A war of words has broken out again between bitter rivals Jon Jones and Daniel Cormier, and this time it appears to be getting increasingly personal.
It all began when someone posted a clip of Cormier responding to a question about whether he could be consider the Greatest Of All Time if he defeated Stipe Miocic at UFC 226.
“I’m fighting these dudes at 39 years old and still getting my hand raised,” Cormier replied. “So, yes, put me in the conversation.”
“What have you done for me lately?” Jones, who has now defeated Cormier twice in the Octagon, then responded on Twitter. “Let’s just be real and stop asking this question.”
DC then continued the feud during an interview on CBS Sports when asked about his greatest enemy.
“[Jones] doesn’t have a platform and I refuse to give him a platform,” Cormier said. “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.”
It didn’t take long for Jones to respond.
“I don’t have a platform DC?” Jones blasted back. “That just sounds dumb. 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. keep doing that.
“Good thing for you, 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.
“Good luck in your next fight, I’ve always wanted to be heavyweight champ… who’s your daddy?”
Bringing family into the trash-talk was always a risky move and needless to say Cormier was quick to fight fire with fire.
“Jon, you’re a bitch! You’re one now always been one. Sit back and watch me be great, you steroid cheat. Let’s not talk about wives man. Come on, I’m sure with all the shit you’ve done I could get a conversation from your wife. I mean from your girlfriend ,baby mama?”
