Jon Jones is still on the UFC sidelines as his team is throwing everything they have to avoid four-year suspension. After the critical error made in the hearing, Bones is in big danger. Despite he knocked Daniel Cormier out via violent fashion in their second match, it will be remembered forever as No Contest.
But the minds of many fans and Jon Jones himself haven’t changed much despite the process. The former Light Heavyweight king made that abundantly clear when the UFC’s Twitter account asked if Cormier could be considered the GOAT if he beats heavyweight champ Stipe Miocic at UFC 226.

”If he’s in the conversation, does that make me the motherf**king man?” Jones tweeted.
CBS sports contacted Daniel Cormier regarding Bones’ tweets, but even Daniel Cormier has the ultimate line of tolerance. Despite he is not a trash-talker by nature, he was cynic this time.
”He doesn’t have a platform and I refuse to give him a platform,” Cormier replied before immediately giving him a platform. “He’s a nobody. He has been suspended again. He’s mired in controversy for drug abuse. Your issues are tied to steroids, performance enhancers. You don’t get a platform when you’re like that. It’s like me glorifying Lance Armstrong.”
Cormier also believes that Jones’ results should be severely downgraded. DC mentioned the fact that Bones was fighting only once in the UFC since USADA became more rigorous.
“[Jones] won the fight but, hey, since USADA has gotten involved with the UFC, he only fought one time,” Cormier said. “He has had four fights scheduled. So he fought Ovince [Saint Preux] and he fought me but that second one was a no contest. The Ovince fight was the only time he fought and there was no controversy surrounding it. So I’m pretty sure there was some dirty stuff going on, that’s why the test results were all jacked up in December.”
Daniel Cormier also mentions Jones’ drug test results in the month leading up to their first fight in 2014. Not only Jon Jones had the high levels of cocaine in his blood but his testosterone/epitestosterone ratio was critically low.
Just remember how many times Jones had issues with prohibited substances. Daniel Cormier has written his whole UFC career off with a good reason. And he has a good excuse for two losses!
But we have a question – would you like to see the third fight between Jon Jones and Daniel Cormier? If Jon Jones could be cleared by USADA earlier, we would have seen who the real legendary Light Heavyweight champion is!
