It’s no secret at this point in time that UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Daniel Cormier and former champion Jon Jones aren’t the best of friends.
The two came together at the UFC Summer Kickoff Press Conference and they had quite the exchange, which was started by the champion.
“So, I’m sitting here, and I see him. Like, I see him. He’s over there. But is he really going to be in Anaheim? Is this guy really going to go to the fight? Is this guy going to mess this up again by doing steroids or snorting cocaine or sandblasting prostitutes? What’s this guy going to do to mess this up this time?” says Cormier.
Jones, who soundly defeated DC at UFC 182, would then issue this brief response to his rival.
“Prostitutes? I beat you after a weekend of cocaine,” says Jones.
It’s going to be a few months before the two collide once again at UFC 214, which is just over a year after Jones was suspended by USADA for a failed drug test prior to UFC 200.
DC has since defended the gold twice since their first meeting, defeating the duo of Alexander Gustafsson and Anthony Johnson.
UFC 214 takes place on Saturday, July 29 from the Honda Center in Anaheim, California with Daniel Cormier and Jon Jones headlining. Fightful is providing live coverage of the event, with a post-show podcast to follow.
