In the immediate aftermath of the disappointing news that Daniel Cormier would be forced out of his scheduled rematch with Jon Jones at UFC 197, “Bones” took to his twitter to voice a positive message for the champion and his most bitter rival.
It has since been announced that Jones will remain on the April 23 card, taking on late replacement and No. 6 ranked Ovince Saint Preux.
While “Bones” has made it clear that he appreciates Saint Preux stepping up on short notice, one would have to assume that he’s a bit let down at the circumstances.
The ex-champion was set to make his return to action, and attempt to secure the title he had never technically lost after dealing with a plethora of legal issues over the last year.
Jones and Cormier had also been in the midst of an intense buildup to a rematch a year and a half in the making.
With that being said, it wasn’t surprising to see Jones once again take to his twitter, this time sending a shot “DC’s” way:
Jones has since deleted the tweet.
Cormier was recently seen on a sneak peak of the UFC’s “Counterpunch” show, saying that he was willing to die in order to topple Jones.
In the end, “Bones” clearly feels as if that wasn’t true.
