Jon Jones and Daniel Cormier jaw on twitter after brawl

Jon Jones and Daniel Cormier, who battle for the UFC light heavyweight title at UFC 178, decided that September 27th was too far away before they were allowed to get their hands on each other, so they went at it at media day this afternoon instead.

The brawl is still very fresh, happening under an hour ago at the time of this writing. You can watch the video and see photos of the brawl right here.

Thus the twitter war commenced:

Needless to say that if this fight actually goes down at UFC 178, the pay-per-view buys will be in the astronomical range.
