Back in August 2013, he told MMA Fighting that he only praises Jones’ fighting ability and the things he’s accomplished, not his personality. There was once again plenty of praise to go around on Saturday ni read news >>

New Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) light heavyweight No. 1 contender Daniel Cormier (because of this) talks about his last sparring session with longtime training partner and UFC heavyweight champion Cain Velasquez (1:20 mark), which threw him for a loop because Velasquez was trying to emulate Jon Jones -- complete with side kick to the knee.

"I think a lot of times when you get a fight that's personal it motivates the athletes. No one wants to lose to someone you don't like. I'm sure when I beat him he won't like me too much. I could see me and Daniel having a respectful relationship after the bout. Our problems...they really aren't that personal. They're actually kind of silly. After you fight a guy you definitely develop a certain amount of respect for him and bond with him. So yeah, I could see us not having problems after this f read news >>
