Daniel Cormier impressively beat Anthony Johnson at UFC 187 to win the vacant light heavyweight champion. As Joe Rogan came over to interview Cormier about his impressive win, DC went straight to calling out the disgraced and now former champ in Jon Jones.
“Joe Rogan, no disrespect to you or the 16,000 people in this arena,” Cormier started. “But I have a message for one man. Jon Jones, get your shit together, I’m waiting for you!!”
Shortly after screaming at the camera in a bit that would surely be used on numerous promotional videos to promote a future contest between the two, DC immediately walked out of the cage and into the crowd.
Cormier and Jones engaged in an infamous brawl a few months ago, which led to their title fight last January. Jones won the contest by decision, but personal demons and controversies outside the cage have led to the UFC stripping him of the title and being suspended indefinitely.
DC now becomes the 2nd champion in the AKA stable, with other top contenders like Luke Rockhold and Khabib Nurmagomedov also on the path to future title bouts.
