UFC light heavyweight champion Jon “Bones” Jones and Anthony Johnson are set to square off in the Octagon roughly 3 months from now. There’s recently been plenty of hype and anticipation before UFC 187, and UFC President Dana White clearly wanted what to go smoothly at Saturday’s “UFC: Welcome to the Show” press conference in Los Angeles.
Both Jones and Johnson knew White will be centered on keeping the peace throughout the press conference, so they really teamed as much as prank him in the easiest way possible.
Jones and Johnson went forehead to forehead, and a shoving match ensued. White quickly jumped before the 2 fighters to split up the “fight,” and that’s when the 2 quickly backed off and broke out into laughter.
It absolutely was at that moment that White knew he had been pranked.
White was happy after he realized the 2 weren’t really actually likely to maul one another.
