UFC light heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier has come forward with a statement concerning former title holder and heated rival Jon Jones, following Jones’ recent CSAC hearing.
Jon Jones failed his drug test for UFC 214, stripping the fighter of his UFC light heavyweight title once again. The match up was Jones’ big octagon return, as the fighter was coming off of a previous suspension due to a failed drug test.
For the fight, Jones knocked out Daniel Cormier for the title. But, Cormier has since been reinstated as the division’s champion and the loss has been overturned to a no contest.
The California State Athletic Commission (CSAC) recently held a hearing for the case, offering Jones a chance to plead his side of the incident. However, Jones was ultimately fined the maximum total of $200,000 and had his fighting license revoked.
Speaking to TMZ Sports about the hearing’s outcome, Daniel Cormier has decided to offer his thoughts.
“No, I don’t feel bad for him. He put himself in all these situations. That’s his reality now. I’ve got bigger fish to fry, Stipe Miocic, to become a two-division champion. Maybe he’ll get an opportunity to take both belts from [me].”
