Daniel Cormier reacts to UFC's reinstatement of Jon Jones

On Friday, the UFC announced the official reinstatement of former light heavyweight champion Jon "Bones" Jones. Current champion - and rival to Jones - Daniel "DC" Cormier had a few words on the matter. As usual, "DC" kept it classy.

Congrats to Jon "Bones" Jones on his reinstatement to the UFC. For MMA fans this is a good day. A guy that has shown to be one of the greatest fighters of all time is back. As a competitor there could be no other outcome and this is the best news I've heard in a long time. Jon has said the right things and his actions are backing his words up. We all hope this is the last time we have to deal with anything like that. And lastly as a fan u get to see see 2 of the best fighters compete against each other. With that being said I can't wait to compete against him again. -DC
