In the buildup to UFC 210, the UFC released a video of rap legend Snoop Dogg commentating on light heavyweight champ Daniel Cormier’s highlight reel. In this video, the rapper seemed to be quite impressed by the champ’s handiwork, applauding his “cold technique” and “full rhinoceros mode.” As it turns out, however, Snoop doesn’t actually seem to be a Cormier fan. In fact, he’d like to walk Cormier’s biggest rival, Jon Jones, to the Octagon in his comeback fight.
Snoop addresses Jones in a recent video shared to Twitter by Chamatkar Sandhu. See it at the top of this post.
“Champ, when you get back in the ring with that motherf*cker “DC” Cormier, I wanna walk you out while you kick his motherf*ckin’ ass,” Snoop says in the video.
Snoop echoed this sentiment in a recent interview with TMZ, calling Jones “the baddest motherf*cker to ever walk in the Octagon.”
“Skinny “Bones” Jones is the baddest motherf*cker to ever walk in the Octagon,” he said. “That’s my homeboy, and they’re gonna let him back in. Then they’re gonna make smoking weed legal in the UFC.”
At the moment, Jones is serving the tail end of a suspension stemming from a failed drug test in July of 2016. He will be eligible to compete again this July, which has led to widespread speculation that he will challenge Cormier for the title at July 8th’s UFC 213.
Cormier and Jones first met back in early 2015. On that night, Jones walked away with a well-deserved unanimous decision – though Cormier certainly had his moments in the fight.
Since then, Jones has been seen in the Octagon just once, scoring an insipid decision defeat over Ovince St. Preux. Cormier, meanwhile, has defeated Anthony “Rumble” Johnson (twice), Alexander Gustafsson and Anderson Silva since then.
Who do you think wins the Daniel Cormier vs. Jon Jones rematch? Sound off, PENN Nation!
