Jon Jones and Anthony Johnson prank UFC president Dana White with fake brawl

It turns out they’re the best of buds really.

THE UFC held a media day in Los Angeles yesterday, where lightheavyweight champion Jon Jones and his latest challenger Anthony Johnson squared up ahead of their title fight at UFC 187 in May.

For a moment it looked like there would be similar scenes to the infamous brawl which broke out between Jones and Daniel Cormier last year — with UFC president Dana White the only thing keeping the pair apart.

However, it quickly became clear that the two fighters had pre-planned the mock scuffle and White eventually saw the funny side of it.
