New, 167 comments

After Daniel Cormier said he would pay for Ovince Saint Preux's camp to face Jon Jones at UFC 197, Jones had a strong response. This led Cormier to go off on Jones on Twitter.

Daniel Cormier is mad. The UFC light heavyweight champion was forced out of UFC 197 due to an injury, to which former opponent Jon Jones had a biting response. After Cormier offered to cover replacement Ovince Saint Preux's training camp costs (and ultimately being turned down), Jones had some more to say. Well tonight, Cormier turned to social media to really go off on his rival:

Other that humorously misspelling "punch" with the word lunch, this was pretty harsh. You know it won't take Jones long to respond. And on and on the rivals will go. Meanwhile, Jones fights OSP in the main event of UFC 197 for an interim title.
