Alexander Gustafsson sent Jon Jones a message following UFC 214

Alexander Gustafsson sent Jon Jones a message following UFC 214

By: Chris Taylor (Kalapaki Joe’s Staff Writer)

Jon Jones became the first man to finish Daniel Cormier at last night’s UFC 214 event in Anaheim, reclaiming his UFC light heavyweight title in the process.

Jones and Cormier went back and forth during the opening two rounds of their highly anticipated UFC 214 main event scrap, with many fans and analysts scoring the fight 19-19 heading into round three.

Unfortunately for Cormier fans, Jones was able to land a viscous head kick on “DC” early on in round-three that had the champion in a world of trouble. “Bones” would proceed to take Cormier down to the octagon canvas where he began unleashing some brutal ground and pound which forced the referee to step in and call the contest.

In his post-fight interview, the newly crowned UFC light heavyweight champion, Jon Jones, proceeded to callout former UFC heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar.

“Lesnar. If you want to find out what it’s like to get your ass kicked by a guy who weighs 40 lbs less than you, meet me here in the octagon.”

Shortly after that, “The Beast” Brock Lesnar would respond to Jon Jones callout with the following warning.

“Be careful what you wish for young man.”

While a proposed super-fight between Jon Jones and Brock Lesnar left some fans screaming at their TV’s “take my money”, former UFC light heavyweight title challenger Alexander Gustafsson was not at all impressed with the idea.

“The Mauler” quickly took to Twitter where he issued the following message to Jon Jones.

“@JonnyBones congrats Champ. Stop asking for retired fighters, I’ve been waiting to put my hands on you and so have all the fans.”

Jon Jones and Alexander Gustafsson previously met in the octagon at UFC 165 in September of 2013 and ended up delivering a “fight of the year” performance.

After five rounds of back and forth action Jon Jones was awarded the unanimous decision victory over Gustafsson by the judges in attendance.

Who would you rather see Jon Jones fight in his next octagon appearance, Brock Lesnar or Alexander Gustafsson?

Golden State Warriors vs. Utah Jazz series preview

Golden State Warriors vs. Utah Jazz series preview

By: Chris Taylor (Kalapaki Joe’s Staff Writer)

When the Golden State Warriors added Kevin Durant to their already stacked 73-win team this past offseason the message was clear. Nothing less then a championship would be sufficient in 2017.

So far the Warriors seemed poised to make good on the expectation, sweeping the Portland Trailblazers 4 games to 0 in round one of the playoffs.

With that said, sweeping the Utah Jazz will not be as easy.

The Jazz ended the regular season with a 51 and 31 record, finishing as the fifth seed in the NBA’s Western Conference.

Utah proved they are a mentally tough squad in the opening round of this year’s NBA playoffs, defeating the Los Angeles Clippers in a wild seven-game series that culminated with a 104-91 road victory.

In order for Utah to upset the heavily favored Warriors, the Jazz will need center Rudy Gobert to play at his absolute best.

In addition, Utah will need to find a way to shutdown the talent rich Golden State lineup.

The Warriors got back Kevin Durant from injury during their first-round series with Portland, and now boast a lineup that includes Draymond Green, Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson.

With such a talented squad, including a solid bench, this series is really Golden State’s to lose.

Game 1 takes place tonight in at Oracle Arena in Oakland.

Saints Adrian Peterson discusses facing his former team in Week 1

Saints Adrian Peterson discusses facing his former team in Week 1

By: Chris Taylor (Kalapaki Joe’s Staff Writer)

Former NFL MVP Adrian Peterson was cut loose by the Minnesota Vikings this past February, thus becoming a free agent.

After speaking with numerous teams, including the Green Bay Packers, New England Patriots, Oakland Raiders and Seattle Seahawks, “All Day” opted to sign on with the NFC South New Orleans Saints.

Today, Peterson spoke about how excited he is to play behind legendary quarterback Drew Brees and how he feels about playing his former team, the Minnesota Vikings, in Week 1 of this year’s NFL Regular Season.

“Envisioning myself in the backfield with Drew Brees it was like ‘Wow, what will opposing teams do?'”

As for playing his long-time team the Minnesota Vikings in Week 1, Peterson says it was just meant to be.

“It was meant to be.”

Peterson and the New Orleans Saints will invade Minnesota for Monday Night Football on September 11.
