Following Jon Jones’ Case, Daniel Cormier Is Now Ignoring USADA

Former UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones has been a heated rival of Daniel Cormier’s for quite some time. The former champion gave D.C. the only loss on his record in their first octagon outing.

Jon Jones was forced to pull out of their rematch at UFC 200 after failing a drug test. After finishing out a year-long suspension, Jones fought Cormier at UFC 214.

However, the fight’s result was overturned to a disqualification after Jon Jones failed yet another drug test. This time, Jones was issues a 15-month suspension and will once again be eligible to compete within the UFC on Oct. 28, 2018.

Speaking on FOX Sports, Daniel Cormier eventually offered his opinion on the recent news. The two-division UFC champion revealed that he does not believe USADA has the right to visit his home in the middle of the night for random drug tests anymore.

“I’m the UFC double champion. I have bosses in the back and I’m talking about this guy because I have too. I’ve moved past that guy. I went about my business. I went and won another title. Now this guy’s suspension is up, so we’ll see what happens.”

“I think people get excited, people get excited about the prospect of us fighting again, but I’ve got a fight with Brock Lesnar. Why would I look back? Why would I look back to Jones now when I’ve got a fight? Obviously as a competitor I want to fight the guy whose beat me twice, but I’ve got a fight. Why go back? I’ve got a bigger fight with Brock Lesnar, why should I go back?”

“Here’s the deal: When it comes to USADA, they can’t come to my house anymore at 6 a.m. What’s the point? They’ve been to my house 15 times. USADA, don’t come to my house anymore. You don’t need too. You don’t need to come. I’m not going to fail a test, I’m not going to make any mistakes, I’m not going to have to sit up there and go, ‘I’m serious this time, guys. I promise I wasn’t really trying to cheat.’ It’s never going to happen with me. 70 times. 70 times since I started wrestling internationally and I’ve never made a mistake. It’s not that hard. So even to be sitting here and doing this again shows – guys are ridiculous.”

Now Daniel Cormier has taken to social media to reveal that he is actively ignoring calls from USADA. Check it out below.
