Before you get too excited — by most accounts this is “play fighting.” The UFC lightweight heavyweight champ Jon Jones and former heavyweight champ Frank Mir are training partners at Jackson’s MMA, and also share manager Malki Kawa. Not saying that it’s impossible that they had a dispute, but it does seem suspicious that no one attempts to divide the two. Then again this is Moscow, and would you get between a heavyweight and potential future heavyweight?
Will see Jones return against Glover Teixeira at UFC 171 in Dallas, Texas on March 15. Mir is scheduled to throw down at UFC 169 against Alistair Overeem.
