Daniel Cormier could have gloated after news broke that Jon Jones tested positive for a banned substance in a UFC 214 pre-fight drug test. After all, the rivals have rarely hesitated to verbally tear into one another at any other point in their years-long series of disputes.

Instead, the newly restored UFC light heavyweight champion responded with a sense of grace and class not often associated with the sport of mixed martial arts. Rather than kick Jones while he was down, Cormier went on Instagram last week and posted a message asking fans to leave the troubled Jones and his family alone.

That simple action drew DC rave reviews. But on Monday’s edition of The MMA Hour, Cormier said he wasn’t looking to make some sort of sweeping gesture with the post.
