“I think a lot of times when you get a fight that’s personal it motivates the athletes. No one wants to lose to someone you don’t like.”
“I’m sure when I beat him he won’t like me too much,” Jones said of Cormier. “I could see me and Daniel having a respectful relationship after the bout. Our problems … they really aren’t that personal. They’re actually kind of silly. After you fight a guy you definitely develop a certain amount of respect for him and bond with him. So yea, I could see us not having problems after this fight.”
