    Jon Jones might have recently slammed bitter rival Daniel Cormier on social media, but he has little desire to get back into the cage with him for a third time.

    The former UFC light heavyweight champion told ESPN he doesn’t want to fight Cormier, the current heavyweight and light heavyweight champion, because he has defeated him twice already (the second win, a third-round knockout, was later overturned to a no contest due to a Jones positive drug test). Jones doesn’t think he has much to gain from a third win over Cormier, so he doesn’t see the point in a trilogy.

    Colour me shocked that a guy who wasn't confident enough to fight DC without PEDs doesn't want to fight him now that he'll be under even more intense scrutiny.

    LOL@ having all the marbles. You're in your physical prime and you had to cheat to beat a guy pushing 40.

    Would you be excited to fighter a guy you already beat convincingly 2 times?

    Not fighting him would be the only way to truly beat him once and for all.

    Good. That problem worked itself out nicely. Neither guy wants to fight the other.

    Don't let your hatred get in the way of common Sense. You are better than that

    How long did your hatred undermine better judgement when Conor fought? You are better than this.

    DC needs to win a few fights before I can say he's earned a third fight with Jones
