Jones took to Twitter on Monday to fire back at some Daniel Cormier comments over the weekend. Cormier told CBS Sports that he doesn’t want to engage with Jones any longer, because he “doesn’t have a platform.”
To that, Jones wrote: “That just sounds dumb.” The former UFC light heavyweight champion added: “Every win you get goes on my resume, You know who you dream about at night. I’m sure your wife knows too.”
I don’t have a platform DC? That just sounds dumb. Even after years of suspension I have just as much if not more of a platform than you. Every win you get goes on my resume, You know who you dream about at night. I’m sure your wife knows too— Jon Bones Jones (@JonnyBones) June 25, 2018
Cormier, the current UFC light heavyweight champion, moves up to heavyweight for a true superfight against champion Stipe Miocic at UFC 226 on July 7 in Las Vegas. Meanwhile, Jones is still sitting out a provisional suspension from USADA after testing positive for a steroid last year — in a drug test related to his UFC 214 fight with Cormier.
Jones beat Cormier in that bout by TKO, but the result was overturned by the California State Athletic Commission (CSAC) when the positive drug test was confirmed. Jones is still waiting to get his full sanction from USADA. Cormier has said that he believes Jones was on performance-enhancing drugs the two times they fought. Jones won the first meeting in 2015 by unanimous decision. Jones takes umbrage with those Cormier comments.
At first I thought you were trying to convince the fans I beat you because of performance enhancing drugs but now I’m pretty sure you have convinced yourself too. keep doing that— Jon Bones Jones (@JonnyBones) June 25, 2018
Good thing for you, the next time we fight I’ll be all cleaned up. Let’s see you dominate me this time since I cheated the first two— Jon Bones Jones (@JonnyBones) June 25, 2018
Regarding Cormier’s upcoming fight with Miocic next month, Jones said he’s wishing him well. If for only one reason — he wants to come back and beat “DC” for the heavyweight title.
Good luck in your next fight, I’ve always wanted to be heavyweight champ... who’s your daddy?— Jon Bones Jones (@JonnyBones) June 25, 2018
“Who’s your daddy?” Jones wrote.
UPDATE: The champ has responded.
Jon, you’re a bitch! You’re one now always been one. Sit back and watch me be great, you steroid cheat. Let’s not talk about wives man. Come on, I’m sure with all the shit you’ve done I could get a conversation from your wife. I mean from your girlfriend ,baby mama?— Daniel Cormier (@dc_mma) June 25, 2018
