Former UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones and reigning title holder Daniel Cormier have formed a heated rivalry over the years. Now “Bones” Jones has decided to retaliate in their latest social media war of words.
The two mixed martial arts warriors first met inside the octagon at UFC 182, with Jones dishing out the only loss on Cormier’s record with a unanimous decision. The fighter’s would then go toe-to-toe once again at UFC 214, with Jones launching a title earning knockout victory over his opponent.
However, the victory was short lived. Jones was stripped of his title, the knockout win was overturned to a no contest and Cormier was ultimately reinstated as the division’s champion. Jon Jones failed his drug test for UFC 214.
Daniel Cormier recently reignited the rivalry by claiming that the he is still interested in a trilogy rematch against the former champion, feeling that he could still win. Jon Jones would quickly take to social media to leave the following response:
“Come get me baby.”
