UFC celebrity Jon Jones mirrored on the 6-calendar year anniversary of his first fight with Daniel Cormier, saying it established a “hater” permanently.
Jones and Cormier very first met on Jan. 3, 2015, at UFC 182: Jones vs. Cormier. At the time Jones was the UFC light heavyweight winner and Cormier was hard him for the belt. The two went five hard rounds that night, with Jones profitable a unanimous decision in a “Fight of the Night” successful general performance by both adult males. The combat would mark what would flip out to be a extensive-lasting rivalry involving the two, who also rematched in 2017 at UFC 214.
In the several years considering the fact that their very first meeting, Jones has experienced many difficulties with USADA and the athletic commissions in regards to drug screening, something which Cormier has not taken flippantly in the a long time since, primarily in the 2nd fight exactly where Jones tested positive for PEDs after head kicking Cormier. On the 6-calendar year anniversary of their 1st assembly at UFC 182, Jones took to his social media on Sunday to troll Cormier. The rivalry amongst these two is not dead.
Be aware: Jones later deleted the tweets, but listed here they are.
“On this working day in record, I designed a hater forever… Stipe is your rival I’m your top-quality.”
It’s incredible that this rivalry continues to burn up potent six a long time afterwards. So much has occurred due to the fact then, with Cormier getting a UFC winner at the two light heavyweight and heavyweight. Jones, in the meantime, gained and misplaced his 205lbs title a number of occasions prior to finally generating the transfer up to heavyweight for 2021.
Despite the fact that Cormier is a retired fighter now, he showed in his trilogy struggle at UFC 252 with UFC heavyweight champion Stipe Miocic that he even now has some fuel left in the tank at age 41. But the only way he would appear back again is for a huge combat. Possibly that could be a Jones trilogy struggle one working day, but at heavyweight instead.
Do you imagine we will ever see a trilogy combat involving Jon Jones and Daniel Cormier at heavyweight?
