community news, Daniel Cormier slams ‘Cialis boy’ Jon Jones for barbs about UFC 210 weigh in

Daniel Cormier has addressed Jon Jones’ comments on his weigh-in controversy.

On Friday morning, during the UFC 210 official weigh-ins, the UFC light heavyweight champion came in at 1.2 pounds over the limit required for light heavyweight championship bouts. Cormier was given another chance to weigh-in less than three minutes later, and was able to make the weight, but was holding the towel used to cover his body in the process, which many claimed was a trick used to manipulate the scale.

Jones didn’t hold anything back when asked about the weigh-in situation at a press conference Friday night, saying it was one of the dirtiest things he’s seen in sports.

After having fought and defended his title against Anthony Johnson in the main event of Saturday’s UFC 210, Cormier responded to his rival’s comments at the post-fight conference.

“It’s like you take a table and you put a bunch of kitchen appliances, and at the end of one side, there is a pot and at the other end there is a kettle,” Cormier said. “And the pot starts yelling ‘you’re dirty,’ while you’re sitting there with a steroid needle. Thats my opinion on that, you sit over there pot with your Cialis or whatever it’s called, and you throw it at the kettle, so sit over there pot in detention, Cialis boy.”

Jones, of course, was suspended for one year by USADA last July after failing an anti-doping test due to a tainted drug Jones took to enhance his sexual performance. It’s expected that once Jones is eligible to fight come July, Cormier will be meeting him in a rematch with a chance to avenge his only career loss.

But if for some reason that doesn’t come to fruition, Cormier wouldn’t lose sleep not having the opportunity to get redemption against Jones.

“At this point, it doesn’t anymore,” Cormier said. “If I were done today, I would be completely fine with everything that I have accomplished. I don’t feel like I should let this young man have so much control over me and my legacy. He beat me, so what he won a fight. I would love to fight him again and beat him, but if I don’t fight him, especially for something that I cannot control, I’ll be fine. I can actually walk away today and be completely proud of my career in mixed martial arts: 19-1, UFC champion, Strikeforce champion, King of the Cage champion, regional circuit champions and all after the age of 30. I’ll be fine.”

When asked to expand on the weigh-in incident, Cormier doubled down on previous comments that he was hanging onto the towel to cover his private areas since he was weighing in naked.

“I made the weight, that’s how you put it to rest,” Cormier said. “I fought tonight, defended my championship. I knew that the scale wasn’t weighing what I weighed upstairs. I’ve been checking my weight all week.

“If I was holding the towel, I was just trying to hide myself. Because when I got off the first time, my ass was showing. It’s on Ariel’s website [MMAFighting.com], I saw it. My entire ass — moon landing. So I just wanted to cover myself.”
