I share my thoughts on what it was about the Jones and Cormier rivalry that made it such a pay-per-view success.    -Jon Jones vs. Brock Lesnar? With Jones recent call-out of Lesnar after defeating Cormier at UFC 214, how likely is the potential superfight? Lesnar still needs to finish serving his one year suspension before he would be eligible to fight again, so it's possible we see Jones in the cage again before a potential fight with Brock.   -UFC News: WME-IMG Receives $1B Investment   The UFC's parent company has taken on a $1.1 Billion investment, and plans to buy out some of the minority owners of the UFC, including UFC President Dana White, former UFC owners Lorenzo and Frank Fertitta, and Flash Entertainment Group.    -Ian McCall Details Health and Brain Issues, and Regrets MMA   UFC flyweight Ian McCall discussed his health issues on The MMA Hour wit Ariel Helwani this week. McCall detailed some of the health issues he has been dealing with, which include symptoms of traumatic brain injury. I break down some of the statements from the interview and share my thoughts on McCall's situation.  _________________________________________________________   The MMA Word is a podcast that brings you an unfiltered look into the sport of mixed martial arts.
