Video: Jon Jones and Anthony Johnson prank freaked-out Dana White with press conference fight

Jaysus, Dana really didn't want that to happen again.

The UFC President's blood pressure needs to be checked after two fighters fooled him into thinking they were about to go at it on stage.

Jon Jones and Daniel Cormier's press conference last summer ended in a brawl at the MGM Grand Hotel and White thought that the light heavyweight champion was up to the same antics again tonight.

But Jones and his next opponent, Anthony Johnson, had the whole thing planned out as they came forehead to forehead, shoved one another and looked to be coming back for more in a recreation of the fight before the actual fight in Vegas back in August.

But Dana White was there to throw himself in the way this time, determined that there would be no such embarrassments and, by God, he really went for it - only to find out that the two were taking the piss out of him.

He took it well, in fairness. Well played, lads.
