Jon Jones' Arrest Won't Affect UFC 197 Title Fight

4/2/2016 10:02am EDT
UFC 197
Jon Jones' recent arrest didn't have any effect on his planned title fight at UFC 197, but a late injury to his opponent and current UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Daniel Cormier has forced the bout to be called off.

Jones appeared in a New Mexico court on Thursday, admitting to a violation of the probation he received for his felony hit-and-run case last fall. That stemmed from a Mar. 24 incident in which the former light heavyweight champion was pulled over for five traffic violations, and was caught on camera cursing at a police officer.

He will contest those charges at a separate hear...

3/25/2016 9:03am EDT
Esquire Network is capitalizing on the renewed popularity of the O.J. Simpson murder trial by bringing the courtroom footage back to television. The network announced Thursday that it will air a "12-hour special" called The Real O.J. Simpson Trial on Sunday, Apr. 3 starting at 9 a.m.

But the program isn't actually a special, nor is it a pure re-broadcast of video from the trial. Instead, the network has divided up the material into a dozen one-hour "recaps" with each hour focusing on a particular sampling of footage from the trial that took place between Nov. 1994 and Oct. 1995.
