Days away from the highly anticipated UFC 182 clash between light-heavyweight champion Jon Jones and Daniel Cormier, the two competitors have cut down on the trash talking and begun the final stage of mental preparation for the enthralling encounter.
However, that has not stopped fighters like Ben Askren from interfering on twitter to add fuel to the fire between the two dominant competitors. The One FC welterweight champion taunted Jones by posting a photograph on him placing third in a state tournament behind former UFC fighter Matt Riddle.
Naturally, neither Jones nor Cormier have responded to the tweet as of yet.
Hey @dc_mma you know whats worse than 4th at the Olympics? 3rd to Matt Riddle at the state tourney! @JonnyBones pic.twitter.com/bdEr5xYkuf— Ben Askren (@Benaskren) December 29, 2014
