We all remember the epic brawl between Light Heavyweight Champion Jon ” Bones” Jones and  Daniel Cormier a few months ago before UFC 178. Jones was fines $50,000 for the skirmish and give 40 hours of community service, while the Nevada Athletic Commission (NAC) dropped a $9,000 fine to Cormier with 20 hours of community service.

This what probably one of the most talked about fights in recent years in the world of MMA.
