Jon Jones Fires The First Shot at Daniel Cormier: "I hope you're ready to come to daddy"

Following the announcement of the news that UFC Light heavyweight champion, Jon Jones will be defending his title against a new opponent in Daniel Cormier at UFC 178, the champ took to twitter to fire the first shot at his new challenger.

Jones sent a direct message to Cormier saying, “I hope you’re ready to come to daddy”.

This elicited a response from Cormier, albeit, unsuccessfully trying to reply to Jones’s DM, “I am. I’m gonna f–k you up”.


The champion has said in the past that he wished to face new challengers instead of a rematch against the now injured Alexander Gustafsson, in an unexpected twist, Jones gets his wish. And he made it known that this was the fight he wanted all along.


Jon Jones wasn’t done there, he followed up with his DM and his tweet by posting an instagram video saying he was done training for the day, but with the news he’s found some new motivation.

“I just got some more motivation, some new found motivation,” Jones said.

Jon Jones and Daniel Cormier have a long-brewing feud between them dating back to 2011 when the two nearly came to blows following the World MMA Awards presentation. The two light heavyweights will finally get to settle their differences in the Octagon on September 27th in Las Vegas.
