Jon Jones Blasts Daniel Cormier: ‘Conor McGregor Was An Actual Double Champ’

Jon Jones has laid out a challenge to the two-weight UFC champion Daniel Cormier to fight him again.

The rivalry between Jon Jones and Daniel Cormier appears to be heating up once and again and it’s Jones who has fired off the most recent shot.

Speaking in an interview on the Jim Rome podcast this past week, Cormier made his feelings clear about Jones’ previous failed drugs test.

“My deal’s this, I never once said he didn’t win the fight. I’ve never said that. Even when people would tell me ‘no you didn’t get a fair shake, it’s not cool, he cheated’, I said the guy won the fights,” Cormier said. “Cause I’ve always said, I’m sure he’s not the only guy I’ve ever fought who’s on steroids. I’ve always said that. I’ve been very open about that but when you say a pinch of salt — why was the pinch of salt there?”

“Why was it there without any explanation of why it got there? That’s my question. Why didn’t I have a pinch of salt in the swimming pool? That’s where my issue is. You win the fight, go ahead and win the fight but don’t leave anything to question is my response. Don’t have a pinch of salt. Don’t have tainted sex pills. Just don’t have that stuff and then we never have these discussions to discredit the things that you have done. That’s my response.”

Jones apparently saw what Cormier said and this morning he took to his Twitter account to respond to Cormier’s comments.

“‘Pinch of salt, no pinch of salt. You still had steroids in your system in a fist fight,” Cormier stated. “Not cool.'”

“Daddys baby still out there whining, What proud “double Champion” just vacates his belt because someone else returns to the sport?”

Jones put out a unique challenge to Cormier to fight him for a third time.

“Fight me one more time and prove you’re actually the champ champ,” Jones tweeted. I’ll donate $100,000 to a charity in San Diego if you accept. Conor McGregor was an actual double Champ, the whole world knows your claim is a freaking joke. You’re more than welcome to be my first title defense.”

Will Jones fight Cormier for a third time? The former UFC light heavyweight champion returns to action on Dec. 29 when he faces Alexander Gustafsson at UFC 232.
