As the months dwindle down to weeks, UFC light heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier and interim beltholder Jon Jones have begun to ramp up their trash talk and hype machine for their UFC 200 headlining bout.
Cormier posted the following video of his Jon Jones heavy bag on Instagram, and, of course, Jones had to respond.
Ha this is awesome. Can’t remember the company that sent it to me. So if you are the company that sent that to me I say thank you and please let me know so that I can tag you. You have made training camp easy lol. #goodtimes #trainingcamp #aka #ufc200 #happytodowhatilove

A Note From The Actual Light Heavyweight Champion
It’s good to see you enjoying your last days as paper champ Daniel. I was actually planning on leaving you alone and letting you enjoy them with your family, then you had to go and put this weird shit on the Internet. It’s obvious I’m balls deep in your head right now, but you can pause with all that groping there pussy boy. You’ll be getting your ass kicked soon enough, just really hoping these aren’t your tactics for UFC 200. See you soon buddy, train smart. Don’t need you pulling out again. ~The actual light heavyweight champion
We’re still slightly more than a month out from UFC 200, but things only promise to get more heated as clock ticks down.
