Jon Jones Calls Daniel Cormier A Great Guy But Still Plans On UFC 214 Beatdown

Fighting fans are in for a real treat Saturday with the card that UFC 214 offers.

The card has everything you can ask for: bad blood, great wrestling, great striking and, best of all, championship fights.

Daniel Cormier and Jon Jones will square off for the light heavyweight title in the main event, and Jones spoke to the media Thursday afternoon about the upcoming bout.

“Bones” seemed very cool and confident about his weight cut, noting he didn’t have a workout planned for Thursday and that he even enjoyed some ice cream.

Cormier’s weight seems to be the bigger concern, but Jones wasn’t worried about that, saying he’d fight Cormier even if he was “10 pounds overweight.”

Jones also revealed that, during their latest standoff at the official press conference, he looked down at Cormier and called him a “little s—.” He said this was instinctual due to the fact he had been training with big heavyweights during his fight camp.

Regardless of the theatrics, this has all the stuff to be an extremely exciting second stanza in the history of these foes. Check out the video above for Jones’ full comments from UFC 214 Media Day.
