The Insults Were Flying at Jon Jones-Daniel Cormier Press Conference (Video)
There’s no telling how the fight between Daniel Cormier and Jon Jones at UFC 2014 will turn out. But Wednesday’s press conference was pretty entertaining. The two light heavyweights traded some pretty good zingers and, as you would expect, the best ones had to do with drugs.
The highlight was when Jones said Cormier looks like a crackhead. Cormier responded, “I can look like a crackhead, but I’ve never been a crackhead like you, though.”
Jones of course was caught taking cocaine by a pre-fight drug test in December 2014. Just a few months after that he was charged with a hit-and-run, stripped of his UFC title, and suspended for one year.
Last July, Jones was supposed to make his comeback against Cormier at UFC 200. However, just days before the fight he failed another drug test, this time for an anti-estrogen substance and an aromatase inhibitor. Cormier has been dogging Jones ever since, accusing him of being a drug addict and a cheater.
Will they FINALLY meet again in the octagon at UFC 214 this Saturday? With Jones you can never be too sure. But it’s looking good.
