Jon Jones Fires Back at Critics, Defends Wish to Fight Daniel Cormier

By FCF Staff

As Jon Jones continues to take heat from critics questioning his desire to fight Daniel Cormier, and not Alexander Gustafsson next, the light-heavyweight champ has fired back.

Recently UFC President Dana White relayed that the hold up in booking a rematch between Jones and Gustafsson, is in fact because “Bones” wants to fight Cormier. The revelation hasn’t sat well with some fans, who are hoping to see Jones-Gustafsson II sooner than later.

In response, Jones reportedly posted the video above on his Instagram account, questioning how his desire to face Cormier makes him a “coward.” The video is no longer on Jones’ Instagram account, but has been re-posted by others.

Jones defeated Gustafsson via unanimous decision at UFC 165 in September, in what was an instant classic.
