Daniel Cormier is planning on giving Jon Jones a taste of his strength in January when they meet for the UFC light heavyweight title at UFC 182.

Over the weekend, “DC” returned home to Louisiana and “freshened” up on his skills in a way that cannot be taught inside a gym.

Cormier explained on Instagram why he believes “Louisiana boys are so tough” by posting a picture of his son playing tackle football in the yard.

“We get together at these family things as kids and we play football, we actually wrestle in the grass, we box and we fight and my son fit right in,” he wrote. “I guess that Cajun blood knows how to find it’s way to the surface.”
