Daniel Cormier is ruthless in his assessment of Jon Jones’ eating habits (and other things) in epic rant

Hungry for revenge

Kevin Beirne

Just because Daniel Cormier won’t be fighting at UFC 197, it doesn’t mean he’s stopping swinging punches.

The light heavyweight champion has not tried to hide his dislike of former UFC champion Jon Jones.

Cormier won the title which was left vacant when Jones was arrested for a hit and run incident that left a pregnant woman with a broken arm.

To date, his only professional defeat came at the hands of Jones at UFC 182 when ‘Bones’ won by unanimous decision.

While we were all looking forward to their re-match at UFC 197, Cormier’s foot injury put an end to that.

But even after offering to pay for his replacement’s training camp, the light heavyweight champion was still taking aim at Jones on Twitter, pulling no lunches punches in a lengthy tirade after Jones called him a coward.
