Jon Jones reminds Daniel Cormier he ‘popped his cherry’ in latest Twitter war

MMA: UFC 196-Weigh Ins Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

No, not that way.

Jon Jones and current Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Light Heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier are highly-expected to mix it up one more time at the upcoming UFC 214 event on July 29 in Anaheim, California.

Though the fight hasn’t been officially signed, the two men haven’t wasted time hyping up the potential rematch, as they once again went at it on Twitter.

And it got good.


Of course, “Bones” is referring to being the first man to ever ... defeat Cormier inside the Octagon, taking him out via unanimous decision at UFC 182 back in 2015. Since then, “Bones” has gotten into some trouble in and out of the fighting arena, while “DC” claimed the vacant 205-pound strap and defended it twice.

But, the loss to Jones still lingers, and he could have the chance to finally earn some get-back this summer. Assuming “Bones” doesn’t take a warm-up fight.
