Shortly after Jon Jones revealed that he had suffered a huge cut in training that required stitches, his UFC 178 opponent in Daniel Cormier took to social media. He has already stated that he's going to try and stomp on that injured toe, and now he says that cut will be like a bullseye when they face off. Here's what he said on Instagram, followed by the photoshopped image below:
September 27th I'm gonna put so many of these on ur face @jonnybones. I can't wait everyday I'm dreaming and thinking of you. And I'm gonna take u down and grind my elbow into that cut you got today. Put a bullseye on that thing. Some things should remain private. DC
Alexander Gustafsson also joined the party, posting the following on Social Media:
@jonnybones, really sorry for the deep cut I gave you in our last fight. At least you will have a memory from me every time someone opens it up for you. To not make your other eye jealous for not having a cut, I promise to leave a memory on that one as well next time we fight. Now, take care
Jones has since responded to DC with an instagram video of his own, stating that he has 'heard it all', along with another tweet on the topic:
I can't wait to see the look on Daniel's face once he realizes that I'm nothing like Dan Henderson or Patrick Cummings— Jon Bones Jones (@JonnyBones) August 1, 2014
For what it's worth, Cormier did have some nice things to say about Jones on twitter, stating he thought the champ won against Gustafsson, along with this tweet about him being close to being the greatest of all time in MMA.
"@Joshharrison96: @dc_mma Who's the G.O.A.T in your own opinion?" Anderson Silva Jones is getting close, too bad he has to fight me. :)— Daniel Cormier (@dc_mma) July 31, 2014
