UFC 178: Jon Jones and Daniel Cormier continue their spat on Jay Mohr radio show


The day after their first media day staredown erupted into a brawl, UFC champ Jon Jones called in to the Jay Mohr show while Daniel Cormier was the guest. The results were predictable.

Following the explosive brawl at yesterday's UFC 178 stare down between UFC Light Heavyweight champ Jon Jones and challenger Daniel Cormier, the media tour continued. Today both men were on the Jay Mohr ESPN radio show. The results were predictable.

Here's how it started.

Jay Mohr: "You don't like him do you?"

Daniel Cormier: "I don't like Jon Jones. It's very hard for me to deal with Jon Jones, personally."

Jon Jones: "You can just call me Jon."

Daniel Cormier: "That would make it a little too personal. I'll just call you Jon Jones."

Jones: "I don't like you either Daniel."

Cormier: "We're oil and water. We don't mix. It's fine. We don't have to be friends."

Then, at Jones' insistence, Cormier admitted that Jones got the best of him at yesterday's press conference. Jones called Cormier an "insane stalker" but admitted that "I'm used to having a target on my back. But the difference between Daniel and other opponents is that he formulated an artificial reason to have a beef."
