Daniel Cormier To Jon Jones: ‘Get Your Sh*T Right’

Daniel Cormier was once Jon Jones’ rival. Now, he has some words for Jones outside of the arena.

“From me to this guy, we’ll never be friends. But, human to human, you’ve got to get your s*** right and show some remorse,” Cormier said, via TMZ Sports.

Cormier was referring to Jones’ domestic violence arrest in September. Jones was also arrested previously for a DUI.

“All those little things you’ve got to think that it doesn’t matter who you are, what type of person you are, those things have to really make you look within yourself and make a decision,” Cormier said.

“Because no one’s perfect, but at a point, you’ve got to make a decision for not only you — for your daughters, for your fiancée, for your family, for everything. I think right now is that time.”

Cormier’s comments came after Jones’ coach, Mike Winkeljohn, banned Jones from training at the Jackson Wink MMA gym. Cormier said he supports Winkeljohn’s decision.

“Coach Winkeljohn’s decision shows what type of man he is, willing to step away from the money in order to stand on the grounds of what he believes,” Cormier said.

“You would think that for a young man like this, that would be a wake-up call. Those are your allies, your greatest allies. Even your greatest allies start to turn their back.”
