Prior to Jon Jones and Daniel Cormier’s first meeting at UFC 182 over a year ago, many believed that Jones was in DC’s head.
Since then, Cormier won the vacant light heavyweight championship against Anthony Johnson, and defended the belt against Alexander Gustafsson in a ‘Fight of the Year’ candidate.
Despite that, many believe that Jones is in DC’s head once again, however the champ knows that isn’t the case.
He spoke to ESPN:
I actually think it’s funny people believe I’m so emotionally invested. I feel different now, in regards to fighting Jon the last time. The fact Jon thinks he’s in my head and it’s affecting me is insanity. I’m actually more than fine. Yeah, I’ve been thinking about him because that’s who I was fighting, but it’s not like it was before. I used to charge at him and want to fight him every time I came into contact with him. That’s not the case anymore. I think we see what we want to see as humans. I think people see me as this emotional wreck because they want to, when it’s not the reality of the situation. And you know what? I don’t mind it. I don’t mind people going, ‘Daniel’s a wreck!’ Are you going to tune in to watch? Because that’s really all I care about.
With Jones vs. Saint Preux being an interim title fight, the winner will face Daniel Cormier. With that being said, how do you think Jones vs. DC II would go?
