Former UFC light-heavyweight champion Jon Jones is up to his old tricks again. As well as more encounters with the law and courts lately, ‘Bones’ has once again gone full heel on social media. At first Jones actually offered commiserations to the injured Daniel Cormier, after the current champ was forced out of their UFC 197 rematch with injury, but that amicable side of ‘Bones’ was not on show for long.
He offered ‘DC’ the best of luck with recovery at first, saying he wouldn’t wish an injury on anyone. Then, when Ovince St Preux replaced his nemesis at UFC 197, Jones was once again polite, thanking OSP for taking the fight on short notice. It wouldn’t be long before we’d see the vintage Jon Jones back in action though, and he tore in to Cormier yesterday following an appearance for both men on The MMA Hour.
During his spot on the popular MMA talk show, Cormier actually offered to pay for Ovince St Preux to train at AKA (American Kickboxing Academy) for his upcoming fight with Jones. The ex-champion got win of this, and suddenly was once again bashing his old rival on Twitter:
Willing to train OSP and is willing to pay for his expenses? You are a sheep in wolves clothing and I see right through you. pussy.

Predictable? Yeah probably, but it’s led to a barrage of hot Tweets from both Daniel Cormier, but also some Jones fans that are trolling the current champion on Twitter…
