Martial Arts – UFC: Jon Jones Takes Another Dig At His Adversary Daniel Cormier
Jon Jones denoted his UFC return against Alexander Gustafsson at UFC 232 in terrific mold and following his success over the Swedish star, Jones did not take much time so as to shoot the principal shot at most outstanding opponent Daniel Cormier, guaranteeing the last was never a ‘champ-champ’.
In the headliner of UFC 232, Jon Jones made his arrival to the UFC out of the blue since UFC 214 of every 2017. Jones, who confronted Alexander Gustafsson in a rematch from UFC 165 from 2013, thoroughly crushed ‘The Mauler’ by means of TKO in the third round of their battle to win the UFC Light Heavyweight Championship for the record third time in his profession.
While talking with MMAjunkie in the post-battle Press Conference, Jon Jones took one more real shot at most outstanding adversary Daniel Cormier, expressing that DC is fairly a calm person and possibly prefers to talk on the off chance that it is to ruin Jones and his heritage.
“When it comes to Daniel Cormier, he’s always quiet, unless he’s speaking out to discredit me and my legacy and my achievements. Every time he opens his mouth, and it works against him, I see the fans’ reaction. They’re like, ‘Dude, leave Jon Jones alone for once. He beat you. You sound so bitter.’ He works his hardest to try to discredit and de-legitimize the fact that I’ve beat him twice, and the only thing I want to de-legitimize as retaliation is his claim of being the light heavyweight champion”
Jones further expressed that DC was never the Light Heavyweight Champion since he has not beaten the three-time champion and should not consider himself the ‘champ-champ’.
Jon Jones has just demonstrated his enthusiasm for a third-battle with Daniel Cormier, in any case, the inquiry remains is will Jones and DC crash in Light Heavyweight or go one up to Heavyweight so as to finish their set of three?
Jon Jones: “There will always be an asterisk next to the idea of [Daniel Cormier] being a champ champ. The only way he can shut me up is to beat my ass.”

You can take all the steroids in the world, but that won’t help you have the fight IQ and balance required to handle Alexander Gustafsson the way Jon Jones just did.
He owns expensive real estate in Daniel Cormier’s head. #UFC232
