Daniel Cormier doesn’t think Jon Jones is in much of a position to question his injury removal from UFC 197, citing how Jones himself has pulled out of fights in the past in a response on Twitter.

Penick’s Analysis: Cormier’s overplaying a couple of things here, but it’s true that Jones’ own leg injury delayed their first matchup. That said, UFC 151 wasn’t Jones’ fault, despite the UFC holding it against him. That’s on Dan Henderson not revealing his injury until it was far too late. Obviously Jones’ own issues scrapped him from UFC 187, but I don’t know that it’s full on hypocrisy for him to question Cormier. That’s simply their feud at the moment, and will have each of them continuing to make comments about one another until they fight again.
