This weekend's LEGEND 2: Invasion was a great example of a promotion that shows a lot of promise but still needs to work out the kinks in their production. Crazy T-100 NFL rappers with cheerleaders is cool and all, but having such things happen in between what felt like every fight tends to make everything drag on a bit too much. That's just me, though, maybe that is what Russian fans are really into, my finger isn't on the pulse of the Russian people.
Anyway, Jon Jones was paid a lot of money to fly out to LEGEND 2: Invasion, put on a seminar at the owner's gym and then basically hang out for a week. This resulted in Jon Jones photobombs of all kinds including this one of Jon Jones awkwardly dancing to help Badr Hari celebrate his victory with the Mike's Gym crew post-fight. If I were a young, inebriated UFC Light Heavyweight Champion I'd probably be doing the same thing.
