Ah, so this is why Daniel Cormier has been calling out Jon Jones for quite some time now. According to the recent episode of the MMARoasted podcast, the owner of TrauMMA apparel (Todd Rexx) broke to the MMA world a story of how Daniel Cormier and Jon Jones nearly got into a brawl after the 2011 MMA Awards in Las Vegas. Massive props to TapASnap for the transcription of the audio clip. Now get your morning dose of hearty MMA beef below. At the time we were sponsoring Daniel, so I went to the awards with Daniel\u2026 I sat next to Jon Jones through the entire awards, and we talked the whole time, and it seemed like he was really cool and it kinda changed my thoughts on him, for the time being. Then afterwards, my wife had texted me during the awards to say she got a call from this dude named Lou Dibona, who told her that Jon Jones was leaving the forum, and that there was some sponsorship availability if we were interested. So in the lobby, I was with Daniel, Daniel took a phone call, and I walked over to Jon who\u2019s getting ransacked by people, and I told him that Lou Dibona hit us up about sponsorship and he was like \u201cDon\u2019t you sponsor Daniel?\u201d I was like \u2018yeah.\u2019 He was like \u2018I don\u2019t want to f\u2014 with nobody who f\u2014s with him.\u2019 And I was like \u2018really.\u2019 And he was like \u2018no disrespect to you, man, but if you sponsor Daniel, then I don\u2019t want to f\u2014 with you guys. \u201cAnd I was like \u2018wow.\u2019 Daniel was on the phone, he hung up the phone and walked over to me and said \u2018what did he just say to you?\u2019 I was like \u2018don\u2019t worry about it.\u2019 and he was like \u2018no man, he talked s\u2014 didn\u2019t he?\u2019And I was like \u2018well, yah.\u2019 And he was like \u2018what did he say?\u2019 And I was like \u2018don\u2019t worry about it man. Let\u2019s get something to eat.\u2019 And he was like \u2018no man, if someone talks shit about you, I tell you.\u2019 So I said \u2018he told me he doesn\u2019t want to f\u2014 with TrauMMA because we sponsor you.\u2019 And he was like \u2018he said that?\u2019 And I was like \u2018yah.\u2019 And he walked away. And I was like \u2018dude, don\u2019t go start s\u2014. And he was like half way there and he said \u2018dude, did he really say that?\u2019 And I was like \u2018Yah he did.\u2019 So at that point Jon Jones and Malki Kawa are getting into a limo, and Daniel walked outside and grabbed Jon by the arm, and spun him around and was like \u2018dude, you got f\u2014\u2014 problem with me?\u2019 And I was like \u2018oh my God.\u2019 So they are facing off Jon said \u2018Yo, I think that you, King Mo, and Rashad Evans, ya\u2019ll full of yourselves.\u2019 He just talked s\u2014 about Daniel. They were like in each other\u2019s face. Daniel was like \u2018mother f\u2014\u2013 you don\u2019t know anything about me. I\u2019m a grown ass man. This all started when you claimed to be this wrestling aficionado, and when you met me, you didn\u2019t know who I was. Motherf\u2014\u2013 you knew who I was. I knew every wrestler when I was coming up.\u2019 And I was like 'Wow, they nearly fought.' And you were like 'Damn, that could have been really good Street MMA.' And I was like 'Wow, I'm going to be forced to talk like this for the remainder of the day.' And you were like 'Yeah, I know. Me too.' And then we both cried in each other's arms. The end.
