While things have gotten not only heated, but also personal, between the two on social media, UFC light heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier believes that Jon Jones gets more credit than he deserves when it comes to verbal warfare.
He spoke to Fox Sports:
“I think when Jon is alone with his thoughts late at night, I guess most of his tweets like that are late at night when he’s alone, he’s by himself and he’s just in his own element to be who he is. I think he’s on the internet reading comments and he wrote that but I had probably seen that 100 times with people tagging me with stuff on Twitter. So to me it says that he might be reading these comments and he might be taking it and using it as his own,”
“I think sometimes we kind of give him a little more credit than he deserves. Jon isn’t as sharp as people want to make him out to be. They say he was so clever in that instance, I don’t think he’s that clever. He’s not the smartest guy. So I think we’re giving him a little more credit than he deserves for some of these things that he’s saying. I think we might be overestimating his smarts a little bit.”
