Hot Take: Daniel Cormier sounds off on Jon Jones reportedly passing a polygraph test


BOSTON – Daniel Cormier has plenty of history with Jon Jones. Their beef will go down as one of the most memorable in MMA history.

So naturally, Cormier has a thought on the recent report that Jones took – and passed – a polygraph test in an attempt to give credence to his assertion he didn’t knowingly take any banned substance surrounding their UFC 214 rematch.

“Jon Jones took a polygraph test to prove his innocence,” Cormier on Wednesday told reporters after a workout at Reebok’s Boston headquarters. “Now, I’m gonna say this: Ted Bundy passed a polygraph test. Ted Bundy passed a polygraph test, and then killed the (expletive) guy that was giving it to him! Bye, guys.”

It was a mic-drop moment for Cormier, who seldom bites his tongue about Jones and their rivalry.

In the wake of UFC 214, which was a third-round TKO win for Jones, he was informed by USADA that he had a potential doping violation, which would be his second and could lead to a potentially lengthy suspension – though nothing has been finalized or announced yet.

Does the polygraph test mean anything? Maybe in the court of public opinion, but not likely to the UFC or USADA. And it certainly doesn’t mean much for Cormier, other than fodder for comedy.

Next up for Cormier (19-1 MMA, 8-1 UFC) he’ll defend his light heavyweight title against Volkan Oezdemir (15-1 MMA, 3-0 UFC) on Saturday in the UFC 220 co-main event. It’s a title he had restored despite losing to Jones after Jones was stripped of the belt in the wake of yet another steroid scandal.

UFC 220 takes place at TD Garden in Boston. The main card airs on pay-per-view following prelims on FS1 and UFC Fight Pass.
