Jon Jones will fight Daniel Cormier for the UFC light heavyweight title in the disgraced fighter's first bout after serving a one-year ban for a positive drug test. Cormier asked. "Is this guy really going to go to the fight?"

This is the fourth time UFC has booked the two to fight.

That opening salvo set the tone for the latest chapter of a rivalry that has now stretched across several years and five planned iterations of the fight, however things actually got heated before the festivities even began.

Cormier proceeded to defeat UFC legend Anderson Silva in the replacement bout - admitting his purse took an estimated $1-million hit thanks to Jones' transgression - and he returned from a training-camp injury to submit top contender Anthony Johnson in the second round on April 8 in Buffalo, N.Y.

"Fuck no. He never beat me".

Jones was stripped of his light heavyweight championship and suspended by UFC in 2015 after a hit-and-run in New Mexico.

"Prostitutes? I beat you after a weekend of cocaine", Jones shot back.

"He's a bitch", Cormier said.

The fall of Tabqa leaves no other major urban settlements on the road to Raqqa, about 40 kilometers, or 25 miles, away. Defense Secretary Jim Mattis told reporters that the U.S. has had very open discussions with Turkey over its concerns.

Later, when it came down to pose-offs, Cormier and Jones were kept far apart.

"Are we still calling him the champ now that I'm back?" Jones sat cageside for the fight and said he wasn't impressed.

Another day, another altercation between bitter rivals Daniel Cormier and Jon Jones.

It was one of four big matchups announced by UFC president Dana White during a Friday news conference at American Airlines Center as he laid out the majority of the organization's summer schedule.

And former middleweight champion champion Chris Weidman (13-3) will meet Southland product Kelvin Gastelum (14-2) July 22 in the main event of a UFC Fight Night card on Fox in Long Island, N.Y.

"At least I've been around to show something", responded Cormier. You're some guy that doesn't even fight. Credit should also go to Karolina Kowalkiewicz, who sat beside Jones and just smiled as the craziness unfolded around her.

The scheduled July 8th main event with Cody Garbrandt vs. TJ Dillashaw for the bantamweight title is in jeopardy.
