Cormier to Jones: “Where I’m from you don’t tell a man to shut up”

Jon “Bones” Jones is never one to lack in confidence. As opponents look to challenge the champ for his title, like Anderson Silva, Jones has voiced his opinion on who he felt is worthy. As to who isn’t worthy of a title shot? Strikeforce champ Daniel Cormier is not enough of a name according to the champ. This did not sit well with the ‘fired up’ Strikeforce Grand Prix winner Daniel Cormier. Here’s what he had to say during the UFC 156 post-fight show.

“Jon Jones, you’re firing me up,” said Cormier when asked to address the matter during last night’s Fuel TV coverage of UFC 156. “Where I’m from, you don’t tell a man to shut up. That’s one thing you don’t do. Jon Jones, you and I will get it done.”

Both men currently have scheduled opponents as Daniel Cormier is set to face Frank Mir at UFC on Fox on April 20, and Jones will look to defend his title from Chael Sonnen on April 27 in Newark, NJ.
