UFC 178: Jon Jones Tells Daniel Cormier “Maybe, You’ll Get me Down Once”

By FCF Staff

Jon Jones and Daniel Cormier continue to verbally spar while making the media rounds, following their brawl at a UFC 178 press conference on Monday.

The light-heavyweights appeared on Fox Sports 1 recently, and not surprisingly, it didn’t take long before the rivals began to argue.

After discussing what led to their now highly publicized incident, the two started to talk about their upcoming, September 27th bout. 

At one point, Jones challenged the decorated wrestler “to get me down five times in that five round fight. You won’t be able to do that. Maybe you will get me down once. I believe in my whole heart that I’ll get you down, too.”

The light-heavyweight champion also questioned whether Cormier has faced the level of opposition that he has to date.

The upcoming bout will headline UFC 178, which will go down at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.
