Daniel Cormier fires back at ‘steroid cheat’ Jon Jones and his wife ... or is it just his ‘baby mama?’

Esther Lin/MMA Fighting

The rivalry between current Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Light Heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier and ex-division king, Jon Jones, is not dead. Not by a long shot.

The two hard-hitting combatants picked up their intense beef earlier today (Mon., June 25, 2018) on Twitter after “Bones” referenced “DC’s” wife in a social media post, declaring that even she knows that her husband’s thoughts are constantly on Jones ... even in his dreams.

Shortly thereafter, Cormier took to his own Twitter account to fire back at Jones, saying no one should be bringing wives (or baby mama’s) into the mess, especially him based on all the drama his significant other has had to endure because of his constant troubles inside — and outside — of the Octagon.

Jon, you’re a bitch! You’re one now always been one. Sit back and watch me be great, you steroid cheat. Let’s not talk about wives man. Come on, I’m sure with all the shit you’ve done I could get a conversation from your wife. I mean from your girlfriend ,baby mama?

Of course, one would be remiss if we didn’t point out Jones’ DUI crash back in 2012 in which he crashed his luxury car into a telephone pole with two unidentified women riding shotgun. Then there was Jones’ multiple failed drug tests and legal troubles.

This isn’t the first time Jones has dragged family into his beef with Cormier, as the two men nearly came to blows (again) during a pre-fight press conference after “Bones” referenced his children.
