It’s no surprise that Daniel Cormier and Jon Jones don’t like each other. For the better part of the last three years, Cormier and Jones have been at each other’s throats, issuing death threats on hot mics, throwing shoes, and just generally mocking the other’s very existence. So it shouldn’t shock anyone to learn that two weeks out from their hotly anticipated rematch at UFC 214, Cormier and Jones are back to trashing each other over social media.
This particular verbal skirmish started when Cormier posted a picture training wrestling with All-American Jacob Kasper to his Instagram, talking about how good his wrestling feels and saying he will “dump him on his doped up head” with regards to Jones.
Wrestling with @jacobakasper has been amazing. This is the best my wrestling has felt in a real long time. If I didn't take him down at will last time I know I'm gonna dump him on his doped up head this time. I'll take his ass down when I want to. Hope ur working off ur back a lot Johnny boy!! I'm gonna smash this bum! DC #andstill
Jones responded with a litany of comments on Cormier’s Instagram, mocking Cormier for his wrestling, saying he’s not the wrestler he used to be anymore if Alexander Gustafsson could take him down, talking about Cormier’s “belly”, and claiming Cormier “#AndNeverWere” the champion.
Afterwards, Jones even took to Twitter to point out his comments to Cormier and encourage him to “hollaback.”
Hey Daniel I left you a response on Instagram, Hollaback when you get a chance— Jon Bones Jones (@JonnyBones) July 17, 2017
So Cormier did, cataloging most of Jones’ comments and noting that though fans often say Cormier is obsessed with Jones, Jones’ Instagram tirade would suggest the opposite is true. He then concluded with a postscript going after Jones for his use of “dick pills”.
And they say I'm obsessed. Dance for me boy, keep commenting on all my shit. Watch me work. Show those insecurities. In your moment of judgement you pay close attention to the one that's handing out the punishment. You got two weeks. Play my game! P.S You have a limp Dick and Horrible leg Genetics. #andstill #twoweeks #downgoesjones #urdonejonnyboy
He also chirped Jones a few times on Twitter for good measure.
JOHNNY boy is going down. He's stalking me! And they im obsessed. Stay ur insecure ass off my social media. Ur whipping is coming #andstill pic.twitter.com/vNCwpKWnAr— Daniel Cormier (@dc_mma) July 17, 2017
Shows his education. It should say #neverwas he's dumb https://t.co/GrP8ZMBnQ6— Daniel Cormier (@dc_mma) July 17, 2017
Right, he's a little insecure so he's having to make sure he's always on my shit. Rest assured JOHNNY boy I'm working ;) https://t.co/yVZDGUlNtW— Daniel Cormier (@dc_mma) July 18, 2017
It appears Jones was none-too-impressed with Cormier’s response.
So I have a limp dick? When's the last time you spoke with the Mrs. what grown man comments on another man's dick anyways— Jon Bones Jones (@JonnyBones) July 18, 2017
I have zero respect for you bitch you're going to really hate me by the time I'm done with you— Jon Bones Jones (@JonnyBones) July 18, 2017

Yoel should have never fought Bobby Knux. Could’ve made this fight happen and it would’ve been awesome. If the UFC couldn’t sell this, they should just quit.
Add another to the list of Cuban fighters (I know Jorge is only half) who would be more than happy to beat up on Bisping and likely could do so.
Fuck #bitchping @bisping has every Cuban on him now. It's #hoslap on site. Keep your ass in LA don't come this way https://t.co/X4X0qEyzPa— Jorge Masvidal UFC (@GamebredFighter) July 17, 2017

TODAY IN MMA HISTORY
2015: Michael Bisping won a split decision over Thales Leites in the main event of UFC Fight Night 72.
Cormier and Jones is the best MMA feud, and I’m gonna miss the crap out of it when it’s gone. All MMA fans should be hoping for a DC win so we can get the greatest trilogy in the history of this sport. Stuff like that elevates MMA as a whole and reinforces why we all love this sport.
Take it easy and see y’all tomorrow.
