– Performance of the Night bonuses went to Joseph Benavidez and Chris Beal.
– Dana White says Vitor Belfort has to clear up his Nevada issues before fighting again.
– Rockhold wants to shut Michael Bisping up. Wait, didn’t Tim Kennedy just do that? Rockhold also wants to avenge his loss to Belfort.
– Jim Miller vs. Khabib Nurmagomedov could be a possibility.
– Jon Jones will face Alexander Gustafsson next and then they’ll go from there based on Dan Henderson vs. Daniel Cormier.
– Jones says he wanted to tire Glover out Ali-style by letting him swing away. He was also very happy to be cheered by the Baltimore crowd.
– Jones congratulated Rumble Johnson for beating up Phil Davis who targeted Jones with trash talk this week.
