Jon Jones to DC: You beat a guy that was 50 years old in your last fight
Jon Jones isn’t exactly impressed with the path Daniel Cormier has taken to earn a shot at the light heavyweight title.
After debuting in the Octagon with heavyweight victories over Frank Mir and Roy Nelson, Cormier moved to 205 pounds, where he has garnered dominant triumphs against Patrick Cummins and Dan Henderson in his first two outings.
The funny thing is, just 1-2 years ago, Hendo was slated to fight Jones before an injury interrupted that show down, then Machida + Rashad beat Hendo up to de-rail that....but after Hendo KO'd Fedor, a lot of ppl wanted to see him fight Jones. Doubt he would have won, but he is a diff style of fighter Jones has fought. Would love to hear what Hendo thinks of these comments.....lol WAR HENDO
