Jon Jones Calls Out Daniel Cormier After Comeback Victory

Jon Jones Calls Out Daniel Cormier After Comeback Victory
By Mark Farrelly Updated

After an eventful week, to say the very least, Jon Jones is once again the UFC light heavyweight champion, thanks to a third round victory over Alexander Gustafsson for the vacant title.

Making his comeback from suspension, Jones looked comfortable throughout and never let Gustafsson overly trouble him, before getting a TKO finish at 2:02 in the third. The belt was on the line after two-weight champion, Daniel Cormier, relinquished his light-heavyweight title in the build-up.

Jones was quick to call out his old foe - and current heavyweight champion - while speaking to Joe Rogan after his win:

I know there's a guy who's been calling himself 'Champ Champ'. I mean, what guy just gives up his belt because somebody's home. Daddy's home, DC!

Prove to the fans you're a Champ Champ. Come get a taste. I'm here. Get your belt back. It'll be waiting right here.

Whether or not Cormier would cut to light-heavyweight reamins to be seen, so perhaps Jones will need to step up to heavyweight if he is to get one last fight with his nemesis.

Last night's fight was moved to Los Angeles from Las Vegas at the last minute because Jones was found to have trace amounts of a steroid metabolite in his system during a test carried out on December 9th. USADA found that the amount, measured in picograms, was residual from a test which Jones failed last year and had no performance-enhancing benefit.

Nonetheless, the UFC moved the fight to California, as the Nevada State Athletic Commission did not have time to go through a hearing on such short notice.
