Jon Jones towels Daniel Cormier, slams ‘cheating a**hole’ ahead of UFC 214

Jon Jones is back at it again.

The former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Light Heavyweight champion of the world took to social media this week to update fight fans on his weight management ahead of UFC 214 by poking fun at Daniel Cormier’s towel tricks to hit weight at UFC 210.

Prior to his rematch against Anthony Johnson earlier this year in Buffalo, New York, “DC” missed the 205-pound mark on his first attempt, only to come make a few minutes later to hit the bullseye (see it again here).

Of course, many accused Cormier of using an old trick to cheat the system by pulling down on a towel in order to make himself lighter. Daniel, though, denied any wrong doing and went on to defeat “Rumble” for the second time.

Jones and Cormier have been going at it via social media at every turn ahead of their much-anticipated rematch. But, the time for talking, memes and GIFs will come to an end as we are only a week and a half away from fight night.
