Daniel Cormier and Jon Jones likely won’t be sitting down and enjoying a nice seafood dinner anytime soon.
Jones, the current UFC light heavyweight champion, and Cormier have exchanged some choice words for one another over the past several months.
Now, as Cormier prepares to make his UFC debut this April against Frank Mir, “DC” isn’t just forgetting entirely about Jones.
“Jon Jones, you’re firing me up,” Cormier said. “I’m coming to find him. Where I’m from, you don’t tell a man to shut up. That’s one thing you don’t do. Jon Jones, you and I will get it done.”
Cormier, who was providing analysis on Fuel TV over the past weekend for UFC 156, has stated he could drop to 205 pounds and face Jones if the opportunity comes up. Jones, meanwhile, recently said that the ex-Olympian wasn’t really in the running to compete for the belt he wears.
Jones will face Chael Sonnen in his next title defense the same month Cormier-Mir takes place.
