It would appear that the flaming rivalry between reigning UFC light heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier and former title holder Jon Jones may have just once again lit up.
Daniel Cormier suffered the only loss of his mixed martial arts career to Jon Jones back at UFC 182, suffering a unanimous decision defeat to the fighter. The two MMA warriors met inside the octagon once again at UFC 214.
This time around, Jones earned a knockout victory over Cormier. However, the victory was short lived. Jones was stripped of his newly earned UFC light heavyweight title and the victory was overturned to a no contest after it was discovered that the fighter had failed a drug test for UFC 214.
Speaking to MMA Fighting, Daniel Cormier revealed that he still wants to fight Jon Jones again.
“I still feel I can win.” Cormier stated. Catching win of Cormier’s statement, Jon Jones has since decided to let Cormier know that he is up for the challenge.
“Come get me baby,” Jones stated over social media. Check it out below:
