Jon Jones Rips Daniel Cormier On Twitter: ‘Your Wife Knows Who You Dream About At Night’

Jon Jones Rips Daniel Cormier On Twitter: ‘Your Wife Knows Who You Dream About At Night’

Light heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier and former champion Jon ‘Bones’ Jones represents one of the bitter rivalries in the history of the UFC and MMA.

That’s no secret, considering the memorable lead-up to their first fight at UFC 182, where Jones scores a unanimous decision win, which marked Jones eighth consecutive UFC title defense.

Both UFC stars lock horns again in a rematched at UFC 214 back in July, where Jones knocked out Cormier with a dramatic flurry of third-round strikes to reclaim the UFC light heavyweight championship. Later it was revealed Jones failed an out-of-competition drug test conducted July 28, which came up positive for metabolites of turinabol, a banned steroid. Due to of that his win was overturned to a no contest, and Cormier was awarded back the light heavyweight title.

There is no timetable for Jon Jones to return to Octagon after his latest run-in with USADA and facing a lengthy suspension.

Daniel Cormier who’s currently slated to face Stipe Miocic at UFC 226 this July in Las Vegas, Nevada and have an opportunity to become the second fighter to hold two titles in different weight classes simultaneously in the UFC.

Jones threw more darts at Cormier on Monday after caught wind of ‘DC’s‘ remarks about the size of his platform.

“I don’t have a platform DC? That just sounds dumb,” Jones said. “Even after years of suspension I have just as much if not more of a platform than you. Every win you get goes on my resume, You know who you dream about at night. I’m sure your wife knows too.”

“At first I thought you were trying to convince the fans I beat you because of performance enhancing drugs but now I’m pretty sure you have convinced yourself too,” Jones said. “Keep doing that. The next time we fight I’ll be all cleaned up. Let’s see you dominate me this time since I cheated the first two.”

No doubt Jones outside the cage activities and steroid derailed his career.

Daniel Cormier may be the best fighter never to have failed the drug test. Depending on one’s opinion, he could retire,  technically the greatest fighter in a light heavyweight division.

The chances of Cormier vs Jones trilogy is unlikely for foreseeable future. But Cormier told ESPN’s Ariel Helwani that he wants to fight Jones one more time before his retirement.
