Jon Jones Discusses His History With Daniel Cormier – Calls Cormier a Pawn
Posted by Larry Csonka on 08.04.2014

- Jon Jones recently spoke about his history with Daniel Cormier while appearing on The MMA Hour. Here are the highlights…

"The whole backstory between me and Daniel Cormier, it's really ridiculous. Its basically, I ran into the guy behind the stage at the Brock Lesnar-Cain Velasquez fight. I think he approached me, or I approached his group, I'm not sure. He introduced himself, so I sarcastically said to him, ‘So you're a wrestler,' he was like ‘yeah, I'm a wrestler blah blah blah.' I was like ‘dude, I bet I could take you down.' It was me trying to be personal, it was me trying to be friendly, it was me trying to have an inside joke with someone I didn't know.

I had no clue he was such a prideful person, and at the moment I guess he just got really offended, which was very immature on his part. He decided I had disrespected his great name he decided he didn't like me and had some sort of personal vendetta against me. I think the whole thing's silly.

I don't dislike him. I think he's a great talker, I think he realizes that this could be his biggest payday, so he needs to sell the fight. I don't dislike him. I look at him as another pawn in this whole thing."
