‘DC' wants Jon Jones to turn full heel.
The UFC light-heavyweight competitor believes that the division's champion, Jon Jones, should embrace his inner heel, and even recommends he take a page out of boxing superstar Floyd Mayweather's book.
Daniel Cormier made the comparison between the two fighters, mainly that that people dislike them, but tune in to watch them win all the time.
"If I was Jon Jones, being that people seem to want to dislike him, I would go 100 percent Floyd Mayweather Jr.," he told MMAJunkie.com. "He wins all the time, and people dislike him, but they always tune into see him."
Jones has come under some significant scrutiny from the media in the past few weeks, particularly following his supposed homophobic social media debacle ahead of UFC 172. Fans embraced the opportunity to attack Jones for the comments he apparently didn't post, especially since they simply enjoyed hating him.
Cormier offers the champ some advice on the matter:
"People want to believe Jon's not being 100 percent real with us," he said. "They're thinking that we're seeing kind of an act, so give them you. If they believe you're a complete ass, then just be an ass."
