If the ability to trash-talk was a submission move, it’s likely that the fight between Jon Jones & Daniel Cormier at UFC 178 would end in a draw.
The war of words started early and heated up again this week with Jones announcing that he has suffered a cut above his eye and had to consequently get stitches ahead of the match.
Cormier showed no sympathy and said that the cut would now be his target when the two clash and today, Jones used his Instagram to respond again.
‘His hands are too fast.’ ‘His Jiu Jitsu is too good.’ ‘His wrestling is too good.’ ‘He’s too fast.’ ‘Too experienced.’ ‘Can’t beat his Karate.’ ‘Can’t beat his timing.’ I’ve literally heard everything. Everything.
Jones also tweeted that he would be a much tougher test for Cormier than his opponents of the past.
I can’t wait to see the look on Daniel’s face once he realizes that I’m nothing like Dan Henderson or Patrick Cummins
