Daniel Cormier isn’t thrilled as you might imagine. He said as much.
Daniel Cormier was asked about Jon Jones and his reduced suspension tonight on UFC Tonight. Now mind you, DC is at work at the time, and probably wanted to say plenty more than he did. His frustrations, however, were not hard to spot. Here is an exert from what he had to say.
“I’m the UFC double champion. I have bosses in the back and I’m talking about this guy because I have too. I’ve moved past that guy. I went about my business. I went and won another title. Now this guy’s suspension is up, so we’ll see what happens.
I think people get excited, people get excited about the prospect of us fighting again, but I’ve got a fight with Brock Lesnar. Why would I look back? Why would I look back to Jones now when I’ve got a fight? Obviously as a competitor I want to fight the guy whose beat me twice, but I’ve got a fight. Why go back? I’ve got a bigger fight with Brock Lesnar, why should I go back?”
Daniel Cormier also had a message for USADA. Bottom line, he’s disappointed. You can see his response below thanks to this Tweet by Fox Sports UFC.
