UFC 214 media day face-offs: The non-title (but still good) fights edition

LA MIRADA, Calif. – After a UFC 214 press conference yesterday that featured all six title fight competitors, the promotion today held a media day with other fighters at UFC Gym, including former welterweight champion Robbie Lawler and Donald Cerrone.

UFC 214, set for Saturday at Honda Center in Anaheim, Calif., features three championship fights on the pay-per-view main card, which follows prelims on FXX and UFC Fight Pass.


In the main event, light heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier (19-1 MMA, 8-1 UFC) defends his title in a highly anticipated rematch with Jon Jones (22-1 MMA, 16-1 UFC). The co-headliner features champion welterweight champion Tyron Woodley (17-3-1 MMA, 7-2-1 UFC) defending against Demian Maia (25-6 MMA, 19-6 UFC). Also, Cristiane Justino (17-1 MMA, 2-0 UFC) and Tonya Evinger (19-5 MMA, 0-0 UFC) will square off for the vacant women’s featherweight belt.

At today’s media day, Lawler (27-11 MMA, 12-5 UFC) and Cerrone (32-7 MMA, 19-4 UFC), Jimi Manuwa (17-2 MMA, 6-2 UFC) and Volkan Oezdemir (14-1 MMA, 2-0 UFC), and a host of others from the card came face to face, and MMAjunkie was on the scene to capture it all.
