Jon Jones and Daniel Cormier trade barbs on social media

Jon Jones and Daniel Cormier. The feud that will never end.

By Oscar Willis - 4 Sep 2018

There are a few guarantees in life. Death, taxes and Jon Jones vs. Daniel Cormier.

Despite Jones currently serving an enforced sabbatical, and despite Cormier riding a high of being a UFC double champion, the pair still can’t seem to let their personal lives get in the way of their dislike for one and other.

This time, the feud was reignited after Jones voiced his opinion that Cormier had no legitimacy in his title of ‘champ-champ’, saying that once he returned and dethroned his rival, fans would know who was the real two weight world champion.

“A part of me was upset at first [at Cormier’s win for the heavyweight title],” Jones said, speaking with RT. “First, I was surprised. Then I became a little upset because Daniel Cormier was crowned the first heavyweight and light heavyweight champion and in my heart I know that Daniel Cormier is not the light heavyweight champion, so it bothered me at first.

“At the same time, I feel like when I come back into the game and get my light heavyweight championship back and become a heavyweight champion simultaneously, I feel like the fans will know that I’m truly the first heavyweight and light heavyweight champion.”

After hearing those comments, Cormier fired back, reminding Jones of his current predicament in regards to banned substances.

Naturally, Jones fired back.
