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:
Jones and Cormier continue Twitter war
Round four in the Jon Jones vs. Daniel Cormier Twitter beef got pretty nasty.
Coward is running from the scene of a crime without checking on person you hurt. Coward is refusing to fight Gustafson. Coward is ufc 151— Daniel Cormier (@dc_mma) April 4, 2016

O my god jones is cool he took late notice fight, yea I'd fight osp too. I'd do it on 1 day notice. Harder fight you'd tuck ur tail again— Daniel Cormier (@dc_mma) April 4, 2016
Remember jones I didn't call u coward when u moved our 1st fight due to injury hypocrite. That's biggest word I'll use when talking to u.— Daniel Cormier (@dc_mma) April 5, 2016
Last tweet. Jon ur dumb! Like really dumb. Get off ur high horse and stop riding the white horse. Junkie , I'm gonna rip ur head off!— Daniel Cormier (@dc_mma) April 5, 2016
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.
