UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones and challenger Daniel Cormier will fight in the main event at Saturday's UFC 182, but haven't stopped their squabbling. Despite a tepid staredown, the two continued their long-standing war of words as they hurled insults and epithets at one another.
"These guys won't stop!!!," wrote UFC President on his Instagram post documenting the exchange between Cormier and Jones. "This just happened in the fighter meeting and this NEVER happens."
Other fighters on the UFC 182 card also shared their response to what they saw in the fighters' meeting, including Brad Tavares, who faces Nate Marquardt on the event's main card.
