Daniel Cormier decided to plaster Jon Jones’ visage over a punching bag in his gym this week, leading to an expected response from Jones on Instagram. Check it:
It’s good to see you enjoying your last days as paper champ Daniel. I was actually planning on leaving you alone and letting you enjoy them with your family, then you had to go and put this weird shit on the Internet. It’s obvious I’m balls deep in your head right now, but you can pause with all that groping there pussy boy. You’ll be getting your ass kicked soon enough, just really hoping these aren’t your tactics for UFC 200. See you soon buddy, train smart. Don’t need you pulling out again. ~The actual light heavyweight champion
Penick’s Analysis: Cormier will probably claim he’s in Jones’ head based on this response, and the cycle will continue for another month until we finally settle things in the cage. That said, it is a rather awkward clip for Cormier to put out, not that him wanting to punch Jones’ face any way he can is all that odd. It continues to be little more than needling from both until they can get in the cage to actually hit one another, but don’t expect it to stop anytime soon, either.
