UFC light heavyweight champ Jon Jones beefs with Tyson Griffin on Twitter: 'I could use a waterboy'

USA TODAY Sports

Check out this exchange between Griffin and "Bones" Jones on Twitter. After being rebuked by the lightweight, the 205 lb. champ offers him a new career opportunity.

Earlier this week, UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones declared that he has no interest in facing former Strikeforce heavyweight champ Daniel Cormier. Cormier recently made his 205 lb. debut at UFC 170 and has long been engaged in calling out "Bones."

Wednesday night on Twitter, UF lightweight Tyson Griffin blasted Jones for his disinterest in the bout. When Jones responded to him via direct message, Griffin chose to make the discussion public:

Jones is currently slated to defend his title against Glover Teixeira at UFC 172. The event will take place at the Baltimore Arena in Baltimore, MD.
