As Jon Jones stews in his New Mexico jail cell, someone please forward him this video he recorded last week with Daniel Cormier. Jones will want to see the final product; the UFC video team did some choice edits. In UFC’s Counterpunch video series, the promotion places two fighters who legitimately hate each other in the same room, sit them in a pair of uncomfortably chairs, and have Joe Rogan moderate the entire ordeal.
This is crazy!!!! *Joe Rogan voice*
With UFC 197 only 24 days away and Jon Jones still in the custody of the state of New Mexico, let’s be reminded that Bones and the current UFC light heavyweight champion really hate everything about one another. Cormier is looking for revenge while Jones looks to pull a “Shawshank Redemption” while at the same time reclaiming his freedom and the UFC gold he was stripped of.
As we speak Daniel Cormier is calling a New Mexico jail, asking for Jones, uttering the phrase “Hey, p***y are you still there?” and then hanging up the phone before Bones can respond.
According to Bernalillo County Metropolitan Detention Center info, Jon Jones is still sitting in cell No. 26 awaiting his bail hearing.
