Jon Jones and Daniel Cormier never see eye to eye, but they do on Alexander Gustafsson

In a development you can file under “MMA Things I thought I’d Never See,” Jon Jones and Daniel Cormier are on the same page about something.

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.

Cormier and Gustafsson last week had an awkward encounter during an episode of “UFC Tonight” on FS1, which was later followed by Gustafsson taking a shot at Cormier in announcing his new contract.

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.
