However, "Bones" -- much to the dismay, I’m sure, of Matt Hughes -- is still taking shots at his foe.
Appearing on ESPN’s SportsNation (via MMA Fighting), Jones wished "DC" a happy and healthy pregnancy, hoping all is well with the bun in his belly after he landed on it during the melee -- a clever little way to take a pot shot at midsection of Cormier.
It’s no secret Cormier, a former Heavyweight, has had issues in the past losing the weight to hit 205 pounds. His love for Popeye's Chicken may have something to do with that. But, the former Olympian didn’t have any trouble finding the mark in his first attempt to hit the Light Heavyweight limit back at UFC 170 where he faced -- and defeated -- Patrick Cummins in his first fight in the division.
He’ll have to be in top form once again when he tips the scales on Friday Sept., 26, 2014, that’s one day before he goes toe-to-toe against "Bones" at UFC 178 for the division strap.
