Jon Jones plays tweet and delete, takes a major shot at Daniel Cormier
Former UFC light heavyweight champion Jon “Bones” Jones will attempt to reclaim the title that he never actually lost when he squares off with current division champion Daniel Cormier in the main event of UFC 214 on July 29 in Anaheim, California.
The bitter rivals, Cormier and Jones, have taken numerous shots at one another in the lead up to their highly anticipated rematch and last night “Bones” took a major jab at “DC” with the following post.

Jon Jones has since deleted the tweet but not before it was seen by hundreds of thousands on social media.
Jones and Cormier first met in June of 2015, where “Bones” successfully defended his title earning a unanimous decision victory over “DC”.
Jones most recent fight came against Ovince Saint Preux who he defeated via unanimous decision at UFC 197 in April of 2016.
The longtime light heavyweight kingpin, Jones, has scored finishes over Vitor Belfort, Chael Sonnen, Quinton Jackson and Lyoto Machida, just to name a few, during his mixed martial arts career.
Cormier, meanwhile, was last seen in the cage in early April, when he defended his title with a second-round submission of Anthony “Rumble” Johnson. In his next most recent fight, which occurred in July of 2016, he was originally expected to fight Jon Jones, but ultimately fought and defeated Anderson Silva in a last-minute non-title fight after Jones was forced off the card after failing a drug test. Before defeating Silva, Cormier defended his title with a hard-fought decision defeat of Alexander Gustafsson, and won the title Jones had left vacant with a submission defeat of Rumble.
Who do you think will win the rematch when Jones and Cormier square off in the main event of UFC 214 on July 29 in Anaheim? Sound off PENN Nation!
