Snoop Dogg says Daniel Cormier got what he deserved against Jon Jones at UFC 214.
Jon Jones was surprisingly respectful to arch rival Daniel Cormier after their light heavyweight championship rematch at UFC 214 last month.
Jones, who knocked out Cormier with a head kick and follow up punches, thanked ‘DC’ for being his ‘biggest rival and motivator’ and applauded him for being a ‘model champion’ in the past.
Cormier was overwhelmed with emotion in the post-fight interview and broke down in tears, but rapper and UFC broadcaster Snoop Dogg thinks the former Olympian behaved like a ‘b-tch’.
According to Snoop, Cormier deserved his beat down because he disrespected ‘Bones’ during the lowest point of his career.
“You see what he [Jon Jones] did to DC?” Snoop told TMZ in a recent interview. “He had him crying like a b-tch.
“You shouldn’t have been talking all that sh-t when he was on suspension. Never talk about a man when he’s down; you wanna pick him up when he’s down.”
Jones, of course, was stripped of the light heavyweight title in 2015 after his involvement in a hit-and-run incident in Albuquerque, New Mexico. The pound-for-pound great was scheduled to rematch Cormier at UFC 200 but was removed at the last minute due to a failed drug test for hydroxy-clomiphene and Letrozole.
Jones rebounded at UFC 214, knocking out Cormier in emphatic fashion and re-establishing himself as the best light heavyweight in the world and perhaps the best pound-for-pound fighter of all time.
The 30-year-old talent called out heavyweight superstar Brock Lesnar in the post-fight interview and said he plans to kick his ‘ass’.
