The UFC Light Heavyweight champ guested on the Jimmy Kimmel Show last night and continued to disparage his UFC 178 challenger Daniel Cormier.
The fine folks at ABC have released two video excerpts from UFC champ Jon Jones' appearance last night on the Jimmy Kimmel Show. We've also got the complete video segment below for as long as it remains up on YouTube.
Jones rehashed the story of his first encounter with his UFC 178 challenger Daniel Cormier.
"I had no problem with him at first. I met him backstage at (UFC 121), and I heard he was an Olympic wrestler, and I wrestled at a junior college and won nationals for junior college, so obviously he probably has an advantage being an Olympic-level wrestler.
"So I go up to him just trying to start conversation, and I'm like, ‘Olympics, huh?' And he's like, ‘Yeah, I wrestled in the Olympics.' I was like, ‘I bet I could take you down any day.' And he just - I mean, I had no idea he'd be so prideful. He took some serious offense to the fact that I didn't know who he was initially."
