UFC light heavyweight kingpin Jon Jones has responded to Daniel Cormier, this after ‘DC’ suggested Dominick Reyes‘ size could give ’Bones’ problems.
Reyes kept his perfect record in check at last night’s UFC Boston event, defeating former middleweight champion Chris Weidman by way of first round knockout.
Following his sensational victory, Reyes took the opportunity to callout Jon Jones in his post-fight interview.
Shortly following the conclusion of last night’s event, Daniel Cormier spoke about the possibility of Dominick Reyes fighting ‘Bones’ next.
“He’s healthy after that big fight and Jones just got through his most recent court problems or whatever it was.. so why not let him fight?” Daniel Cormier said. “Dominick Reyes has the one key thing that has proven to give Jones pause, and that’s size.”
Jon Jones would respond to Cormier’s comments earlier this afternoon on Twitter, while also issuing a warning to Reyes.
“Size is definitely not my issue lol.” Jones captioned a video of Cormier’s comments on Twitter.
He then addressed Dom Reyes callout.
