There’s no love lost between Jon Jones and Daniel Cormier, which has led to some pretty heavy sniping going down from both of them. Daniel Cormier is always more than happy to drudge up Jon Jones’ recent cocaine-related drug-test failure, while Jon Jones recently jumped on the opportunity to talk a little smack to the current light heavyweight champ during a recent Good Morning America appearance.
So of course things are heating up again as they prepare for their rematch at UFC 200 on July 9. Daniel Cormier ordered a special heavy bag for training with Jon Jones’ face and body printed on it, all bruised and bloody from his fight with Alexander Gustafsson. Jones wasn’t impressed, and dropped perhaps the most awkward diss in the history of combat sports. Via his Instagram:
It’s good to see you enjoying your last days as paper champ Daniel. I was actually planning on leaving you alone and letting you enjoy them with your family, then you had to go and put this weird s**t on the Internet. It’s obvious I’m balls deep in your head right now, but you can pause with all that groping there pussy boy. You’ll be getting your ass kicked soon enough, just really hoping these aren’t your tactics for UFC 200. See you soon buddy, train smart. Don’t need you pulling out again. ~The actual light heavyweight champion
That’s some odd phrasing there from Jon, followed up with a return to the old reliable ‘p*ssy’ attack he’s been using since their infamous leaked off-air ESPN conversation. As always, Jon and Daniel can’t keep things civil between each other.
