On July 29th, Jon Jones and Daniel Cormier will meet in the Octagon at UFC 214 for one of the biggest grudge matches in the history of the UFC. That fight will serve as a rematch to one of the most highly anticipated fights in UFC history. In the pair’s first fight, Jones took a unanimous decision as he outstruck Cormier throughout the course of the 5 round title fight at UFC 182. In addition, Jones also landed several takedowns throughout the course of the fight, surprising many.

Ahead of the rematch, things are extremely tense between the two men. While no press conferences have been held by the UFC yet ahead of the fight, the two men have started the war of words on social media, with Jones posting a series of disses on Cormier’s Instagram post, which prompted a response from the champ:
And they say I'm obsessed. Dance for me boy, keep commenting on all my shit. Watch me work. Show those insecurities. In your moment of judgement you pay close attention to the one that's handing out the punishment. You got two weeks. Play my game! P.S You have a limp Dick and Horrible leg Genetics. #andstill #twoweeks #downgoesjones #urdonejonnyboy
This of course ultimately led to Jones dissing Cormier on Instagram with a picture of his own, where he mocked Cormier for using the privacy towel to offset his weight in order to make 205 pounds for his UFC 210 fight with Anthony Johnson.
Tune in July 29th to see the fight go down!
