Excuse of the weak: it's not that I wasn't man enough to get my back off the cage, Herb Dean allowed him to do it

During a recent Nevada Athletic Commission hearing, it was announced that veteran referee Herb Dean will serve as the third man inside the Octagon at UFC 197 when Jon Jones challenges Daniel Cormier for the light heavyweight title.
While Cormier made it known that he is not a fan of Dean, “Bones” took the news as a chance to call-out his bitter rival once again.
Last January, Jones successfully defended his title against Cormier via decision. He was stripped of the belt following a legal run-in, allowing “DC” to win it vs. Anthony Johnson.
