Tweet of the day: Jon Jones asks Cormier: 'You on your way p*ssy?'

New, comments

Hey, Jon Jones is talking trash to Daniel Cormier again!

Jayne Kamin-Oncea-USA TODAY Sports

Jon Jones and Daniel Cormier are going to rematch each other in all likelihood. Jones said he wants his UFC LHW belt back from Daniel, whom he defeated at UFC 182 he was stripped after a hit-and-run crash. Cormier of course then went on to capture the vacant belt vs. Anthony Johnson, and now "Bones" is cleared for competition and at the ready to return to the Octagon.

With that in mind, let's recap yesterday's back-and-forth between these two rivals, which began with Jones challenging Cormier to see him at the opening of Greg Jackson's new MMA academy in Albuquerque. Jones took the subtweeting route, not even bothering to tag Cormier once, but Cormier responded anyway when it was brought to his attention.

Aaaaand drumroll please....

Just in case he deletes it, and frankly he's done nothing in his past to suggest he would EVER do such a thing, here's the screenshot:

"The Garden" refers to Cormier saying on UFC Tonight that he would not fight Jones at New York's Madison Square Garden, which the UFC has lined up for an event in April 2016 even though MMA is not legalized in the state. I think you know where the "pussy" part of the tweet stems from.

Here we go again!
