Daniel Cormier issues a warning to Jon Jones if the former champion decides to enter the cage after UFC 210’s main event fight on Saturday night.
Jon Jones is expected to be present on Saturday night’s UFC 210 card. Not only is his hometown of Rochester located just an hour away from Buffalo, he is also an interested spectator for the main event bout between Daniel Cormier and Anthony Johnson.
“Bones” will likely be facing the winner of the fight upon his return, and in the past, it has been customary for the new challenger to enter the cage and meet the victor. But as early as now, Cormier has already issued a warning if that does happen.
“He better not come in my cage after I win,” Cormier said after his open workout on Thursday. “He’s not welcomed in there, he’s still suspended. When he’s eligible to fight, then he can walk in the cage, but if he dares to step foot in that Octagon, something bad will happen.”
“DC” did give props to Jones for being the “most talented human being he has ever competed against.” At the same time, he maintains that he is laser-focused on “Rumble”, whom he needs to get through first.
“He’s so good at every aspect of fighting, but for him to have done the things he has done, to limit the history that he was making, it’s crazy, it’s sad,” Cormier said. “But at the end of the day, I have to worry about myself and Anthony Johnson. You guys [media] care about Jon Jones. We don’t. He’s a non-factor.”
“This is a guy that hasn’t fought in almost two years. The last time he fought Ovince Saint Preux, it was just a sh—ty fight, almost as bad as me and Anderson Silva.”
UFC 210 will be held on April 8th, at the KeyBank Center in Buffalo, New York.
