Daniel Cormier got angry on Jon Jones’s Twitter video humiliation saying, “you’re still dumb”

Daniel Cormier on UFC 254

Daniel Cormier fires back after Jon Jones posted a video clip from their UFC 214 bout. However, Jones posted the video after Cormier’s comment on a recent podcast.

DC fought Jones twice at a light heavyweight. The first fight took place in 2015, where Jones successfully defended the light heavyweight belt and won UFC 182 fight via unanimous decision. Further, the next fight at UFC 214 ended up with controversy. Although Bones knocked the former UFC two-division champion out, California State Athletic Commission (CSAC) overturned the result because of Jones’s drug abuse involvement. Therefore, Jones received a 15-month suspension order and returned to the octagon at UFC 232 after severing the suspension time.

Daniel Cormier on Jon Jones’s knockout power

During a recent edition of the “DC & Helwani” podcast, DC conveyed his opinions on Jones’ knockout rule or lack thereof. Cormier talked about Jones’s positive and negative sides.

However, DC’s comment on Jones’s knockout power triggered him out. “Jon Jones will not knockout anybody (at heavyweight). He doesn’t hit hard enough. If he couldn’t knock these dudes out at 205, he’s not knocking these heavyweight outs,” Cormier said on DC & Helwani.

In response to this comment, Jones posted the video clip from their UFC 214 fight, in which Jones knocked out Cormier with continuous kicks. Though these kicks were legit and DC still regrets that fight. “The good memories last, but the bad memories haunt you,” the former champion said.  

Nevertheless, the video is humiliating to the retired champ, and he replied“There is a difference punch vs kick, you’re still as dumb as you’ve always been, you’ll never surprise me.”

Further, DC also reminded him that the fight was invalid too. “And lastly, this fight didn’t count if you forgot there was an issue…… remember?” he wrote.

The fight took place while Jones was in Turinabol, and Daniel Cormier believes he has good reason to claim that fight null and ineffective.
