Jon Jones is now without a doubt the P4P champ. Who else has had a #2 guy in their division as good as DC and destroyed them? #ufc214

People need to understand why D.C. was so hurt by outcome-The loss means he was never really champ & only had title because of Jons absence

@JonnyBones congrats Champ. Stop asking for retired fighters, I’ve been waiting to put my hands on you and so have all the fans.

Woaaaaaaahhhhhhh

Sucks to see D.C. Like this. Jon Jones acted like a true champ on that mic.

@dc_mma is a hell of a champ. He should be proud. And @JonnyBones way more humble than I expected .

What a fight – what an ending of a feud

Feeling so sad for Cormier! Was starting to feel he could take it home after amazing display of skills in the first 3 rounds. #UFC214
