When Jon Jones will return for UFC and have another fight inside the Octagon remains to be seen due to his suspension, but one fighter that does want to collide with Bones again is his old rival, Daniel Cormier.
Cormier is currently preparing himself for his superfight later this year for the UFC Heavyweight Championship when he takes on the current champion Stipe Miocic at UFC 226 in July later this year. However, this hasn't stopped him from talking about his former rival.
Speaking to the media on Friday, DC said that he would love to fight against Jones in the Octagon for the third time, as he believes he can beat him, saying their first two fights were good, so a third would be even better.
The UFC Light Heavyweight Champion said, according to the Bloody Elbow: “I want to fight Jon Jones. I do. I still feel I can win. I know that I’ve lost twice, and the last fight, I got kicked in the head. But I feel like we were having a good fight. And I feel like every fight’s been good. And I feel like if we fought a third time it would be even better.”
Bones caught wind of this call out and replied simply using four words in a tweet, as he said: "Come get me baby."
It's fair to say that there are a lot of UFC fans that want to see a third fight between Jones and Cormier take place, but they're split on what the outcome of the fight would be.
Still, UFC fans may have to wait a while before Jones is allowed to step foot inside an Octagon again, as he could face a four-year suspension after he failed second failed drug test in his career around the time of his UFC 214 clash against DC last year.
Jones had originally won the fight, but the result was overturned to a no contest after it was revealed that he tested positive for Turinabol (anabolic steroid). Cormier was reinstated as the official light heavyweight champion in September and Jones hasn't fought since.
Many UFC fans want to see a third fight between Jones and Cormier, but by the looks of things, they might be waiting a while for it to happen.
