Daniel Cormier fires back at ‘b-tch’ Jon Jones: ‘Sit back and watch me be great’

Daniel Cormier calls Jon Jones a ‘bitch’ and a ‘steroid cheat’ for daring to mention his wife on social media.

MMA: UFC 220- Cormier vs Oezedmir Bob DeChiara-USA TODAY Sports

Jon Jones and Daniel Cormier are at it yet again. And, as always, things got a little personal between the two light heavyweights on social media.

Things kicked off when the UFC posed a question about Daniel Cormier being considered one of the great fighters of all time, which ‘Bones’ wasted no time in denouncing on Twitter.

Cormier, who will move up in weight to challenge Stipe Miocic for the heavyweight title at UFC 226, responded by comparing Jones to drug cheat Lance Armstrong. That’s when Jones, the former pound-for-pound No. 1, fired back by bringing ‘DC’s’ wife into the discussion and mocking his rival for dreaming about him at night.

Cormier didn’t take kindly to those words and warned Jones not to mention his wife, calling the former light heavyweight champ a ‘bitch’ and a ‘steroid cheat’.

Jones, 30, had bested Cormier at UFC 182 and UFC 214. But his knockout win at UFC 214 was overturned to a No Contest after the Jackson-Wink product tested positive for performance-enhancing drugs. Cormier was quickly reinstated as the official light heavyweight champ and Jones was suspended indefinitely and removed from the UFC rankings.

Jones could be suspended for up to four years due to being a repeat offender, which means that, despite their ongoing rivalry, Jones and Cormier may never get the chance to settle their differences in a trilogy bout.
