It’s just days after Daniel Cormier beat Anthony Johnson for the UFC light-heavyweight title, but the Jon Jones talk has already started boiling up.

Even Cormier can’t keep himself from taking jabs at the former champ, as if he was trying to build up for a rematch down the road. While talking on The MMA Hour, Cormier said he absolutely hopes Jones was watching the fight and saw him get the belt.

“I hope he was (watching). Can you imagine him sitting there watching me, of all people, get the belt? If the roles were reversed, I would be going insane if I had to watch him do that, if I were in his situation. He doesn’t want to see me win, he doesn’t want to see me carry what he probably feels is still his title — which it isn’t, it’s mine. He doesn’t want to see that. But I don’t know, maybe Jon is in so much of a better place now after going through the issues that he has, that he’s probably let everything go. But we will see, I guess.”

So, I guess this will probably be used for all the previews ahead of their second fight right?
