Jon ‘Bones’ Jones Mocks Daniel Cormier’s Towel-Holding Incident

Daniel Cormier received a lot criticism both inside and outside of the MMA community for holding his towel while he was being weighed.

Many thought this was a deliberate attempt make himself lighter than he really was. However, Cormier explained that he just wanted to keep himself covered:

Predictably, Jon “Bones” Jones did not buy D.C.’s explanation, and decided to ridicule the reigning Light Heavyweight Champion in a recent Facebook post:

All the discipline and hard work is definitely paying off, was a mean 217lbs today after practice. #NoShortcutsToGreatness #Earnit #CheatingAsshole

This isn’t the first time Bones has called out Cormier for the infamous towel-holding incident, either. Shortly after it happened, Jones told reporters it was a “clever trick”:

“I couldn’t believe what I was witnessing. I watched the guy. If you focus on his hands, you can see him looking down and balancing out his weight just right to make 205. It’s…what a clever trick. Pretty dishonest of him. The crazy thing is that it was allowed to happen. I would imagine there has to be some type of commission or something to go back and see this blatant foul play and adjust it…address it. No one’s addressed it. They just completely got away with doing one of the dirtiest things I’ve seen in sports. So…yeah.”

Jon Jones and Daniel Cormier will be going at it on July 29 in the main event of UFC 214.
