Jon “Bones” Jones did not take too kindly to light heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier and Anthony Johnson’s words about him recently as he awaits a decision on his UFC 200 failed drug test.
Even outside of the cage, Jones looked to highlight his dominance of the division via his Twitter.
“Can’t wait to get back and slap one of these light heavyweights, even on the sidelines I’m more relevant than anyone in that division,” Jones wrote.
“You boys know when we all retire you will just be known as one of my contenders, easy for y’all to talk that sh-t when daddy ain’t home.”
He then aimed his words at Cormier and Johnson individually.
“DC I’ll always be that ‘normal guy’ who worked your ass,” Jones wrote.
“And AJ you calling my out of the cage problems amazing is almost hysterical. Trying to sh-t on me doesn’t make you look anymore like a saint.”
Jones is the former light heavyweight division, but was stripped of the title in early 2015 following a hit-and-run incident. Upon his return in 2016, he fought Ovince Saint Preux for the interim title when Cormier was pulled out of the originally scheduled title bout for UFC 197.
He won the interim title handily, and the rematch was once again set for UFC 200 until it was announced three days before fight night that Jones had failed a drug test and was immediately pulled from the bout.
Jones has yet to have his hearing with the Nevada State Athletic Commission, as it was rescheduled to take place Oct. 31 where a sentence for his failed test with be determined.
