitta issued via UFC.com:
“We’ve made it clear to Jon that this new opportunity to compete in UFC is a privilege and not a right, and that there are significant expectations we have regarding his conduct moving forward. We’re happy to read and see reports that he has embraced the terms of his plea agreement and is using this experience to grow and develop as a person.”
Jones also issued a statement, saying:
“I am thankful to be able to do what I love once again and I look forward to proving myself as a champion in and outside of the Octagon,”

Uh, that’s basically it for news. Again, stick around for Bellator tonight and then UFC tomorrow morning and afternoon. C’mon, you know you wanna see this man headline a show:
