Daniel Cormier isn’t just going to let the fire cool before facing Jon Jones in January at UFC 182 for the UFC light heavyweight title.
Following comments made by “Bones” during an appearance on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” Cormier has responded.

Cormier was a former standout at Oklahoma State University before becoming an Olympian. He saw his dream of claiming gold fall short after issues with his body due to cutting weight. Jones, meanwhile, became a national champion at Iowa Central Community College and was set to compete on the mats after that before moving to mixed martial arts instead.
With months left before they square off, it doesn’t appear like these two are going to let the other off the hook. Jones recently underwent knee surgery which forced the postponement of the title fight.
