Daniel Cormier: “Jon Jones Is A Steroid Cheater And He Doesn’t Have The Right To Grant Me Anything!”
Jon Jones was earlier talking that he wants to fight Daniel Cormier for the third and fourth time. But he recently stated that he has no interest in facing DC for the third time. Let’s remember, “Bones,” said he “has no reason to fight Cormier for the third time because he has nothing to prove”. It looks like Daniel Cormier is not thrilled by Jones’ approach. He is angry since he believes such a cheater has no right to decide. (via MMAJunkie.com)
“Giving me a shot?” Cormier asked following his UFC 230 win over Derrick Lewis. “Seriously – giving me a shot? Here’s the deal when it comes to Jones: It’s hard for me to really take anything seriously because you say, ‘I don’t want to give you a shot,’ and, ‘You don’t deserve it. I beat you.’ He said he knocked me out, which he did, and you guys know I’ve always said he won the fight. He once put like a video up of a little girl kicking a girl in the head. I said, ‘Look, man – she set that kick up perfect. But you were on steroids, dog. You can’t use that.’ It’s the same thing.”
Jon Jones defeated Cormier two times, at UFC 192 and UFC 214. But the victory on July 29, 2017, was overturned after his test samples were positive on Turinabol. Since it was his third offense, “Bones” could get a four-year suspension. But in the end, he slipped through with a 15-month ban following “substantial assistance rule”. Cormier called him “a cheater and a snitch” who betrayed his teammates to get a reduced sentence.
Daniel Cormier continued provoking Jon Jones.
“I’m sure USADA said, whatever, but you still had steroids in your system. It does not matter. You can’t be on steroids in no way, shape or form. That’s not fair.”
Daniel Cormier commented that he is the champ because Jones can’t live without troubles. He also says that “Bones” should take a look at himself in the first place.
“For him to say, ‘I don’t think he deserves a title shot,’ or, ‘I’m not going to grant him’ – who are you to grant me anything?” Cormier asked. “I’m the guy that’s been here this whole time. Three years I’ve been the light heavyweight champion because this dude can’t stay out of trouble.”
“That dude actually got in so much (expletive) that they just said, ‘Here, DC, you can have the belt back’ last year after he knocked me out. Like, seriously, how crazy must the guy that won be for them to go, ‘Hey, man, you can just have this back, seriously, because we know with you, (expletive)’s safe. That (expletive)’s safe in San Jose. With you, it’s safe, but with this dude? Like, we don’t know what he’s going to do.’ So they just gave it back.”
Also, Daniel Cormier doesn’t believe Jon Jones could remain “on the right track” long enough.
“I’m not sure if he wins in December and then gets in trouble again they don’t go, ‘Hey, DC, you want this thing back?’” Cormier said. “I mean, seriously.”
Jones Vs Gustafsson will headline UFC 232. Daniel Cormier will be stripped of the UFC Light Heavyweight title as soon as “Viking” and “Bones” collide. Also, “DC” plans to fight Brock Lesnar in 2019. He has announced retirement when he turns 40 years old.
“Bones” is the only man who was stripped of the title three times. What do you think, is there any chances to see Jones Vs Cormier 3 before the two-division champion officially retires?
