Daniel Cormier became the new light heavyweight champion on Saturday at UFC 187 by submitting Anthony Johnson in the third round. What Cormier said afterward, though, is what really stood out.
“I have a message for one man, Jon Jones,” Cormier said. “Get your sh*t together, I’m waiting for you.”
Jones, who defeated Cormier by decision on Jan. 3 at UFC 182, is serving an indefinite suspension while facing felony hit-and-run charges. There’s no timetable as to when Jones’ legal situation will clear up, but he could face jail time if convicted. In any case, it’s clear Cormier is ready for a rematch.
This is a “mic drop” moment made better by the fact that Cormier actually dropped the mic afterward.
