Jon Jones appeared on Ariel Helwani’s MMA Show recently and spoke about Daniel Cormier.
Jones said that he believes Cormier won’t make the weight cut to face Jones again.
“He won’t do it,” Jones said. “He won’t do it. I just think it takes a lot out of him to make that weight cut. I haven’t seen him in person but I hear that he’s bigger than ever. To lose all that weight and to come up short a third time, it just takes a lot of courage I’d imagine.
“I don’t think he has the balls to do it. I think he knows what to say to the people to appear not afraid of me, but I think deep down inside he knows what it’s like to lose to me twice, going home, crying – I just doubt he’s going to do that to himself again.”
“I don’t know, I don’t really care what Daniel Cormier does honestly. I’ve been done with him. Daniel Cormier is not my toughest opponent, I’d say Alexander Gustafsson was my toughest opponent. He’s not this rival that the world wants him to be to me. He’s a guy that I’ve beat twice.”
What do you think? Is Jon Jones right?
