After being reinstated as the UFC’s light-heavyweight champion earlier this week, Daniel Cormier is calling on fans to “lay off” the man who defeated him in July.

Recently the California Commission overturned Jones’ stoppage win over Cormier on July 29th, as a result of the potential doping violation he’s been flagged for. The UFC then proceeded to announce that Cormier was being reinstated as the promotion’s 205 champion.  Jones has denied taking anabolic steroids.

Cormier posted the image and comments below on Friday.

Life can be such a roller coaster. I think sometimes you have to just take a moment and breathe it in. You never know what's gonna come your way. You try and handle it the best way you can. One thing that has been amazing is the support from you the fans. I have never felt so much love. It's crazy because this all happened when I lost. Guys now I call upon you to take a breathe, lay off of Jones. Let him and his team figure out what's going on and what happened. I was down and some may have kicked me but the majority of you showed compassion and love. After the fight Jones showed compassion, regardless of what has happened as humans we must show compassion. Jon is not on this ride alone, remember this man has a family. Let's respect that. You don't show ur support for me by hurting others. Again I thank you for ur unbelievable support and I trust that you guys will come thru again. DC @layziethesavage
