Jon Jones and Daniel Cormier get into yet another heated exchange on social media.

In a shocking turn of events, the upcoming UFC 232 pay-per-view featuring the return of Jon Jones has been relocated from Las Vegas to Los Angeles after it was revealed that ‘Bones’ had recently tested positive for trace amounts of the anabolic steroid turinabol.

With the Nevada Athletic Commission refusing to license Jones, the UFC was forced to make a last minute switch to California, where Jones will take on Alexander Gustafsson at The Forum in Inglewood. The bout was originally scheduled to take place at the T-Mobile Arena.

The news elicited outrage from fans and fellow fighters, with long-time rival Daniel Cormier putting Jones and USADA on blast on social media.

Cormier’s tweet soon caught the attention of Jones, and it wasn’t long before both fighters started getting personal on Instagram, with Jones making an innuendo about slapping ‘DC’s’ wife on the ‘ass.’

“I could slap your wife on the ass and you could literally do nothing about it. You’re my bitch DC, that will never change… Funny how you’re giving me two posts but said nothing when I asked you to come get your belt back.” - Jon Jones

“You couldn’t do shit you steroid abusing junkie! I swear I would never touch your wife’s flat ass lol. And I didn’t respond I’m not helping you sell ur bum ass fight you drug abusing steroid cheat. F*ck you!” – Daniel Cormier

Despite Jones testing positive for a banned substance, USADA will not be suspending the former light heavyweight champion.

UFC 232: Jones vs. Gustafsson II takes place this weekend, Dec. 29 at The Forum in Inglewood, California.
