It looks like Daniel Cormier and Jon Jones are restarting their rivalry right where they left off.
With Jones nearing the end of his suspension for banned substances ingested last year, and with Cormier having recently defended his light heavyweight title, it looks increasingly likely that the two are gearing up for another meeting.
And as such, the two are getting themselves — and the fans — ready.
The two have taken to twitter to once again fire shots at the other. It started when Cormier responded to a fan that Jones lacked knockout power, even after a famous powerlifting regime and (according to Cormier) a steroid cycle.
He won't. He doesn't have that ability. He never has. Even when he juiced his way to deadlifting 600lbs he couldn't KO Ovince https://t.co/wEXoAoDtEJ

Jones, unsurprisingly, wasn’t impressed.

While it’s uncertain when the two will end up facing off, Jones will be eligible for a return in mid-July, right in time for international fight week.
