Video: Jon Jones on Jimmy Kimmel Live making fun of Daniel Cormier ahead of UFC 178


"Bones" also explains how their feud first got started (hear "DC's" version here).

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) light heavyweight titleholder Jon Jones was a guest on Jimmy Kimmel Live earlier this week to preview his upcoming 205-pound title defense against division number one contender Daniel Cormier.

And if you thought "Bones" was going to take the high road, you're either incredibly optimistic, or new to the sport.

Jones took the opportunity to goof on his upcoming opponent, who meets him in the pay-per-view (PPV) main event of UFC 178 on Sept. 27, 2014 in Las Vegas, Nevada, but did make time to discuss other things, as well, like his training camp and life as the light heavyweight kingpin.

Watch the video embedded above and then check out part two below:

Jones and Cormier were involved in a media day brawl back on Monday (watch it) and have been using the spotlight to continue their feud. If their goal was to get fans hyped for their upcoming title fight in "Sin City," then mission accomplished.
