And that something is Alexander Gustafsson.
Both Jones (22-1 MMA, 16-1 UFC) and Cormier (20-1 MMA, 9-1 UFC) hold decision wins over Gustafsson (18-4 MMA, 10-4 UFC), denying “The Mauler” of winning the UFC light heavyweight title in his only two attempts. For Jones, that was back at UFC 165 in 2013. For Cormier, UFC 192 in 2015.
Gustafsson recently has been talking a lot about two things: He’d love to fight Jones again – even in a boxing match – and he wants his next fight to be for an interim title since Cormier, the current 205-pound champion, is tied up with challenging Stipe Miocic for the heavyweight title July 7 at UFC 206.
Which leads us to Jones and Cormier, who are bitter rivals as we know, tag-teaming to take down Gustafsson on Twitter.
Take a screen grab. We might never see Jones and Cormier agree on something ever again.
